Port Said disruptions hit SCCT

02 Mar 2013

Shipping lines CMA CGM, COSCO and Maersk Line were forced to divert calls from Port Said to the Israeli port of Eilat in February on the back of disruptive protests at Port Said, according to local media.

Road blockages by protesters cost the Suez Canal Container Terminal – a concessionaire at the port - $3m in just four days, the operator revealed in a statement.

Another operator, Egyptian Transport and Commercial Services Company also confirmed it had halted its storage activity at the port’s free zone as a result of the demonstrations.
