  • Year: 2022
  • Author(s): Max Smeiman, Nomsa Maseko, Garth Strachan

This brief is based on the findings of a Transnet Rail Rolling Stock Localisation Study that had the following goals: To undertake an applied, independent, quantitative and qualitative research exercise to describe the prevailing economic and rail sector context; to map and analyse the existing domestic rail supply chain; to identify those issues that constrain Transnet’s localisation programme; and to make recommendations to support a more robust Transnet localisation effort in its rail rolling stock maintenance programme.

The brief  highlights the key research findings and recommendations of the study, and should not be considered exhaustive. It contains non-confidential information based on the full report that was commissioned by Transnet.
