Egypt to Build 8 Logistics Zones
Egyptian Transport Minister Kamel El-Wazir has announced a plan to set up eight logistics zones in Sinai, linking them to the eastern border and the ports of Arish and Taba.
The logistics zones will be located near Taba land port, which is behind Al-Awja port, meaning the logistics zones are close to a variety of key logistics infrastructure.
The logistics zones are part of the state’s major project to develop Sinai, which includes the rehabilitation and construction of the Al-Ferdan 'line', east of Port Said/Bir Al-Abd/Arish/Taba, with a length of 500 km.
This line will connect the residential and industrial communities in Sinai with the railway network and facilitate the transportation of passengers and goods.
The line will also enable the export of products from the factories in Sinai through the ports of Arish and Taba.
The state is also developing and expanding Arish Port to make it an international hub connected to the railway network.
