CareersTransnet is a focussed and integrated freight transport company which is essentially driven by five operating divisions Transnet freight rail, Transnet engineering, Transnet national ports authority, Transnet port terminals, Transnet pipelines and specialist units (Transnet Capital Projects and Transnet Property).
