Freight data: Import Throughput
The Freight Demand Model is developed by the Growth and Intelligence Network (GAIN) and provides import and export flows for the whole of South Africa on a magisterial district level.
This data was filtered by GAIN to suit this particular MFA. It provides data on four flows:
- Leaving (commodities leaving the area)
- Arriving (commodities entering the area)
- IntraExport (commodities entering the area only to exit it again to be exported through the port of Cape Town)
- IntraImport (commodities being imported through the port of Cape Town only to exit directly to other destinations in South Africa)
This particular dataset contains the Imports into Cape Town that then leave the city right away (IntraExport).
The flows contain data from all magisterial district in Cape Town, excluding the Malmesbury district. This district is partly inside the Cape Town municipality, and partly outside the Cape Town municipality. In terms of imports and exports it is of a small size and it is therefore excluded from this dataset.
Data is owned by GAIN and must be obtained from them. Once obtained, the only work to do is to classify each material group.
