Port Vision

The Port of Alexandria is set to expand throughout the next ten years. More goods and more companies will arrive, and there will be more demand for specialized knowledge and services. This expansion will be good for Egypt and good for Alexandria, but it will not be all smooth sailing. An expansion that benefits the country, the region and the city, demands that choices be made. The municipality of Alexandria and the Port of Alexandria make these choices in Port Vision 2020: a vision for the future of the Port of Alexandria. 'Quality' is the key to this plan.

Port Strategy

Putting this vision in mind we have set out to formulate our strategy to meet our objectives. We focused mainly on the following directions:

1- Enhancing the port's infrastructure to increase its efficiency
2- Establishing new quays with depths and specifications that meet future generations of ships.
3- Focusing on IT infrastructure and IT services as an important tool to facilitate and enhance our services putting the clients' satisfaction as our main objective.
4- Integrating the efforts of all parties within port to work as a port community to enhance and facilitate work flows and provide better services.
5- Influencing companies within port to enhance their capacities and productivity
6- Commitment to our people as they are our main tool to present our services.
