Gauteng Chapter

The Gauteng Province is the largest inland port of South Africa.  It is the heart of business and industry.  Whilst Gauteng’s history lies embedded in the discovery of gold, today Gauteng not only has one of the best infrastructures, but its population of over 12 million people form part of a vibrant mix of energy and diversity that make it one of the wealthiest provinces in Africa, and the entertainment epicentre of South Africa.

The O.R. Tambo International Airport (ORTIA) in Johannesburg is the air transport hub of Southern Africa, accounting for 340,000 tons annually.  The rail mode handled 72 million tonnes of freight, consisting mainly of block train consignments of primary minerals such as ores and coal, and primary and secondary commodities.
