The multi-purpose terminal in Alexandria port
The port of Alexandria is one of the leading ports in Egypt in terms of commercial traffic. About 60% of Egypt’s foreign trade is passing through it.
The new multi-purpose terminal is developed over an area of 560,000 m², in the historical seaport of Alexandria. It comprises the construction of quay wall fully equipped to accommodate large container vessels: 2480-meter length of berths, 17-meter water depth allowing the handling capacity to increase from 15 to 18 million tons per year, and the record-handling of 1 250 000 containers.
This terminal increases Alexandria port classification which will have a positive effect in maritime transport system.
