We want to provide you with an update regarding the arrival of our products on our shipments still due to arrive.
Regrettably, we have been facing unexpected delays in our shipments, and we understand the inconvenience this may have caused you. The initial delays were averaging between 14-16 days due to various factors impacting the port terminal in Durban.
The vessels arriving into Durban are maintaining their schedules; however, the port terminal is currently experiencing a backlog situation. This backlog is attributed to adverse weather conditions, terminal equipment breakdowns, and operational challenges.
An additional update on the current situation reveals that there are currently 96 vessels waiting at anchor outside South Africa ports. The congestion is a result of a combination of poor weather affecting operations and ports operator issues. Furthermore, Transnet, the port authority, is experiencing challenges with equipment, contributing to the delays.
As a result of these challenges, Durban is currently experiencing delays of up to 30 days from vessel arrival. We have been informed that Transnet has implemented a recovery plan to address these delays.
Based on the latest information, we anticipate a significant improvement and recovery in the situation around the end of December. However, Transnet has advised that delays throughout the port are likely to persist into the 1st quarter of 2024.
We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this situation may have caused, and we appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate through these challenges.
