Strategy and resource allocation


Strategic planning  

Transnet’s strategic planning framework drives capacity planning at five levels, each with its unique context and planning requirements. Overall, planning is aligned across the different levels and geared towards the same outcomes.

While each level addresses capacity planning differently, efforts are fundamentally aligned and geared towards the same objectives.
