Dube TradePort's
Cosmopolitan Business Environment

Dube City

As South Africa’s premier airport city, Dube TradePort is a prime location for businesses that benefit from proximity to King Shaka International Airport. Some of these, such as freight forwarders and manufacturers, benefit directly from access to the airport and to Dube Cargo Terminal; others, such as those in the hospitality industry, derive their benefit from the ease of access for international travellers.

The real estate available at Dube TradePort falls into two categories (excluding specialist agricultural areas):

Dube City is purpose-designed for office, retail, hospitality, and leisure. Dube City is just three minutes from the airport, and offers fully-serviced facilities as well as full connectivity with Dube iConnect. Dube TradePort Corporation is currently developing a double-storey underground parking structure adjacent to their head office, 29° South, to support a three-phase office, hotel and commercial development, as well as an additional multi-storey parkade.

Dube TradeZone, by contrast, is designed for light manufacturing, assembly, and warehousing. As part of the Dube TradePort Industrial Development Zone, certain businesses in Dube TradeZone are eligible for fiscal, tax, and customs benefits. These benefits are geared towards promoting business growth, revenue generation, job creation, and the attraction of both foreign and local investment into the province.

Dube TradePort’s unique offering is part of a global trend towards mixed-use developments, where different types of business are brought together by a common need – in this case, proximity to King Shaka International Airport. It’s the future of development, and Dube TradePort is leading the way.

 

Hazpak:
Moving Dangerous Goods Safely

The Hazpak Team

From cleaning to manufacturing, medicine to fuel, our daily lives are filled with potentially dangerous substances. It’s one thing to keep your bleach out of the reach of your children, but did you ever stop to think about what goes into moving these useful but dangerous materials around in large quantities?

Hazpak is KwaZulu-Natal’s leader in hazardous materials transport and packaging. “Our job is to make sure that dangerous goods can be moved safely and easily,” says Brian Fallis, Hazpak’s owner. “That means UN-approved packaging, documentation, careful labelling… and of course training in the handling of these dangerous goods.”

Training is an important part of Hazpak’s operations. Their courses are approved by the South African Civil Aviation Authority (SACAA) and the South African Maritime Safety Authority (SAMSA), and are attended by a wide range of industry professionals, from freight forwarders to warehouse staff.

Hazpak’s location at Dube TradePort puts the company at the centre of one of Africa’s most important import-export hubs. Dube TradePort’s position between two of South Africa’s busiest seaports at Durban and Richards Bay, coupled with the proximity of King Shaka International Airport, means that Hazpak is perfectly placed to service both national and international shippers.

“We’re seeing a dynamic expansion of Durban’s international connections, with new airlines flying out of King Shaka International Airport to the African continent, the Middle East, and beyond. The increase in exports is very exciting for us: not only will we be able to grow our own operations, but the training we provide will become more and more valuable as time goes on.”

Reaching Across the World Route Connectivity


We all know that exports are a good thing for South Africa: they attract foreign investment, pumping money into the economy and creating lasting benefits (such as jobs) for local communities. However, a lot of work has to go on behind the scenes before exports can happen, and not all of it is finding markets and transporting goods.

The South African government has worked hard to put a number of international agreements in place to facilitate international trade.

For example, the Southern African Customs Union (SACU) consists of Botswana, Lesotho, Namibia, Swaziland, and South Africa. Established in 1910 – which makes it the oldest customs union in the world – SACU has the goal (among others) of facilitating cross-border movement of goods between the member states. SACU has further trade agreements with other international associations, such as the European Free Trade Association, which consists of Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, and Switzerland, opening the way for international trade.

In another example, the African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA) is a United States trade act that aims at enhancing market access to the US for Sub-Saharan African countries. Through AGOA, South Africa has gained vital access to markets in North America.

Through international trade agreements and acts of legislation, governments worldwide pave the way for the import and export of goods. So when you next see a cargo ship in Durban harbour, or a plane taking off from King Shaka International Airport, consider the discussions, the signatures and handshakes that make it all possible.

 

 

Government Working for You

The KwaZulu-Natal Department of Economic Development, Tourism and Environmental Affairs (EDTEA) oversees KwaZulu-Natal’s socioeconomic transformation.

The department is responsible for leading the policy and strategic initiatives that promote the growth and development of various sectors of the economy. The department works with its social partners, including the private sector, civil society, and public entities, to deliver transformation.

A number of public entities fall under EDTEA’s purview, including communications, business development, tourism and leisure, trade and manufacturing. In each edition of this insert we will focus on some of these entities, and show how they bring value to the lives of South Africans, every day.
 

Moses Kotane Institute
Celebrates Six Years

Moses Kotane Institute (MKI) has made significant strides towards increasing KwaZulu-Natal’s Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) skills output. The institute is the brainchild of Dr Zweli Mkhize, Nqaba Ngcobo, and Phil Mjwara. It operates under the auspices of the KZN Department of Economic Development, Tourism and Environmental Affairs. MKI ensures that learners from disadvantaged backgrounds are afforded opportunities to develop the prerequisite skills in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics in order to support the economic transformation of South Africa.

Today Moses Kotane Institute celebrates its sixth birthday with the success story of Mbono Kwela. His journey with MKI started in 2010 when he was awarded a full scholarship from the institute. As a result he was subsequently placed in a top-performing Maths and Science high school. At the time Kwela was in grade 9 at Mqhele Secondary School in Claremont. Looking at his circumstances, getting a tertiary education was a distant dream. But today Kwela is set to become the first graduate from the institution’s high school group intake, earning his National Diploma in Building Sciences qualification.

Mr Sibusiso Mpungose, CEO of Moses Kotane Institute, has commended Kwela for all his hard work. “These students are our most valued assets, they are the reason for MKI’s existence and we are proud to have been part of this amazing journey.”
