Egypt's Ports Situation Report
7 February 2011
Dear Valued Customer,
We are writing to inform you that Egypt’s ports have recommenced operations though at different levels of activity:
- Sokhna – full operation has been restored and there is no vessel berthing backlog.
- Damietta – full operation has been restored with some vessel berthing backlog.
- Port Said (West) – operation is at 50 percent normalcy with some vessel berthing backlog.
- Port Said (East) – operation is at 25 percent normalcy with some vessel berthing backlog.
APL offices are opened today with telephone access and e-mail contact. We are planning to recover cargo previously diverted to Malta and Salalah and this will likely take a few weeks to accomplish.
If you need more information, please contact your local APL representative.
