​North-East Corridor

            

Overview 

Mineral Mining and ChromeThe North-East corridor (NEC) consists of two (2) clusters namely the Beitbridge, Polokwane, Phalaborwa cluster which supports Limpopo, and the Witbank to Komatipoort cluster which supports Mpumalanga.

 



The corridor stretches from Limpopo River at Beitbridge in the Limpopo province through Komatipoort down to Richards Bay on the East coast and;

from Pyramid/Witbank (Rayton) to Komatipoort.

This corridor strategically links the South African freight business with that of other SADC countries mainly through Swaziland, Zimbabwe, Maputo, Zambia, and the DRC.

Commodities are transported via various border posts or gates of entry such as Komatipoort, Golela, Beitbridge, Livingstone, and Sakania.

The corridor has three prominent linear flows (Pit to Port) and are defined as follows:

• Phalaborwa to Maputo and Richards Bay, mainly transporting Magnetite and Rock Phosphate.

• Witbank to Maputo, mainly transporting Chrome and Coal.

• Intermodal (Reefers) originating from Tzaneen, Musina and Bela Bela destined for Durban.

Strengths within the Corridor are good rail connectivity with sub-Saharan Africa, enabling operational integration; and collaboration across Transnet Operating Divisions improving service on integrated pit-to-port flow.
