We start today with some pride that Exporters Western Cape was the last public hosts of Andre de Ruyter prior to his untimely departure from Eskom – what an honour this was!
Our thoughts are with Andre and wish him well in his future endeavours – we do hope he returns to SA as our country cannot afford to lose such persons of integrity, openness & honesty.
This has been cause to reflect on how EWC is becoming the voice of the export industry, our weekly engagements with the Port are bearing fruit as we need transparency to move forward,
Within the next few days, I will be making press releases as to how we can resolve the current impasse we are facing – we must address these as a matter of urgency.
On the portside, the week of 13- 20th February was a difficult one with the wind impacting the terminals with gusto! Not been able to work for 4 out of the 7 days.
However, last Sunday when the wind subsided, CTCT had 2598 moves and MPT managed 1989 moves for the week, out of a target of 1500m, so there is light at the end of the tunnel.
Night runs increased to 17% which is good to see, although still more use should be made of Belcon, when CTCT goes windbound.
Again, FPT had a good week and quietly remain our shining light!
Enjoy Formula- E this weekend as the Mother City shows off her beauty!
See you on Wednesday at our February/March function!
