South Africa’s logistics firm Transnet announced on Tuesday that it had suspended operations at some ports due to strong winds and waves affecting parts of the country. According to Reuters, the coastal regions, particularly the Western Cape, have faced disruptive rains and violent winds since Sunday. Transnet, already dealing with port backlogs from under-investment in equipment and maintenance, said operations at four of its seven ports—Cape Town, Saldanha, Port Elizabeth, and Ngqura—have been impacted by the bad weather.
