Despite being at the mercy of economic uncertainty, compounded by sometimes heavily fluctuating commodity prices, State-owned rail transport company Transnet Freight Rail (TFR) has identified itself as a key economic enabler that aims to boost the South African economy by trying to unlock areas of potential in support of domestic and export markets, while waiting in the wings for an uptick in the mining sector. “We are supporting the country’s rail logistics customers by ensuring that we improve efficiencies and concentrate on optimising the entire value chain,” notes TFR capital planning GM Brian Monakali in an interview with Mining Weekly. Monakali makes it clear that the rail utility is poised for growth and ready to serve its client, which includes the mining industry, by pacing rail capacity expansions in line with market demand.
