Genesis was retained as part of a consortium of firms providing transaction advisory services to the Free State Department of Police, Roads and Transport for the development of the Harrismith Logistics Hub, an inland intermodal freight terminal with value-added logistics services. 

The project concept worked on a ‘hub-and-spoke’ principle, where containers are received from various origins by road or rail to the central hub, and distributed to the destinations, usually by road. 

Benefits accrue to all parties by offering consolidation services for both imports and exports, as well as utilising the unit or block train concept, which streamlines the rail transport side significantly.
