Whilst there is no maritime port in the Limpopo province, it is of importance to note the fright impact that the maritime ports have with regards to freight movement. The Maritime sector serves as a strategic freight-logistics platform earmarked to facilitate trade (i.e. import and export of goods) of high volume and tonnage cargoes for regional and national economic growth. Transnet National Ports Authority of South Africa (TNPA) -a subsidiary of Transnet is the landlord authority of the eight commercial ports; and is responsible for the spatial and infrastructural planning, provision and day-to-day management of the ports on behalf of the State as charged under the National Ports Act (Act No. 12). Transnet Port Terminals (another Transnet subsidiary) is responsible for cargo operations from ship to shore as the main terminal operator in the ports.
