The Transport Evolution series of events bring together transport authorities (port, rail and road) from across the African continent, as well as public and private sector industry experts with the purpose of identifying opportunities, understanding challenges, finding solutions and ultimately doing business.

Our events are hosted in each country by that particular port and rail authority. The flagship event, Transport Evolution Africa Forum & Expo is hosted in Durban, South Africa, 21-22 September 2021. Transnet SOC which includes Transnet National Ports Authority, Transnet Port Terminals, Transnet Freight Rail and Transnet Engineering, own and operate the port and rail systems in South Africa. Any company both local and international seeking to do business in South Africa, would need to meet with senior officials from Transnet. It so happens that Transport Evolution Africa is hosted, sponsored and attended by the CEO’s and other decision makers from the various Transnet divisions. The attached article outlines that despite the effects of COVID-19 on the transport sector in South Africa, the outlook for 2021 and beyond is positive and Transnet aims to develop and upgrade new and existing transport nodes which will all require investment as well as services and solutions.
