The Port of Richards Bay (Port Code: ZARCB) is a deep-water seaport located in Richards Bay on the Indian Ocean coast of South Africa. It contains the Richards Bay Coal Terminal (RBCT) which is the largest coal export facility in Africa. Although originally built to handle coal exports, the port has become South Africa's premier bulk port, handling other dry bulk in addition to coal, as well as liquid bulk and breakbulk cargoes. It is also South Africa's most modern port. There are 13 berths and more than 1000 employees at the harbor. The terminal now exports over 30 varied commodities from magnetite to ferrochrome, woodchips to aluminium and steel. This mainly to the United Kingdom, United States of America, India, the Middle and Far East and Pacific Rim countries like China and Japan. Over 15 imported commodities including sulphur, coking coal and alumina go through the port annually from countries like Australia, Canada and West African countries like Togo.
