Food and fuel shortages have been reported in some parts of the country and while the Banking Association says there's no need to panic - some ATMs are still cashless.
This, as the more than 20 000 truck drivers' strike continues. Talks between the union and employer are expected to resume on Wednesday.
Workers gathered again in the Johannesburg CBD to get feedback from union leaders.
Two weeks into the strike and there are growing signs that it has impacted, with ATMs running out of cash being evidence of that. In the Johannesburg CBD, many people were left fuming as they attempted to draw cash as the new month begins and people have bills to be paid. But the Banking Association insists there is no need to panic.
The company says it will remain shut until the strike is over
Fuel shortages are also being reported in some areas of KwaZulu-Natal and the worst hit areas are Durban, Umhlanga, Ballito and Pinetown.
Production has come to halt at the country's largest sugar producers, as more than 600 trucks service both TSB in Malelane and Komati mills on a daily basis.
TSB Corporate Affairs Manager Vusi Khoza says: “I suppose the biggest impact is not so much the financial one, it's really about the service to the market. We are doing our best to make sure that the market does not run out of sugar. But, if we do not do something urgently to resolve the situation, our sugar supplies could run out in the market.”
The company says it will remain shut until the strike is over.
