Reading Time: 1 minute

A South African Transnet National Ports Authority (TNPA) delegation paid a benchmarking visit to the Kenya Ports Authority in the spirit of regional cooperation.

The team, keen to exchange useful ideas and insights on port operations and management, toured the Port of Mombasa as part of the learning initiative and collaboration with Kenya Ports Authority (KPA) in the shipping and logistics industry.

TNPA operates the ports of Richards Bay, Durban, East London, Port Elizabeth, Ngqura, Mossel Bay, Cape Town and Saldanha in South Africa. Operations cover import and exports across cargo sectors of containers, mineral bulk, agricultural bulk and Ro-Ro.

The delegation was led by TNPA's Managing Executive Western Region, Ms. Phyllis Difeto. They encouraged KPA and other members of the Port Management Association of Eastern and Southern Africa (PMAESA) to join the ongoing efforts to re-energize the association.

PMAESA Secretary General Col. Andre Ciseau, who accompanied the visitors, said that plans are underway to re-look at PMAESA and stakeholder engagement to consolidate its strategy for 2023-2027.

"I wish to express our sincere appreciation to KPA as the host of PMAESA since 1973," Ciseau.
