The four-member team was led by the chairman of the port, admiral Medhat Attia. Koper has been cooperating with the port of Alexandria for many years and we are strengthening contacts with Alexandria as well as improving regular weekly container connections. We signed the cooperation agreement with the port of Alexandria in 2001, though last year it was upgraded.
In particular, the delegation wanted to get acquainted with our achievements in the field of environmental protection and how we have become recognizable in the wider international area as a green port.
They learned about the operation of several terminals in detail and were impressed by the good organization of work in port of Koper. They expressed satisfaction with the exemplary cooperation of the entire Koper Port Community, which, in their opinion, is the key to the well organized transport chain through the Slovenian port.
In addition to representatives of Luka Koper, the group included Koper’s representatives of freight forwarders, agents and customs control. Their discussion focused on the possibilities of expanding cooperation and improving processes for faster flow of goods, as well as the possibilities of strengthening the flow of goods not only for Koper’s import and export from Egypt, but also for the port of Alexandria to import goods from our hinterland markets to the wider North African area.
