Dube TradePort Masterplan

Dube TradePort Master Plan Precinct Map


As a long-term, master planned freight and passenger logistics hub, Dube TradePort - located just 30 km north of the seaport city of Durban - is rapidly emerging as a vital global supply link and trade centre for KwaZulu-Natal.

Strategically located and surrounding King Shaka International Airport, Dube TradePort is Africa's first purpose-planned airport city and Southern Africa's premier air logistics platform.

This new, master planned business environment is designed to be a globally competitive, multi-modal trade gateway to South and Southern Africa... and the world.

The Dube TradePort precinct includes:

  • Dube City: A world-class business and leisure area providing for a mix of hotel, conference, entertainment, retail and knowledge-intensive activities;
  • Dube Cargo Terminal: A state-of-the-art cargo facility, and one of the most secure in Africa, providing direct airside access;
  • Dube TradeZone: A new-generation warehousing, manufacturing, assembling real estate resource, complete with a single facility in which all freight forwarders and shippers are located (Dube TradeHouse), which enjoys a direct link to the adjacent Dube Cargo Terminal via an elevated cargo conveyor system;
  • Dube AgriZone: A high-tech, future farming facility and host to the continent's largest climate-controlled growing area under glass; and
  • Dube iConnect: A world-class IT and telecommunications platform digitally linking precinct-based businesses and operations with each other and the rest of the world.

The various Dube TradePort precinct areas combine to re-invent the way of doing business.

This is an airport city facilitating new global business and trade opportunities for the benefit of both the local and international business community.
