Furthermore, the agreement calls for the combined execution of networking activities, involvement in international initiatives, and the sharing of information and best practises, allowing ThPA S.A. to test novel technologies and ideas through the marine technology centre at Port of Ashdod.

The deal signed between ThPA S.A. and Ashdod Port Company Ltd. marks a significant regional collaboration between two of the most important ports in the wider Mediterranean area, while it also aims to enhance bilateral connections between Greece and Israel.

In September 2022, the Greek Minister of Maritime Affairs and Insular Policy, Giannis Plakiotakis, inaugurated two New Panamax specially designed ship-to-shore (STS) cranes at ThPA S.A.

More recently, in May 2023, ThPA S.A. and the Federation of Stevedores of Greece (OFE) successfully concluded their negotiations to regulate dockworkers’ working conditions.
