Egypt works on a new tunnel for Suez Canal Container Terminal
Authorities has announced that the new tunnel offers a faster access to the Suez Canal Container Terminal and improves its position to become Egypt’s primary gateway terminal.
“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,” Lars Vang Christensen, CEO of SCCT, stated.
