AD Ports Group has finalised a key agreement with the Red Sea Ports Authority (RSPA) to develop and operate a multi-purpose terminal at Safaga Sea Port. The signing occurred at the Egyptian Cabinet headquarters in Cairo and is sanctioned under the Law on the Granting of Commitment Contract issued on November 1.
The collaboration entails a $200 million investment over three years to establish a state-of-the-art facility strategically located in the Red Sea. This internationally operated port will serve the Upper Egypt region and is set to become operational by 2025.

The project aims to bring significant economic impact, enhancing efficiency and providing logistics solutions for key strategic trading partners.
