Transnet Freight Rail (TFR) moved a record 1.05-million tons of manganese in May – a new monthly record – as a result of an improvement in operational efficiencies and an upturn in market conditions. “The record-breaking performance is due to a significant improvement in efficiencies across the channels, which was driven by the introduction of new locomotives, among other things. The introduction of the new fleet improved traction effort, efficiency and reliability, while using fewer locomotives,” TFR stated in a media release on Wednesday.
