1910. Mr K S Mubu (DA) to ask the Minister of Public Enterprises:
Whether, in light of the plans to promote rail freight as opposed to road freight, Transnet has implemented any measures to mitigate potential job losses within the road freight industry; if not, why not; if so, what measures?    NW2299E
Reply:

According to Transnet, its plans relate to improving the freight logistics supply chain and increasing the use of rail to transport commodities that are rail friendly Transnet is not aware of any plans of the road freight operators to reduce their employee numbers. Transnet’s R300bn capital investment programme is however expected to create more jobs.
