Owner: Egyptian Group for Multi-purpose Stations.
Consultant: Dar Al Handasa & Modern Engineering Consultant.
The Tahya Masr Multipurpose Terminal is an upcoming terminal that will play a vital role in transforming the Alexandria Port into a regional and global hub for trade and logistics. With capacity for over two million tons of goods a year, the terminal is expected to boost the port’s annual revenues by $50 million, shorten waiting times for ships docking at the port, create investment opportunities, and establish 4,500 direct and indirect job opportunities. Moreover, the terminal will play a vital role in Egypt’s modern transport sector, as a key linking chain in the upcoming $4.45 billion high-speed electric rail line, which will link the Red Sea Port of Ain Sokhna to the Mediterranean Ports of Alexandria and Marsa Matrouh. The terminal will also supply the upcoming dry port in the 6th of October Industrial City as well as the logistics centre associated with the Alexandria Port.
