DP World has said its key Egyptian operation, DP World Sokhna, is operating at maximum capacity and continues to meet import and economic requirements during the COVID-19 pandemic.

In a statement, the terminal operator said it’s been supporting the Egyptian economy by maintaining operations and assisting the Port throughout the crisis.

It has implemented comprehensive safety measures and preventive actions as part of its efforts to stop the spread of COVID-19 and “protect the health and safety of its customers and employees”.

It has done so in accordance with all guidance from the Egyptian Ministry of Health and the World Health Organization (WHO).

As part of this, it has focused on information sharing concerning social distancing and hygiene standards, as well as sharing out masks, gloves and sanitizers.

In addition, it has also made provision for the distribution of food supplies to be delivered to over 1,200 families of affected non-regular workers in Suez. It will also continue its traditional ‘Ramadan Boxes’ of essential food supplies for workers’ families during the holy month of Ramadan.

Ajay Kumar Singh, Chief Executive Officer, DP World Sokhna said: “Over the past 10 years, we have successfully positioned DP World Sokhna to be Egypt’s leading port.

“Our true contribution is to be manifested in this challenging time and we are committed to maintaining the success of DP World Sokhna.

“This puts us in a firm position of responsibility in supporting the economy of Egypt and serving its people.

“Our people are our most valuable assets and the health and safety measures are focused on timely actions to prevent the spread of COVID-19 infection.

“Our programme adheres strictly to the requirements of the Egyptian Ministry of Health and the World Health Organization (WHO),” Singh added.

DP World Sokhna has an annual capacity of approximately one million TEU annually with an upcoming capacity of 750,000 TEU with the opening of Basin 2 in June 2020.
