The distance around the Port from one side to the other is 21km and 57 berths are provided in addition to those for repairs and fishing vessels. It is operated by the National Ports Authority (NPA). Approximately a third of all ships calling at South African ports are routed via Durban Port and facilities include numerous cargo terminals as well as a passenger terminal.
