SCCT improves connectivity with new tunnel


Suez Canal Container Terminal (SCCT) announced that it is benefiting from improved connectivity with the opening of the new 3rd July tunnel under the Suez Canal, just south of Port Said.


 Lars Vang Christensen, chief executive, SCCT commented: “The new tunnel, built to internationally recognised security standards, provides a fast connection to the highly populated districts in the Nile Delta and key industrial zones in Greater Cairo, also making SCCT a cost-effective option for import and export customers.”


“We thank the Government of Egypt and Suez Canal Zone and Authority for focusing on infrastructure investments that increases the attractiveness of Port Said East for business and investors. This is a key first step and we are confident this will be followed by other immediate and urgent actions required to once again make Egyptian ports, including Port Said East Port, competitive”
