Its IT systems were disrupted on Thursday, halting key operations at the state-owned freight rail and logistics company.

Transnet spokesperson Ayanda Shezi says some applications may continue to run slowly over the next few days, while monitoring continues.

“All operating systems will be brought back in a staggered manner, to minimise further risks and interruptions. At the ports, each container terminal has communicated its transition plan from manual operation to the full NAVIS-driven operation.”

Shezi says the force majeure, communicated to customers on Monday, is expected to be lifted soon.

“The business continuity plans have enabled Transnet Freight Rail to continue utilising manual backup operations, and run trains as planned. 

We wish to assure stakeholders and customers that all processes followed allow for the safe operation of trains.”
