Suez terminal reaches record

[ August 26, 2021   //   ]

Suez Canal Container Terminal says that its ongoing upgrade project has already resulted in a new record, 57,242 moves or 95,579teu in the week beginning 15 August. SCCT, a joint venture with APM Terminals as the majority shareholder, plus COSCO, the Suez Canal Authority and the National Bank of Egypt, embarked on a series of investments in 2020. It includes heightening six ship-to-shore, allowing 12 out of 18 of the terminal’s STS cranes to handle ultra large container vessels. SCCT says it is the only terminal in Egypt to be able to simultaneously serve two mega vessels, without compromising productivity.
