AD Ports Group has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Egyptian Group for Multipurpose Terminals, the commercial arm of the Egyptian Ministry of Transportation, for the development and operation of a multipurpose terminal in Safaga port.
The signing was conducted on the sidelines of the fourth Smart Transport, Logistics & Traffic Fair & Forum for the MEA Region (TransMEA 2021). Under the MoU, AD Ports Group will explore investment opportunities and conduct feasibility and local market studies related to developing and operating a multipurpose terminal in Safaga port.
