To fulfil its dedication of supporting local communities, the Grindrod terminals and stevedoring teams (HR, SHERQ, Operations, and Procurement departments) collaborated to distribute care packages in response to the recent fire incident at NCT woodchip mill in Richards Bay which is near the Grindrod Terminal operations.
Firefighters battled the blaze, which continued to intensify since it started on September 30, 2023, until it was brought under control on October 7, 2023.
On October 5, 2023, Grindrod staff delivered care packages containing water, Powerade, chocolates, and food bags to the 200-plus courageous men and women battling the persistent fire. The nourishing food provided vital energy as the firefighters continued their relentless efforts to contain the ongoing fire.
Grindrod continues to touch the lives of communities in which it operates.
