Looters hit stranded trucks waiting to get to Durban Port—

The Mariannhill Toll Plaza has a backlog of 10km all the way to Hammarsdale and according to the Road Traffic Inspectorate, local communities are now looting the trucks

Access roads around the Port have been damaged, with container yards, truck depots and trucks themselves caught in the flood damage.

“The area is really a disaster at the moment,” said the association’s Gavin Kelly.

“Logistics operations will be impacted and there will be delivery disruptions for goods being imported,” said Kelly.

The association is advising members to delay any departures towards Durban, and to find depots and safe parking areas along the way.

“Where possible, members have been requested to assist one another to get any vehicles off the road and to secure holding areas until the logistics chain is up and running again.”
