BUSA yesterday [18 January 2022] requested Minister Mbalula to urgently consider reviewing Regulation 224 (b) of the National Road Traffic Act (Act 93 of 1996) that currently prohibits the transportation on South African roads of high cube containers. High cube containers constitute the overwhelming majority of containers currently manufactured and transported internationally (including in neighbouring states). However, the combined height of a vehicle transporting a high cube container is currently 4.6m – 300mm above the legal limit. Despite several years of industry engaging the Department of Transport on the matter, as well as moratoriums being issued, no progress has yet been forthcoming on fundamentally resolving the issue.
