In other Egyptian maritime news Abdel-Aal Ali, Head of Swiss-based supply chain company Panalpina, has spoken out over the Egyptian government’s lack of clarity with regards to its interest in logistical zones and the laws and regulations that the country must comply with in order to effectively implement them.

Ali said that the projects are important when put in line with recovering oil prices, with projects anticipated to relate to the development of shipping traffic at East Port Said.

Meanwhile the Suez Canal Authority has recently inaugurated a new lane via East Port Said in order to allow both ships to sail in both directions and to lower waiting times, sparking a new era of trade for Egypt and its ports.
