Our History

Transnet understands the importance of investing in sustainable heritage preservation and actively tries to lead by example. This is hugely rewarding and enables us to leave a priceless legacy. With a rich railway history of over 150 years, Transnet has established two transport museums in South Africa showcasing a variety of locomotives and other historical lifestyle items

It is globally acknowledged that the sustainable preservation of a country’s heritage is possible only when the corporate companies act as responsible corporate citizens. This means companies should consider and report on their triple bottom-line performance – economic, environmental and social impact. Transnet achieves this through a strategic, impact-driven Heritage Asset Management Strategy. As a state-owned company, we believe we must lead by example and set the standard for communities in protecting our country’s rich heritage
