Agency Managing Director, Lindsay Leppan said, “Y&R Durban has become synonymous with servicing retail and FMCG brands, so this win is significant as it opens doors to a new industry category. The win of this account affords us the opportunity to exercise our expertise across the client’s diverse employee profile. Over the past six years, we’ve evolved into, what can now be described as a fully-fledged through-the-line agency and we look forward to demonstrating that through this partnership.”

Transnet Port Terminals is one of five operating divisions of Transnet SOC Limited, South Africa’s state-owned freight transport and handling company. Y&R will be servicing 13 terminals across seven South African ports, namely Richards Bay, Durban, East London, Ngqura, Port Elizabeth, Cape Town and Saldanha.
