Thursday, May 10, 2012
Sanjay Govan, who is the Port Manager at the Port of Cape Town, will head the Tariffs portfolio effective immediately.

State-owned freight and logistics group Transnet’s Market Demand Strategy (MDS), that forms part of the R300 billion capital investment programme over seven years was announced in March this year. This strategy will have a massive impact on the growth of the TNPA however there is also a need for significant changes to realize it’s growth aspirations i.e. Capital planning and execution, Operational effectiveness and productivity, Target volumes and customer satisfaction, Regulator and stakeholder engagement, Financial sustainability and Safety.
Tau Morwe, Chief Executive of TNPA said: “Finalizing Tariff Methodology and Pricing strategy with the Ports Regulator, implementing agreements and licences for all port services and facilities and creating oversight capacity to drive port compliance forms parts of the Regulator and stakeholder engagement programme.
“To deliver on this function TNPA found the need to identify a competent and highly skilled individual.”
Port tariff is high on the countries agenda, as such President Jacob Zuma acknowledge this in his recent state of the nation address, when he pledged to implement policies to cut the cost of doing business in SA.
It is for this reason that TNPA is announcing the redeployment of Sanjay Govan who is the Port Manager at the Port of Cape Town to head the Tariffs portfolio with immediate effect. Sanjay will in the interim be caretaker whilst TNPA is finalizing the appointment of the Port Manager for the Port of Cape Town.
“ I would like to thank Sanjay for doing a good job over the past 11 years and wish him well in his new job,” said Morwe.
