Force majeure invoked in South Africa by Linde plc member Afrox


Linde plc member Afrox has invoked force majeure notices following disruption of vehicle movement on the main N3 KZN (KwaZulu Natal) to Gauteng arterial highway in South Africa.

Liquefied natural gas products are included, with force majeure pertaining mainly to KZN and other inland provinces. This is due to closures along the N3 motorway and bulk tankers being unable to safely travel from the important terminal in Richards Bay.

Hard Goods are also affected, in particular where imports are via Durban. In addition to general road safety concerns, the N3 closure has affected transport by road to Afrox’s Gauteng distribution warehouse.
