Transnet's core mandate is to effectively manage the cost of doing business in South Africa, enable economic growth and enable security of supply through providing appropriate ports, rail and pipeline infrastructure as well as operations in a cost-effective and efficient manner, within global benchmarks.
Key to delivering on its core mandate is leveraging Private Sector Participations (PSP), which are premised on a diversified market approach that will unlock profitable and efficient supply chains. Transnet has adopted a segment strategy approach in response to socio-economic shifts and structural changes in the economy. This represents a fundamental change for the organisation, away from a divisional, modal service offering to strategic participations and structured collaborations in integrated commodity supply chains. The strategy will enable Transnet to participate in numerous integrated commodity value chains, and work together with the private sector to rethink, reimagine and grow Transnet's investment portfolio in a financially sustainable manner while unlocking new revenue streams.
Transnet is working with all stakeholders to ensure the success of its PSP rollout and is seeking partnerships to grow market share.
PSP models will be pursued where:
The required investments are either unaffordable to Transnet alone or are complementary to Transnet's strategy.
Transnet aims to unlock efficiencies through leveraging the private sector expertise; and
Business opportunities within ports, rail and pipelines are non-core to Transnet's operations.
