With Dube TradePort and Richards Bay earmarked for large-scale industrial development and the Tshiame IDZ located at Harrismith, in addition to Dube TradePort to be transformed in special economic activity zones, renting industrial property in the region will mean having the right address for imports, exports, and logistics.
