A LOGISTICS hub 10km outside of Harrismith has received Cabinet’s nod of approval.

Minister in the Presidency for Planning Monitoring and Evaluation, Jeff Radebe, said Cabinet had ratified the decision to designate the Maluti-A-Phofung Industrial Development Zone (MAP IDZ) at Tshiame, near Harrismith in the Free State.

Cabinet also approved the granting of an operator permit for the zone to the Free State Development Corporation.

The focus will be on the automotive, light manufacturing, agro-processing and distribution logistics sectors.
