South African ports are soon to become "smartports" with the installation of a web-based integrated management system that will tell clients when and where their vessels have berthed.

The system went live at the Port of Durban at the weekend and will be implemented in South Africa’s seven other ports before the end of the year.
Transnet National Port Authority said the system, which will cost R79-million, will provide information on maritime operations and logistics such as the availability of marine pilots and tugs.

It will be available as a smartphone and tablet app, and will replace a manual tracking system notorious for reams of paperwork.

AN R8bn automotive parts supplier park is on the cards for Durban, and the KwaZulu-Natal government has given assurances that it is "all systems go for the investment".

Economic development MEC Mike Mabuyakhulu said the automotive supplier park was one of the province’s biggest projects.

"It is huge for us. There are still issues to be finalised but we already have investment to the value of R8bn," Mr Mabuyakhulu said. Construction would begin in about 2019.

Unlike Gauteng and the Eastern Cape, which host manufacturers BMW, Nissan, Mercedes-Benz, Volkswagen and General Motors, among others, KwaZulu-Natal does not have a supplier park. Toyota, one of the biggest vehicle manufacturers, which employs 6,500 workers and produces 220,000 units a year, is based in the province.
