Contractor starts Sokhna logistics park work

29 November 2023
Dubai-based DP World will operate the logistics park

UAE-headquartered Innovo Group has started the construction works on the Port of Sokhna logistics park in Egypt.

The first phase, to be developed at an investment of $50m, is expected to become operational by the end of 2024.

The logistics park will span an area of 300,000 square metres. 

The planned facility will cater to logistics, trading, distribution, value-added and light industrial activities.

According to the Suez Canal Economic Zone (SCZone), the groundbreaking ceremony was attended by its chairman, Waleid Gamal El-Dien, Suez Governor Abdel Majeed Sakr and DP World Regional Director Urs Moll.

The project is being overseen by Cairo-headquartered Main Development Company (MDC), an SCZone subsidiary.

In August 2022, MEED reported that Dubai-headquartered DP World and SCZone signed an agreement to develop a port-centric logistics services zone in Egypt’s Sokhna Port. The agreement was signed between Moll and Abdel-Nasser el-Rafai, CEO of MDC.
