Zeerust – The Federation of East and Southern African Road Transport Associations (Fesarta) has reported that the truck park at Zeerust on the Platinum Highway going onto the Trans-Kalahari Corridor in Botswana has been closed (*)
The closure this morning comes on the back of a positive Covid-19 confirmation.
The closure is expected to have an impact on freight passing through the Skilpadshek border between South Africa and Botswana.
This story will be updated as more information is received.
* Since this story was posted yesterday, Freight News has learned that the situation that apparently affected Skilpadshek was not related to Covid-19. A source from the clearing industry alluded to municipal protest action being responsible for any issues that might have had an impact on the border.
