Hi-cube height restriction hijack? By Alan Peat

The row over the legality of transporting hi-cube containers (with a travel height of 4.5-4.6-metres) has now reached ministerial level, with a letter having been addressed to minister of transport, Sibusiso Ndebele, by the Durban harbour carriers’ division of the SA Association of Freight Forwarders (Saaff) in KwaZulu Natal.

If the latest rulings on the subject are retained, this would “constitute a logistical and financial disaster of biblical proportions for South Africa”, according to the division’s vice-chairman, Kevin Martin, MD of specialised container carrier, Freightliner Transport. With contradictory rulings now abounding, about half the containers transported in SA – all being of the hi-cube type – will just have to be

left standing. With current and proposed legislation, said Martin, and the road equipment presently available in this country, any trucker carrying these hi-cubes will be liable to be stopped, charged with illegal transportation, faced with the impounding of his vehicle and trailer, and possibly put out of business. “For over five years,” said the carriers’ letter to the minister, “we have

been endeavouring to have the legislation changed, in order to accommodate the transportation of international hi-cube containers within SA.” And, at the moment, over 50% of all containers road transported in SA (in excess of 500 000 units a year) are hi-cube containers, Martin added, with a travel height of 4.5-4.6-m. “Through the department of transport (DoT) KZN

task group,” he told FTW, “an international survey was undertaken by an independent consultant – at our expense – and supplied to the department.” In the interim, an unofficial moratorium has been placed on the offending section of legislation – one that restricts the travel height to 4.3-m for vehicles transporting hi-cube containers.

Alternatives available when Samba service ends By Alan Peat The intended closure of the Maersk Line ‘Samba’ service, directly linking South America and the Middle East via the Cape of Good Hope, has little impact on SA shippers, according to Maersk Line MD, David Williams. While it does affect cargoes travelling between

the Middle East and West Africa via Namibia, both services, he added, will have alternative options. The Samba service currently connects Jebel Ali, Walvis Bay, Vitoria, Itajai, Paranagua, Rio Grande, Santos, Salalah, and Jebel Ali. “It basically doesn’t suit market requirements,” said Williams.

From the January closure of the service, the South America-Middle East link will be replaced by a transhipment service out of Algeciras. This revised Samba service will connect the east coast of South America (ECSA) with the Middle East and West Africa at Algeciras, using ships on the EuropeECSA L-Class service. The

rotation of this service will be shortened with calls at Rotterdam, Thamesport and Bremerhaven being discontinued, and the new rotation becoming Algeciras, Dakar, Montevideo, Itajai, Paranagua, Rio Grande, Santos, and back to Algeciras. This will effectively offer three weekly sailings from ECSA to Europe.

The West Africa connection via the port of Walvis Bay, meantime, will have the alternative of sailing transhipment on the weekly Middle East-SA (Mesa) service. This has a port rotation of: Durban, Cape Town, Salalah, Jebel Ali and Nhava Sheva. Walvis Bay-bound cargo will be routed by a feeder service from Durban.

Transnet accuses insiders of misleading allegations By Alan Peat The board of the parastatal transport group, Transnet, has accused what it terms an “anti-Transnet” brigade in its staff contingent of misleading the press over allegations of a “R5.4-bn

cover-up” carried by a national newspaper group. In turn, Transnet acting-chairman, Geoff Everingham, accused the anonymous internal whistleblowers of issuing incomplete and sometimes “doctored” documentation

and “misrepresenting the true situation”. “Based on the inaccuracies in the article,” he said, “it is clear that there is a well-orchestrated campaign being mounted by anonymous employee(s) to bring the company into

disrepute. This appears to be part of a campaign to discredit company processes, including its internal audit function, and divert the public’s attention from the conduct of some individuals. “The board will continue

to uphold the highest standards of corporate governance in line with leading practice. To this effect, we will investigate and take action against any Transnet employees who do not uphold these standards.”

‘Security 108 needs stricter policing’ By Alan Peat There is still some controversy over whether the recently introduced air cargo security legislation, Part 108, is working as was hoped for – designed as it is to implement as near watertight security as possible. Alwyn Rautenbach, MD of Airlink Cargo, is brief and to-the-point. “Part 108 started off very smoothly,” he said, speaking from an airline point of view. “There was a slight initial problem with the documentation for ‘known’ and ‘unknown’ customers. But, since that has been sorted out, everything has gone well. “The industry has adapted to it without any complaint.” But there’s an opposite point of view expressed by Bob Garbett, MD of Professional Risk and

Asset Management. It’s still not doing its job, he told FTW. First he pointed out that it is estimated that there are over 500 forwarding/courier agents (including branches) in South Africa. There are certainly many thousands of consignors using air cargo services (domestic, regional and international). “Why then,” Garbett asked, “are there only 150 forwarding/courier agents registered with the SA Civil Aviation Authority (Sacaa) and less than 50 consignors? The answer is that air cargo security is still not being taken seriously and is not being sufficiently enforced by the Sacaa.” The authority has stated on a number of occasions that it intends to police the air cargo industry more stringently. “But,” retorted Garbett, “so far, we do not see this happening.” He described it as

Part 108 is designed to protect carriers ... they should be actively and energetically discouraging the tendering of unknown cargo.

“ironic” that the Part 108 system, designed to protect the carriers, is being bypassed by certain air carriers, and, he insisted, the integrated process ignored. “These carriers, sometimes represented by their handling agents, are not actively and energetically discouraging the tendering of unknown

cargo,” he added. “It is the air carriers who should be promoting the integrated process which is the lifeblood of Part 108. “The opposite is, unfortunately, often true. ‘Send us your cargo’ they say – ‘let us make it known on your behalf’. Certain handling agents and forwarding organisations, have adopted the

same approach. “This is both reckless and shortsighted, the consequences of which could be tragic.” With the conditions laid down in liability insurance policies, Garbett noted, if there was an incident, the results could well be catastrophic for an air carrier or forwarding organisation.

Fewer company closures another good sign for economy BY Alan Peat There is another sign that the SA economy is escaping from the recession, and times are getting better for industry and commerce in general, according to Luke Doig, senior economist at Credit Guarantee Insurance Corporation (CGIC). “The October 2009 closures of companies and closed corporations fell 17.5%, which extends the positive trend witnessed

over the past few months,” he told FTW. “This with the three month period to October 2009 exhibiting a 13.4% fall in the number of failed companies, compared to the three months ended July 2009. “This amelioration has brought the year-to-date increase, compared to the first ten months of 2008, to 20.3%, which is substantially down on the 47% higher level recorded comparing the first quarter

of 2009 to the first quarter of 2008.” From a sectoral point of view: manufacturing showed a 35.3% improvement, with 11 failures in October 2009 compared to the previous year’s level of 17; construction was flat with 24 liquidations; wholesale and retail experienced 29% fewer closures (80 vs 113 a year earlier); and financing, insurance and business services exhibited an 18.7% recovery (150 down to 122).

‘Still a long road out of the recession – Ramos Best insurance is a robust economy By Liesl Venter The South African recession may be over, but there is still a long road to go before the country can claim to be completely free of the aftereffects, said Maria Ramos, group chief executive of the Absa Group and a member of the executive committee of Barclays PLC. Delivering the final lecture in the 2009 Wits Graduate School of Public and Development Management public lecture series last week, Ramos said the human cost of the recession, which is costing the world trillions of dollars, had been extremely high, especially in South Africa where further unemployment can hardly be afforded. “Long after the stock markets have recovered, we

will continue to see the real economy, particularly when it comes to jobs, lag behind. Across the world millions of jobs have been lost, and rising unemployment in our own country continues to be a challenge.” Speaking about the global financial crisis and its impact on the world, Ramos said as poverty in developing countries increased, it was imperative for South Africa to achieve economic stability and growth. “We did not have a Great Depression, but there is no doubt that this crisis was very deep, and that there is still a long road out of this recession. The G20 have announced some tough new regulations in an effort to prevent another global crisis. This, of course, includes some new financial

regulations that will ensure that a reckless few can no longer put the global financial system at risk.” But, said Ramos, it is imperative that the details of these new regulations such as the specifics of what capital banks must hold be determined sooner rather than later. “The devil is often in the detail and we need to know where we are heading in the future. In South Africa we have taken a number of measures – not just those from the G20 – that have impacted positively, like the National Credit Act, which with 20-20 hindsight of course prevented South Africans from falling deeper into debt. But we are still highly in debt. More than 130 000 South Africans are still receiving debt counselling.”

Maria Ramos ... ‘Rising unemployment in our own country continues to be a challenge.’

Ramos said while there were far more questions and challenges facing not just South Africa but the world at present, the best insurance against any crisis of this nature was to build a

Packaging specialist rises to the challenge Gas-to-liquid plant ready for export thanks to Cratelogic By Alan Peat In a massive prepare, protect and pack job, packaging specialist Cratelogic has just finished a four and a half month contract to get a Richards Bay-manufactured gas-toliquid plant ready for export. Cratelogic MD Ryan James agreed that it was “quite a big thing” – and added that it was 18 different modules with an average individual weight of 50 tonnes. “Each of these modules was about 700-cubic metres in size,” he told FTW. “The majority of them comprised pipework and vessels and everything had to be protected before the loading could start. All of it had to be sprayed with a specialised rustpreventative primer; then we had to seal and blank

FTW1729SD

off pipe ends and plastic wrap them.” And, alongside these individual modules of equipment, the company also had to strip off any sensitive parts or units and containerise them separately, after the appropriate contact preservation had been conducted. “This is the fourth similar job we’ve done,” said James. “Previously we’ve crated the units. But this time we didn’t because of the sensitivity of the units and environmental problems at the other end related to the wood used for crating.” The company started the job in June, and, apart from arranged breaks in the work schedule, were on-site for the whole period until end-November. Although Cratelogic is Johannesburg-based, the company can effectively

put a work crew on site anywhere in South Africa, said James. “And, for consignments that we can handle here at our head office premises,” he added, “we have a 1 700-m 2 warehouse where we can crate, pack and secure cargoes into containers as required.” And the size of any consignment doesn’t matter. Said James: “If we get it, we can pack it – everything from a small picture frame to a 75-ton motor.”

Sizeable project … 18 different modules with an average individual weight of 50 tonnes were packed at Richards Bay.

Avocado exporters record ‘reasonable’ year By James Hall Wheels were rolling at predicted levels to export this year’s avocados, including tankers that transport 12% of the harvest in the form of processed oil. A season that concluded two weeks earlier than expected ended up splitting the difference between the original crop estimate by the Avocado Growers’ Association of 9.5m 4-kg cartons and a revised estimate of 10m cartons. 9.77m cartons were exported, bearing 39m tonnes of fruit. “Our estimates were reasonable, and this allowed for growers and transporters to anticipate logistic needs,” Derek Donkin, CEO for the Tzaneen-based growers’ association, told FTW. “Prices fluctuated, though. It’s not possible to get a contract that sets a price through the entire season. Prices were strong at the start of the season because of frost

damage to crops in Israel and Chile. SA’s main avocado export rival, Peru, estimated a large ’09 crop, and we factored that in. But the Peruvian avocados were shipped all at once instead of throughout the season, and this led to a glut and a price drop. It would have FTW1756SD

been better if they had shipped steadily through the season. But prices stabilised later,” Donkin said. Transporters hired by growers and their agents hauled an average year’s crop, Donkin said, coming off an impressive 2008 performance that saw 12.6m cartons shipped.

‘Expect demand to firm at end of first quarter next year’ Glimmer of hope – but times are still tough By Alan Peat All the indicators of the state of health of the SA economy are beginning to look encouraging, but how long between the signs being right and cargo volumes and money beginning to flow into the freight industry? The first signal that raised a glass or two in celebration was the SA Reserve Bank (SARB) composite lead indicator – which indicated that SA’s economic recovery remained on track. The index, which signals growth 6 to 12 months down the line, rose for the sixth month in a row to 114.6 in September from a trough of 105.3 in March. This was soon followed by more good news – as the revised and re-based gross domestic product (GDP) statistics revealed that the economy had exited the first

FTW1865SD

recession in 17 years in the third quarter. It advanced by 0.9% quarter-on-quarter and followed three consecutive quarters of contraction – bringing the year-to-date growth in the economy to -1.8%. Next up from the SARB was the announcement of the inflation rate, and it equally raised a few “cheers”. The inflation measure, the consumer price index (CPI), dropped to 5.9% in October from 6.1% in September – the first inflation target-friendly reading since March 2007. This was soon followed by one of the driving factors behind CPI movement, the producer price index (PPI) – with producer inflation easing slowly back to still-negative growth of -3.3% in October from -3.7% in September. A trend that economists in general think will persist for

the rest of this year and into early next. So the signs are looking a bit better, but when will this result in an upturn in cargo volumes for users and members of the freight industry? Speak to Luke Doig, senior economist for investment and economic services at Credit Guarantee Insurance Corporation (CGIC), and he’ll tell you that he doesn’t see volumes firming very much in the remaining days of 2009. “We’ll probably only see firm demand towards the end of the first quarter of next year.” But there’s “no doubt we’ve turned the corner”, he added, reminding us that he’d predicted back in July that an upturn in the fourth quarter – as expressed to FTW by optimistic soothsayers in the industry – was a “definite possibility”.

Duncan Bonnett ...‘US data still weak.’

Although slightly more cautious about the “when”, Andre Erasmus, senior manager of finance and trade consultants, Deloitte, agreed with the imminence of an upturn.

“If you look at things like the exchange rate and interest rates, they’re where you’d usually expect them to be before we see growth,” he told FTW. “We’ll definitely see an

upturn next year, certainly from the time of the World Cup (June, 2010) if not before.” Duncan Bonnett, partner in trade consultancy Whitehouse & Associates, has some reservations.

“Asia is already picking up, with the demand for commodities, for example, increasing,” he said. “So it’s already starting there.” But in more global terms, things are not quite so bright.

“If you look at the US, their recent economic data is still a bit weak,” said Bonnett, “and that’s only expected to recover into next year. “So it’s hard to say what the SA lag time will be.” Also a bit of a yes and no about the upturn amongst our forwarding industry commentators. As far as Roland Raath, MD of clearing and forwarding agents Cargocare Freight Services is concerned, his worries about the downturn have been minimal. “We’ve had a good year,” he said, “and this has been an extra-good month. So we’ve been somewhat insulated. “But anyone who’s getting excited is going to have to watch. There could be a bit of pre-Christmas enthusiasm, but this may fade later. “This November/December were surprisingly active, so we can hope that this will continue.”

Meantime, Eric GowerWinter, MD of Barloworld Logistics, is a bit more pessimistic in his crystal-ball gazing. “We see 2010 as a fairly flat year,” he told FTW, “and expect that things will only start to pick up a bit in 2011. “But one thing’s for sure. The heydays of the past will not happen again.” Perishables haven’t been so sensitive to the downturn either, according to Mike Froy, MD of perishable export specialists, Grindrod PCA. “I must be perfectly honest,”

he said. “We have not been as badly hit as the general market.” An advantage for perishables, he added, is that they are low-priced commodities, so are less affected by a consumer cash shortage, and there is less lead time between the signs being right, and a recovery in off-take. It’s an essentially more gloomy forecast from Carol Graham, SA marketing manager of the giant carcarrier, Hoëgh Autoliner. In their big ships, shipping lines have a massive capital investment looking for a return, and extremely large operating costs. It takes some time for any increase to start having a beneficial effect on their bottom lines. “It’s probably going to be 6 to 12 months before we start seeing the benefits,” she told FTW.

Restructuring must make a difference to our customers – TPT By Ray Smuts The huge transformation under way at Transnet Port Terminals is not about short-fix cosmetic solutions, but rather a permanent resolve to improve operational processes, a path Siya Mhlaluka has trodden before. “It’s not about personalities per se but

we realised we had to be realistic that our customer requirements had changed so this restructuring process can only make a positive impact,” says TPT’s divisional executive manager for the containe r sector. Alluding to a recent meeting with Volkswagen SA, a major customer and regular user of Cape Town Container Terminal,

Mhlaluka said the restructuring had to make a difference to its customers. He recalls collaborating with new Cape Town terminal executive, Moshe Motlohi, on the merger of the Port Elizabeth multipurpose and container terminals. “It was a painful process, so we have gone this route before.” Part of the strategy team working toward

implementing the new dispensation, he says: “I was also part of deciding who goes where, based on individual capabilities, but supported the view we needed to change.”

Siya Mhlaluka … change was needed.

NPA will accommodate ‘soccer’ vessels at repair quay By Ray Smuts The National Ports Authority, not exactly renowned for scoring consistently high brownie points with cruise line shipping operators, is intent on putting its best foot forward in support of that particular sector during World Cup 2010. The authority’s view on

affording the industry a place in the sun by providing all the necessary in-port mod cons for high-paying passengers is on record – it’s not Transnet’s duty to incur such a massive investment for what is at best a seasonal business. Last week, however, NPA Cape Town made clear it would do whatever possible to support vessels calling at

the Mother City port for the mammoth event. It is official that Holland America Line will dispatch two massive ships with a combined passenger and crew complement of some 6 000 to call at Cape Town between June 9 and July 12. The sisterships MS Noordam and MS Westerdam are of 82 500grt, more than 300

metres long, and will be accommodated at the repair quay. NPA Cape Town communications manager, Coen Birkenstock, tells FTW special land arrangements are planned to make passenger access and departure as smooth as possible. Contrary to many predictions, the soccer

extravaganza is not going to make South Africa rich, say leading sports economists Stefan Szymanski and Simon Kuper. They point out former host countries, such as Germany, were organised, with existing infrastructure in place, whereas South Africa had to virtually start from scratch to create stadia and other necessities.

Barloworld accorded ‘elite’ status By Alan Peat A logistics company has now joined the rather elite few road transporters who can trade with road transport management system (RTMS) status, according to Jose da Silva, project manager of Barloworld Logistics. This industry-led selfregulation scheme, he told FTW, encourages operators in the road logistics value chain to implement a vehicle management system that preserves road infrastructure, improves road safety and increases productivity. “Previously,” he added, “this certification had been confined to transport operators in the sugar and timber industries. “Certification is granted separately for each route and type of operation as well as the specific trucks and

trailers being utilised. It is self-regulatory, but subject to monitoring by the authorities.” The Barloworld Logistics operation which merited this qualification is the now five-year-old contract with Toyota, delivering automotive components from suppliers in Gauteng to the Toyota SA manufacturing plant in Prospecton, near Durban. “We have now transported more than 11 000 loads from Gauteng to Durban and have had only one serious accident in five years,” said Da Silva. “This I attribute to our disciplined control of the fleet and our drivers through our sophisticated fleet management programmes.” Through this, Barloworld Logistics becomes the first general freight carrier in SA to be awarded such self-regulating status, he added.

SYNERGY FREIGHT ACQUIRES AMERFORD/KREW LOGISTICS Whilst fully expecting a tough year ahead, Synergy Freight’s Shareholders decided to use the time effectively by consolidating its position and strengthening its foundations placing it in a position to take advantage of the future upswing in the economy. The acquisition of Amerford t/a Krew Logistics was one step closer to galvanizing the company’s growth and leveraging opportunities which traditionally present themselves in tough trading climates. A further benefit was the acquisition included a fully functional Cape Town office staffed by experienced people providing close personal attention to detail and service to clients. Staff in Durban and Johannesburg will be accommodated in our existing facilities. The traditional Clearing & Forwarding business is further

complemented by strengthening Overseas Forwarding volumes and entering the Ship’s Agency division, a new string to our bow. Complementing the entire package is Nozala Investments, who own 26% of our shares and together with our other B-BBEE initiatives have assisted us to obtain an ABVA rated Level 2 accreditation status. Service orientated priorities have remained a key focus for our 13 years of trading; Synergy is ready to optimize its position in Durban/ Johannesburg and Cape Town. MD, Trevor Wishart is very optimistic about Synergy Freight’s future and hinted that due to its future plans the company will become an even greater force in the industry in the near to medium term. Our strategic commodity is impeccable service delivery “success together with and alike”.

Swazi downpours cause R50m road damage By James Hall MBABANE - Continuous rains not seen in Swaziland in 25 years have left a waterlogged road system and extensive infrastructure damage. Transportation and Public

Works Minister Nthuthuko Dlamini told FTW that a week of persistent downpours had caused R50m in damages to roads and highways, and destroyed 19 bridges. The network of rural roads needed by farmers to bring

their crops to market has been severely compromised, the minister said. "The assessment teams have so far reported that a number of road signs nationally have been damaged. Gravel and tarred roads, bridges and

low level crossings have all been affected and will require urgent attention," Dlamini said. However, he said only R2 million was available for infrastructure repair. The minister said he would ask parliament for

emergency funding. Side rails have collapsed along the newly opened highway from the Oshoek border post to Mbabane, prompting some observers to suggest that original construction may have been poor.

Heavyweight operator! Nothing is too heavy for Abnormal Load Engineering (ALE) – moving a gas turbine or a transformer for a nuclear power station is all in a days work. Established in 1983 to provide an engineering service to manufacturers of electrical plant and utility companies involved in the movement and ALE Heavylift SA recently successfully loaded, transported and offloaded an ASD 3211 tug in Cape Town harbour.

Headquarted in the UK, the company has offices throughout the world including South Africa. In Durban ALE Heavylift SA recently jacked up, transported and jacked down the first of seven tugs in the Port of Durban. The 825 Te tug was transported from the

manufacturer’s warehouse onto a submersible dock. Another recent success involved the loading, transporting and offloading of an ASD 3211 tug at the Cape Town harbour. The 32.5m long, 11.2m wide and 16.2m high tug, weighing around 460 tons, was moved without incident or lost time.

Political tension is growing between the US and the rest of the world over the use of force against pirates. More US-flagged ships are using armed guards, with the blessing of both the navy and the federal government, which is strongly discouraged by most other members of the International Maritime Organisation. Following an attack on the US-flagged Maersk Alabama, in which armed guards on the ship returned fire and repelled the attack, a US admiral said. “This is a great example of how merchant mariners can take proactive action to prevent being attacked.” The Alabama was hijacked earlier this year but retaken by the crew. US Navy marksmen later shot dead the pirates who were holding the captain hostage. In sharp contrast to the gung-ho US policy, the IMO urges caution. "Flag states should strongly discourage the carrying and use of firearms by seafarers for personal protection or for the protection of a ship. Carriage of arms on board ship

may encourage attackers to carry firearms or even more dangerous weapons, thereby escalating an already dangerous situation. Any firearm on board may itself become an attractive target for an attacker. "The use of privately contracted armed security personnel on board ships may lead to an escalation of violence. The carriage of such personnel and their weapons is subject to flag State legislation and policies." The IMO is working on the Djibouti Code of Conduct, which it says "aims to establish a cooperation framework that would include information-sharing between regional states and prosecution of suspected pirates." A US security and legal specialist, Dennis Bryant, says ships could take more defensive measures without using armed guards. "The use of lookouts must be increased. There is no reason that pirates should be able to board a ship undetected in high-risk waters such as the Gulf of Aden. If this requires the ship to carry more than the usual number of crew, so be it."

New executive commits to solving CT’s problems By Ray Smuts Moshe Motlohi is not about to deliver a prognosis without an examination - but the newly appointed terminal executive for Cape Town’s combined container and multi-purpose terminals is clearly under no illusion as to what lies at the heart of the problem. As serving business unit executive for Durban Container Terminal since early 2007, he is able to share with customers the ‘pain’ of port disruption from construction and inclement weather. And a carbon copy scenario is assured when he assumes

duties as terminal executive in the Mother City port on January 1. His is clearly a reasoned approach – how to best come up with the necessary answers, but in order to do so, a first “look-see” is mandatory. “We have to look at what we have and what we should have, examine the gap between the two and work toward migrating where we should be. “We should have good, continuous feedback from customers. They need to be happy with us and we should take pride in creating value for them.” Motlohi believes the concept

of merging terminals, as will be the case in Richards Bay and Durban, makes sound business sense. “The logic is to improve utilisation of Transnet Port Terminals’ assets and to ensure we give of our best.” He also assures whatever negative perceptions may exist about Cape Town Container Terminal will enjoy his undivided attention “because that is where it is all going to start.” Motlohi well understands customer frustration, sketching by way of example a vessel diverted at the 11th hour from one terminal to another.

Moses Motlohi ... ‘We should have good, continuous feedback from customers.’

The new dispensation is intent on putting paid to such aggravation, bureaucracy and inconvenience through a single, combined staff complement of about 1 000 people. At the time of his interview with FTW on November 27,

Motlohi had not yet engaged with his new staff but expects to do so at three sessions in early December. As to achievements in Durban, he says: “When I got there the terminal was doing 18 moves per crane per hour but we were up to 24 at the end of the previous (2008) financial year. “We also managed one of the biggest re-engineering projects within TPT, working with foreign (Sri Lankan) skills, a delicate one just to manage that environment to make sure the different cultures come together.”

From teaching to terminal head Born in the small Eastern Cape town of Barkly East, one of nine children, Moshe Motlohi’s first name is Sotho for Moses, as it is in Hebrew. He started working life as a teacher in the then Transkei,

later becoming involved in local affairs and being elected mayor of Ugie for three years. He then joined SA Breweries as an operational trainee, serving in various capacities before an approach

by Siya Mhlaluka, TPT’s divisional executive manager for the container sector, to become chief operations manager in Port Elizabeth. Ten months later he was sent to Durban Container

Your logistics needs managed from A-Z

Terminal to become involved in certain operational issues, and was promoted to chief operations manager and business unit executive 18 months later. The term business unit

executive is being replaced by that of terminal executive. Married with four children, Motlohi is currently finalising his MBA thesis on increasing operational port capacity.

Matrics learn about shipping thanks to joint sponsorship

Understanding shipping … learners from Sithengile Secondary School aboard a Jo Tanker vessel in the Port of Durban.

By Liesl Venter At Sithengile Secondary School there are ten learners who really do understand shipping. The school, situated some 20km inland from Durban in an extremely impoverished area, saw ten of its learners sponsored to participate in a part-time adult learning course aptly titled “Understanding Shipping”. The ten were required to independently submit and pass nine assignments on various aspects of shipping. This was in addition to their

normal final year school work. Following a final oral exam, five of the students were handed certificates while five were given letters of recommendation. “This is an outstanding achievement if you take into consideration that they were busy with their matric while doing this course,” said spokesman for Jo Tankers, sponsors of the ten students. “Many of the students are also the breadwinners for their families and work as well.” Jo Tankers, in partnership

with the South African branch of the Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers (ICS), decided to sponsor the “Understanding Shipping” course in an effort to encourage young people to choose the shipping industry as a career. “The students were also given the opportunity to visit one of the Jo Tanker vessels in the Port of Durban. This gave them an idea of what happens on a real ship and added to the course as it offered some much needed practical experience,” said the spokesman. In order to encourage the school’s efforts in maritime teaching Jo Tankers along with the Grindrod Group and other sponsors have also recently built a brand new “maritime classroom” and computer centre for the school. According to the spokesman, due to the success of the programme, the company has decided to sponsor ten more learners next year to do the same course.

Doing business in Africa is often fraught with risk, but being fellow-African holds an advantage, says Western Cape entrepreneur, Frank Land. “African countries would prefer to develop business links with South Africa and keep the business in Africa, if reliability of supply, competitive pricing and client relationships are a critical part of the marketing campaign,” says Land, co-founder of award-winning, The Invisible Card Company. In a joint presentation with partner and fellow director, Nico Smuts, to Cape exporters recently, they encouraged members to have an open mind and look past the inherent problems in the African market and to focus on the opportunities. The Somerset Westbased private company specialises in the manufacture and export of a range of secure printed paper products containing variable data such as pin numbers on scratch cards

complement of more than 150 and sales of between R50 and R70 million a year, around 95% exported. The early initiative of attending an exporting course at the Cape Regional Chamber gave the team a feel of what needed to be done. “We quickly learned about the vagaries of cross-border trade and the risks involved,” said Smuts. “Exports were critical to us from start-up, not an “add-on” or “nice to have”, and we adopted a holistic approach to co-ordinating marketing and production.” Smuts adds the reason why so few South African companies have entered into similar ventures is because The Invisible Card Company’s products demand exacting standards. Land explains the thinking behind the company’s name is partly because it prints secure data and also because it wanted to remain “below the radar” of competitors at that time.

Williams also stressed that Maersk’s extensive global scheduling supported the international breakbulk market.

20 | FRIDAY December 11 2009

Abnormal transporters hit out at ‘unfair’ proposals ‘Restricting freedom to optimise vehicle usage’ By Alan Peat The latest draft of the technical recommendations for highways (TRH11) contradicts regulations in the National Road Traffic Act, 1996, and remains an on-going argument between abnormal vehicle operators and the department of transport and provincial authorities, according to Carl Webb, MD of abnormal and project transport specialists, Project Logistics Management. He also accused this new version of restricting the abnormal carriers’ freedom to optimise their vehicle usage. The argument started when the new TRH11 – compiled by the CSIR and approved by the abnormal load technical committee of the DoT/ provincial authorities – first became public. “When the draft was discussed with the transport industry, a number of issues

were raised,” Webb told FTW. “But all of these concerns were either ignored or over-ridden.” This frustrating situation, he added, destroyed a lot of the planning done by the abnormal carriers over a

‘The new proposed legislation says that no abnormal permits will be granted for the transportation of containers on abnormal vehicle (AV) registered equipment.’ lengthy period. “The industry over the years has, in conjunction with the TRH11, designed vehicles that accommodate the recommendations of the guideline – yet are still flexible enough to be viable. “The idea was to optimise vehicle utilisation, so you get laden trips both ways.”

That, the truckers argued, led to fewer vehicles on the road, and allowed the abnormal carriers to remain competitive – with benefits for the SA economy. But the latest version of the TRH11 doesn’t want to see abnormal vehicles carrying ordinary, containerised cargo, according to Webb, and is designed to protect normal carriers. The new proposed legislation says that no abnormal permits will be granted for the transportation of containers on abnormal vehicle (AV) registered equipment. In fact, no equipment will be eligible for registration as an abnormal if fitted with container locks. And the current legislation expressly forbids containers from being transported, unless the vehicle is fitted with four working container locks. “All this,” Webb added, “means that we will see these abnormal vehicles – say on the Johannesburg to Durban run – having to travel empty, and running alongside full, normal container carriers. “This makes no sense whatsoever, as it is no financial advantage for AVs, only helps in optimising their usage.” The AV fraternity is, therefore, appealing to the various provincial traffic authorities, which can override the TRH11 – and which is, said Webb, not a legislative document, but merely a “guideline” for the authorities.

Hi-cube hijack? From page 1 “Further,” the letter told the minister, “we were told that a consultant would have to be appointed to study this issue before a final decision to change legislation would be undertaken (since suspended due to budgetary constraints). “Subsequent to this, new legislation proposed for the TRH 11, is that NO abnormal permits would be granted for the transportation of containers on abnormal vehicle (AV) registered equipment. In fact, no equipment would be eligible for registration as an abnormal if fitted with container locks.” This added further complications to an already troublesome situation – because current legislation expressly forbids containers to be transported, unless the vehicle is fitted with four, working container locks. A final compounding factor has now come into play, according to the truckers in the harbour carriers’ association.

“It has come to our attention that the DoT has instructed all its provincial branches to start to implement the law as it now stands,” Martin said. “Vehicles are being fined and impounded and instructed to remove the container onto a legal trailer. “But, to all intents and purposes, these do not exist on SA roads – especially due to the TRH 11 ruling. This rules out low-bed type trailers, which are in the main AV registered equipment.” It’s an especially troublesome situation for SA’s major port city of Durban – with the container terminal in the port being the largest in the southern hemisphere. Hoping that the minister of transport will be able to rectify this monstrous problem, the Durban harbour carriers have “respectfully requested” that he reinstate the moratorium “as a matter of urgency until the way forward can be arrived at”.
