Transmar to showcase services at Egypt food expo

CAIRO, November 29, 2018

Transmar, a leading Egyptian container shipping line, will be showcasing its latest offerings and solutions at the Food Africa Expo, to be held in Cairo, Egypt, next month.

The expo will kick off from December 8 to 11, at the Cairo International Convention and Exhibition Centre.

The expo takes place at the start of the Egyptian citrus season and Transmar will be spearheading the export drive of lemons, limes, tangerines, grapefruits and especially oranges using containers from its home port of Adabiya ideally located on the Red Sea.

Transmar has a wide range of containers ranging from 20ft through 40ft and high cubes as part of its extensive export operations based in Adabiya.

With an increasing demand and more exporters looking for temperature controlled container shipping, the company is also adding to its extensive reefer fleet over the next few months.

Mohamed El Ahwal, chief executive officer of Transmar, believes the new reefer containers will add capacity and offer exporters even more choice when it comes to temperature controlled distribution.

He said: “This is a very important time for the Egyptian economy which is showing increasing signs of recovery and growth. The start of the citrus season is always an important time for the country and we work with citrus growers and exporters to provide reliable, efficient and secure deliveries using our scheduled services from Adabiya into Saudi Arabia through the port of Jeddah along with services into the port of Sudan in East Africa.”

“We are developing specific services for citrus exporters as part of our expansion plans for the region. Our company has the services, the technology, the right containers and the experience to support Egyptian exporters in this vital area,” he added.

“Our presence at the expo will give us an opportunity to talk to existing customers and also to exporters who want to reach out to wider and newer markets in the Gulf. At our company we are also handling the exports of dry foods with increasing exports of confectionery and snacks from Egypt,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
