Operations Update after Durban Floods

Dear Valued Customers,

As you are aware, Durban has had some extremely heavy rainfalls in the days gone past which has led to severe flooding. We extend our heartfelt condolences to those whose families have suffered loss and homes been destroyed. All MACS KZN staff are safe and accounted for and will be working tirelessly to make sure we can limit any delays and resume business as usual.

Landside operations at Maydon Wharf are open and business will continue as per normal, there may be slight delays due to any blockages/damages that need to be cleared. The progress will be monitored and if there are any foreseeable delays notice will be sent out promptly.

Unfortunately most depots have been hit quite hard and there is a substantial amount of risk & damage assessment that needs to be carried out.

Kings Rest Bay Head is currently closed and no containers are being released/received. Kings Rest Clairwood is open and currently releasing containers, pending availability of empties. OACL depot (MRD) were impacted from the flooding and as such have closed, however the stack dates for the Bright Sky V2159 have been extended and OACL (MRD) have started accepting containers as of today, Tuesday 19th April.

We thank you in advance for your patience and understanding as we all work through this difficult period.

To all of you and your families, be safe.
