Transmar, Egypt’s one of the leading container shipping lines, has strengthened its presence across the Middle East and East African routes using the Port of Adabiya, strategically located on the western shore of the Gulf of Suez, about 10 km south of Suez
Regarded as the jewel in the logistics crown due to its high levels of service and congestion-free operation, the port has become the focal point of Transmar’s operations to service its UAE, Saudi Arabia and East African clients. This is mainly because of its location and facilities which include a free zone area of about 62 feddans overlooking Suez bay coast. The port is also very crucial for palm oil imports into Egypt.
According to Mohamed El Ahwal, CEO of Transmar, the company is looking to increase its supply chain offerings.
“With nine berths and the ability to handle dry and liquid bulk cargo vessels, it offers our clients the best supply chain operation into and out of Egypt for Middle East, Red Sea, Arabian Gulf and East African operations,” Ahwal added.
“Transmar has embarked on an investment strategy to develop our container shipping services and we are greatly encouraged by the investment scheduled for the port that will create additional terminals to handle dry bulks, liquid bulk, general cargo and even more container traffic.”
“Congestion can cause serious financial and scheduling implications for goods such as fresh fruits and dairy products. Using Adabiya as our base reduces these risks and enables Transmar to offer a service that guarantees a smoother and more efficient way to keep the supply chain running. We will be increasing our operations in the region to meet growing demands and using Adabiya means we will continue to offer round the clock effective solutions for every Transmar client,” he further noted.
