Transnet: Maritime masters in the making

2008-09-24 00:00

Darren Fraser (left), Sabelo Nxele (centre) and Andrew Sibinda, three young employees of Transnet Port Terminals in Durban, have left for Belgium to begin Master of Science studies in maritime and transport management at the University of Antwerp’s Institute of Transport and Maritime Management (ITMAA).

The three are among the latest group of high-potential maritime and freight industry employees from across the globe who will converge on ITMAA’s campus to begin the intensive eight-month academic programme.

The specialist masters programme provides participants with world-class knowledge and best practices that can be applied in their native port environments. More and more South African representatives of companies like Transnet are beginning to benefit from a strategic partnership that has been in place with the Belgian Consulate, the Flemish government, their associates and South Africa for 12 years, providing bursaries to develop the human capital of the country’s freight, logistics and transport industries.
