Unrest in South Africa - Impact on Shipments

The arrest of South Africa’s former president Jacob Zuma for contempt of court last week has seen growing disturbances across the country as a result.

Across the Western Cape, Gauteng and KwaZulu-Natal, banks, shops, malls and some of South Africa’s largest corporations have closed as a result with online orders/deliveries also impacted. Truck deliveries have been affected by looting and increasing violence.
The South African national defence force has been called in to restore stability. Airports and ports are open, but delays are expected due to security concerns - all office and the majority of other staff members are working from home and freight will only be moved if considered safe to do so.

We will continue to monitor the situation and update you accordingly.
If you have any concerns about your shipments, please get in touch with your local Woodland representative or contact us here.
