Introducing Dube TradeZone 2

... Meeting exceptional investor demand

Dube TradePort Special Economic Zone offers the business community globally integrated logistics and manufacturing infrastructure in a highly competitive 'Greenfield' business operating environment covering more than 3 800 hectares (38 million square metres), just 30km north of Durban.

The precinct, comprising a 50-year, master-planned airfreight and passenger hub, consists of four business zones and a telecommunications platform, Dube iConnect:

  • Dube TradeZone is an industrial area for electronics, pharmaceutical and aerospace manufacturing;
  • Dube Cargo Terminal is a state-of-the-art air cargo handling facility;
  • Dube AgriZone is an advanced agricultural precinct;
  • Dube City is a business and hospitality precinct;


  • Dube iConnect is a cutting-edge telecommunications platform and premier cloud service provider.

Dube TradeZone 1, an advanced export environment comprising premium, fully-serviced industrial real estate 26 hectares in extent, is fully leased and tenanted by business enterprises focusing on air-related logistics, distribution and light manufacturing.

Positioned within this zone is Dube TradeHouse, a dedicated facility in which freight forwarders and shippers are located and which offers integrated warehousing and office space, together with airside access via an overhead conveyor airbridge to the adjacent, state-of-the-art Dube Cargo Terminal.

The exceptional demand for industrial space here has triggered phase two development.

Dube TradeZone 2... Now Open for Applications:

In order to meet unmatched demand for business real estate immediately adjacent to King Shaka International Airport, Dube TradePort Corporation, a Public Entity of the KwaZulu-Natal Provincial Government and tasked with the development of the precinct, is set now to expand its trade zone operations.

It is poised to bring on-stream Dube TradeZone 2, creating an additional 43 hectares of industrial space for the development of a further 23 sites. These fully-serviced, levelled sites range in size from 3 000m2 to 57 000m2 with utilities provided to boundary lines.

Dube TradeZone 2 will centre on, especially, developing a pharmaceuticals cluster, revolving around production and distribution, as well as the supply of common utilities and services for key industries. It will also enable the planned expansion of a number of phase one-based enterprises.

The advent of the new industrial complex is garnering an encouraging level of interest from the investor community and Dube TradePort Corporation is confident about converting such interest into actual investments, attracting, particularly - though not exclusively - investors from the pharmaceutical and medical environment, as well as players involved in the electronics manufacturing and assembly, aerospace and aviation-linked manufacturing, automotive, clothing and textiles, logistics and high value manufacturing environments.

Dube TradePort Special Economic Zone comprises extremely efficient infrastructure, provides seamless support services and brings to the fore a range of available incentives, all combining to give businesses an appreciable competitive edge.

Strategically positioned at the intersection of local and global intermodal transport routes, the precinct is seamlessly integrated with intermodal road, rail and port infrastructure. This will provide manufacturers and exporters located within Dube TradeZone 2 with exceptional supply chain efficiencies and market access, coupled with the advantages of business agility and speed to market.

Dube TradeZone 2 is positioned to enable locating business enterprises to profit from their investment here, so growing their own global competitiveness.
