A Freight and Logistics hub in the Vaal Region 4 Dec 2014

The pursuit of the development of a Freight and Logistics hub in the Vaal Region took a huge step forward when a high level delegation of government and business met in Three Rivers , Vereeniging today. Led by the Executive Mayor of the Sedibeng District and the MEC for Roads and Transport in the Gauteng Province, captains of industry, academics and members of the Mayors Investment Council exchanged views on the feasibility and impact of a Freight and Logistics hub in the region. Sedibeng’s Local Municipalities, Emfuleni, Midvaal and Lesedi were also in attendance to add to the discussions.

After frank exchanges on the subject, the meeting resolved to reconvene in a working session in January 2015 to examine all the research papers and available data which would contribute to a fully-fledged feasibility study. The working session, which will be convened under the auspices of Sedibeng District Municipality and the Provincial Department of Roads and Transport, will work with the business sector in developing a feasibility study. Strong arguments have been made for the Gauteng Province to advance the timeline for Freight and Logistics hub in the Vaal Region. If the feasibility study confirms the need, support of industry  and sustainability, the Gauteng Provincial Government will review its timeframes that could see the development of a Freight and Logistics hub sooner rather than later in the Vaal Region.
