Types of Tenders offered by Transnet

transnet-1

Well, well, well, just look at this, my second blog 🙂 (Pat on the back for me). I am excited and nervous at the same time, but let me take a deep breath…relax…and do this. This month I will be chatting about the types of Tenders that are offered by Transnet. OK, this can’t be that bad a topic, can it? I mean, it’s just Transnet right? This will be a quick one, phew, definitely relaxed now, easy peasy lemon squeezy. With my fingers doing the walking I search for the Tenders offered by Transnet on our awesome website, and low and behold, there they are…wait…what!? This can’t be right, looking at the screen with wide eyes and slowly but surely starting to hyperventilate, I begin to realize that this is not going to be as easy as I thought. Upon my lovely search I discovered that we have housed a whopping number of 13 030 Tender Notices for Transnet so far. Breathe…Breathe….Breathe…ok, I am running for the hills! Goodbye….

Ok ok ok, I am back from Bora Bora with a new mindset about this blog, I can do this. Where were we? O yes, that’s right, 13 030 Tender Notices are housed by L2B to date, but what can you expect from the largest and most crucial part of the freight logistics chain that delivers goods to each and every South African through its pipelines and both to and from its ports? Moving cargo onto ships for export while it unloads goods from overseas. So, lets dig a little deeper shall we? Transnet operates an integrated freight transport, formed around a core of five, yes five, operating divisions that complement each other (which we will look at shortly). These are supported by a number of company-wide specialist functions such as Transnet Projects which underpin the group as a whole.

Transnet is made up of the following operating divisions:

 

  1. Transnet Freight Rail (formerly Spoornet – the freight rail division)
  2. Transnet Rail Engineering (formerly Transwerk – the rolling stock maintenance business)
  3. Transnet National Ports Authority (formerly the NPA – fulfills the landlord function for South Africa’s port system)
  4. Transnet Port Terminals (formerly SAPO – managing port and cargo terminal operations in the nation’s leading ports), and
  5. Transnet Pipelines (formerly Petronet – the fuel and gas pipeline business, pumps and manages the storage of petroleum and gas products through its network of high-pressure, long distance pipelines)

 

Here are just a few of the Tenders that Transnet offers:

With a variety of Facilities Management, Electrical & Instrument, Plant & Machinery, Mechanical, Materials & Supplies, Infrastructure, Security & Fire, IT & Telecom and plenty more, you can see that Transnet offers a tender for each and everyone, which is only a click away on our website 🙂 www.l2b.co.za

City of Johannesburg, future outlook, where are we going/growing?

City of Johannesburg, future outlook, where are we going/growing?

I always believe that in order to know where you are going you have to know where you are from, I personally think that applies to every aspect in our lives including where we live. So when I was asked to write about the future of our beloved City of Gold, the thought occurred to me that it would be pretty amazing to see where it all began, like a newborn on a journey through life.

Johannesburg was founded in 1886 as a result of the discovery of gold, which rapidly attracted people to the area and within 10 years the city Johannesburg included 100 000 people.  Like many 19th century mining towns, Johannesburg was a rough and disorganised place and major building developments only took place in the 1930s. By the late 1960’s and early 1970’s tower blocks such as Carlton Centre and the Southern Life Centre filled the skyline of the Central Business District. Sandton City was opened in 1973, followed by Rosebank Mall in 1976 and Eastgate in 1979. Johannesburg kept on evolving and is now home to some of Africa’s tallest structures such as Sentech Tower and Ponte City Apartments.

Johannesburg is often described as Africa’s economic powerhouse, and contentiously as a modern and prosperous African City. Johannesburg like many metropolises has more than one CBD including but not limited to Sandton CBD, Rosebank CBD and Roodepoort CBD, just to mention a few.

Just have a look at the amazing evolution of Johannesburg:

With an ever evolving city, what does the future hold for Jozi?

  • The Kazerne Intermodel Transport Facility : Construction is underway on a world-class intermodal transport facility which will transform the commuter environment in Johannesburg’s CBD, creating a clean, safe, welcoming place for residents, commuters, tourists and investors in the heart of the inner city.

( PPA 16631 )

  • The Illovo Precinct : The precinct will have various components including office and commercial, hotel and conferencing, residential 1, residential 3 and retail.

( PPA 8548, PPA 8549, PPA 8550, PPA 8551, PPA 8553 )

  • NMT Milpark Precinct : Construction of the Milpark Precinct non-motorised transport implementation development in Milpark, Gauteng.

( PPA 18328 )

  • Riversands Commercial Park : Riversands offers a variety of commercial precincts – allowing for retail, office, warehousing and light industrial business premises. Riversands Commercial Park is set to become the preferred commercial development in Northern Johannesburg

( PPA 17864, PPA 17865, PPA 17866, PPA 17867 )

 

With a short insight into the future of Jozi, the place of Gold as we know it, is one of the top places to be, see and experience. Our very own “Big Apple” as you may say.  A World Class African City of the Future.
