Port of Alexandria

The port of Alexandria is among the oldest operating ports in the world, having been established in 1900 BC. The nation’s main port, which handles around three-fourths of all maritime trade and accounts for over 60% of all export and import earnings, is located in Egypt. A complex industrial, commercial, and agricultural sector is supported by this region, which is located on the northern Egyptian coast between the Mediterranean Sea and Lake Mariout.

Damietta port, which was formerly a modest harbour with historical significance, was expanded and restored to relieve congestion in Alexandria.
