Industrial development zone company the Coega Development Corporation (CDC) has announced that its Customs Control Area (CCA) Warehouse is open for short-term rental.

The Trade Facilitation Unit (TFU) brings together Customs, Investor Services and Logistics, and Warehousing into a holistic trade facilitation focal area within the Coega Special Economic Zone (SEZ).

The Coega CCA Warehouse offers general storage space for businesses across the region, as well as SEZ investors that require storage and warehousing space prior to freight distribution. The CCA Warehouse has the capacity to store abnormal cargo, with an abnormal laydown area adjacent to the CCA Warehouse.

The 3 600 m2 warehousing facility offers unpacking and repacking of cargo, cross docking, regional deliveries and cargo storage.

The facility has 1 200 m2 of hardstand space for the storing of containers and cargo, equipped with a 3.5 t forklift and 45 t reach stacker; a warehouse management system used for the tracking and storing of goods; 24/7 security with full closed-circuit television coverage and armed response, as well as perimeter fencing.

"The added cost-saving advantage of the facility is its 1 km proximity and direct access to the deepwater Port of Ngqura, equipped to handle a combined capacity of more than two-million twenty-foot equivalent containers a year. The Port boasts seven berths, four container terminals, two dry bulk terminals and a liquid bulk terminal.

The facility also grants clients easy access to rail, road, and air travel as well as integrated logistics services.

Further, based on its location in the heart of a fully functional plug and play SEZ, the Coega CCA Warehouse is built on world-class infrastructure, including roads, bulk water and sewer networks, telecommunication sleeve networks, high- and medium-voltage electrical substations and overhead power lines.

"The CDC, as operator of the Coega SEZ, works on the principle that trade facilitation measures are not the responsibility of a single government department, but should permeate the focus of all organisations with an interest in trade.

"The CDC addresses the challenge of facilitating trade through focussing on areas such as customs, environmental compliance, infrastructural services, investor services, logistics, security and spatial planning," the corporation says.
