The 4th annual Global Ports Forum Awards held in February 2018 in Dubai saw Richards Bay firmly in the spotlight.

It is South Africa’s leading port in terms of cargo volumes, handling 99.2 million tons and 2 000 vessel arrivals recently. TNPA Chief Operating Officer, Phyllis Difeto, a highly qualified advocate who has been COO of TNPA since 2014, clinched the award for Woman of the Year in Ports and Terminals.
