    Equipment ensures plant efficiency

    Heavy machinery supplier BLT WORLD distributes and supports a range of materials and container handling equipment, designed for optimum efficiency, reduced operational costs, enhanced safety and minimal maintenance in automotive assembly plants. “Automotive manufacturers are continually looking for ways to improve efficiencies within their operations and one area where costs can be significantly reduced is well-organised materials handling. In automotive assembly plants, containers, components, engines and completed vehicles are moved from plant to plant and these distances often mean extensive travelling time for transport. This results in assembly delays and extensive wear and tear on conventional equipment, which negatively affects productivity,” says BLT WORLD MD Ken Mouritzen.

    Capacitate Sars, create green lanes for cargo at border posts

    South Africa’s logistics sector will operate more efficiently under an increasingly capacitated South African Revenue Service (Sars) rather than a Border Management Agency (BMA), as proposed by government, says South African Association of Freight Forwarders (SAAFF) chairperson Dr Juanita Maree. Maree says the current border release process is “very manual” when dealing with other government agencies – such as Port Health, the South African Police Service (Saps) and the Department of Agriculture, Land Reform and Rural Development – with a number of added potential hold-ups for cargo, such as the fact that Saps may decide to search a vehicle at the border post, or that cargo and people share a queue as they clear through the different border agencies.

    Ngqura Container Terminal mobilises to offload reefers in anticipation of citrus season

    With South Africa’s citrus season looming and a global shortage of mobile refrigerated shipping containers (otherwise known as reefers), the Ngqura Container Terminal (NCT), in Port Elizabeth, is mobilising offloading equipment to assist in the offloading of reefers that have been diverted by shipping company the Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC).

    NCT operator Transnet Port Terminals (TPT) has mobilised three ship-to-shore cranes, five rubber-tyred gantry cranes and three gangs to offload the MSC Altair of 1 995 empty reefers within 47 hours.

    Crucial component for new Airbus airliner completed and moved to final assembly facility

    The first centre wing box (CWB) for the Airbus A321XLR has been delivered to Hamburg, Germany, from Nantes, France, where it was assembled. The A321XLR is the latest version of the A320neo (for new engine option) family, a new-generation development of the company’s A320 single-aisle airliner family. XLR stands for extra long range, and the A321XLR will be the world’s longest-ranged single-aisle airliner. The Airbus facility at Nantes specialises in the production of CWBs, which form the structural ‘heart’ of an airframe. “The CWB is always the first major component on each new aircraft development to be produced so we must mature its design very early and manage its interdependencies with fuel systems, load calculations, as well as physical interfaces to the airframe aerostructure components developed in France, Germany and the UK,” jointly explained Integrated Product Team Nose & Forward Fuselage A321XLR programme leader Yannick Valette and CWB project leader Richard Hue.
