It is worth noting that Captain / Tarik Shaheen, Chairman of APA, issued his instructions to start implementing this initiative (JIT) at the end of September 2020, which proved successful in record rates by the end of the second quarter of the current fiscal year on December 31, 2020, that is, after only three months. From the start of the implementation, as nearly 600 ships were received by following that system during this relatively short period of time. His Excellency directed to the necessity of continuous work from the operational and technical aspects to include the application of this system to all ships visiting the port as soon as possible as part of the objectives of the Alexandria Port Authority during 2021, which seeks to achieve unprecedented circulation rates in Egyptian ports during this year. 1/28/2021
