here are the Full year 2011 Stats for all South African Ports

CARGO HANDLED BY TONNES during 2011

PORT | 2011 million tons | 2010 million tons
Richards Bay | 86.627 | 85.466
Durban | 80.764 | 76.120
Saldanha Bay | 59.697 | 53.789
Cape Town | 13.875 | 13.239
Port Elizabeth | 11.864 | 11.080
Ngqura | 7.112 | 4.795
Mossel Bay | 1.923 | 1.834
East London | 2.607 | 2.463

Total all ports | 264.469mt | 246.787mt


CONTAINERS (measured by TEUs) during 2011
(TEUs include Deepsea, Coastal, Transship and empty containers all subject to being invoiced by NPA


PORT | 2011 TEUs | 2010 TEUs
Durban | 2,712,975 | 2,553,392
Cape Town | 755,306 | 708,526
Port Elizabeth 326,313 325,212
Ngqura | 523,597 | 348,811
East London | 56,060 | 52,956
Richards Bay | 18,540 | 23,578

Total all ports | 4,392,791 TEUs | 4,012,475 TEUs
I thought Richards bay and Durban were one thing, as in, Richards bay being a harbor in Durban.

The Port of Richards Bay's Coal Terminal is the world's biggest, with capacity to handle 91 million tons per year.


[IMG]http://i50.************/3020w84.jpg[/IMG]

Richards Bay is SA's premier bulk port and the most modern. Although built in 1976 for the export of coal, it has since expanded into other bulk and breakbulk cargoes.

In 2010 the port handled 84.937 million tonnes of cargo. A far cry from the unimpressed view expressed by Commissioner Henry Cloete in 1843, when he surveyed the Mhlatuze estuary and declared it to have little or no potential as a future harbour.


Situated at Longitude 32º 02' E and Latitude 28º 48' S, Richards Bay, South Africa's most northernmost and easterly port, is 87 nautical miles (160 km) northeast of Durban and 252 n.miles (465 km) southwest of Maputo.

Quick question; so does the port handle 91 mil tons or does it just have the capacity to handle 90 mi? I noted the statement said "with capacity to handle" so I guess what am asking is; it might have the capacity but does it handle that much?

The 91 million is the nameplate capacity, the actual exports are not close to the official capacity, in the last year coal exports from Richards Bay were around 68 million tons, the main bottleneck is the railway from the coalfields.

So am guessing the chart above is quite outdated.

Mombasa handled 823,313 TEUs from January to November this year, up 12.3% from the same period in 2013.

So for 2014, Mombasa is expected to handle over 1 million TEUs.

the tiny little port of Luanda is one of busiest in Africa? if that's true is a shame. but I can give luanda a pass because there are other major ports near Luanda. what's the excuse for other cities?

+1

So there seem be great competition for the 1st place iside the actual podium and more competitiion for the 4th place (en red).


P.S. IMO Tangier Med I reached its max capacity, it will no be 1st in 2014 noor in 2015, this year the 1st container port will be egyptian and tonnage volumes will still be south african.

Perhaps Tangier will reach Port Said & Durban volumes many years later when all phases of The new Tangier Med II port ( 5 Millions TEUs) will be finished.

Phase 1 of Tangier Med II (2.2 Millions TEUs) is Ready for 2015, instead of launching Phase 2 for Tangier Med II soon Morocco seems to launch construction of the Nador Wes Med first :

Nador West Med (3+2 Millions TEUs Expected for 2018).



IMO Moroccan and egyptian ports are surely helped for the volumes of traffic through Suez & Gibraltar but they have big spanish, Turkish and Italian competitors things not existent for south african ports :

I think Abidjan may well still be one of the biggest in terms of CAPACITY. It once was the busiest port in WA
