KZN Growth Fund - Dube TradePort


Dube TradePort Corporation, a business entity of the KwaZulu-Natal Provincial Government, is charged with the responsibility to develop the province’s biggest infrastructural development. Considered one of South Africa’s top 10 investment opportunities, this recently named Industrial Development Zone is geared to promote foreign and local investment.

Home to King Shaka International Airport, this master-planned, worldclass passenger and airfreight hub occupies a 2 840 hectare greenfield site, 30 km north of Durban. Dube TradePort is set to become a highly competitive business-operating environment and forms the heart of the emerging Aerotropolis: KZN.

The first purpose-built aerotropolis in Africa and destined to become a premier business and trade hub, Aerotropolis: KZN’s coastal location makes logistics a cost-effective proposition. Dube TradePort’s air logistics platform together with burgeoning seaport infrastructure, access to numerous global destinations and linkages to SADC countries, combine to position KwaZulu-Natal as a key business point in South and southern Africa.
