LEBANON, FIRST CONTRACTS FOR NEW CONTAINER TERMINAL
The new container terminal in Tripoli, managed by the Emirati society “Gulftainer”, that operates for more than six months, has finally begun its activity. Its commissioning has been delayed several times, due to an insufficient number of staff to ensure clearance.
This activity begins with a first contract by “Cedars Premium Food & Beverage”, local company situated in North of the country, producer of fruit juices, which plans to export 2000 containers to Iraq in the next eight months.
Followed by a second contract signed by Khawla group, local group, for the importation of 12 granite containers per week, over the next 10 months, out of Egypt. Other contracts are nearing completion.
The new container terminal is operational for almost six months, but its commissioning was delayed several times, partly due to a number.
