Middle East Overview

Egypt - Sokhna


DP World Sokhna sits just south of the Suez Canal on the Red Sea on one of the world's busiest maritime trade routes – from Asia to the Middle East and beyond, to Europe.

Sokhna is the closest port to Cairo, with its 18 million consumers only 120km distant, and is linked by a modern six-lane highway and extensive rail links. Most of the cargo from the east destined for Egypt is imported via Sokhna. As well as attracting vessels coming from Europe with cargo for Egypt, there is existing trade for empties destined for the East.
