South Africa Freight Transport Report Q1 2015

BMI View: BMI maintains a cautiously optimistic stance on South Africa's freight transport sector in 2015.

Although there are risks to the mining sector from a potential hard landing in China, we believe that growthin the mining industry will continue, which bodes well for the rail and port sectors. However, imports ofcontainerised goods could struggle to maintain volumes as unemployment rises.

South Africa registered an increase of 7.5% year-on-year (y-o-y) in freight volumes in September 2014,according to Statistics South Africa, based on a preliminary land transport survey. Income registered anincrease of 12.3% . During Q314 the income from freight transportation rose by 9.5% year-on-year (y-o-y),with mining, quarrying, agriculture and forestry key contributors to this rise. These dynamics will continueto support growth in freight transport volumes in 2015.
