Major products transported include crude oil and its derivatives, food, and beverages, machinery, and FMCG goods.

Asia is the largest flow corridor for the freight forwarding industry in Egypt in terms of revenue. Future trends in freight forwarding include increased trade with African nations and utilizing the Nile River for transportation of goods.

By Warehousing

The warehousing market in Egypt has been growing at a robust rate due to the government’s focus on the logistics infrastructure in the country. The market is fragmented with numerous players in the market. Upcoming warehousing regions include Banha Investment Zone, Ain Sokhna port, and East Port Said Port. New technologies in the warehousing market in Egypt include WMS, and automation, which will help to increase the efficiency of the warehousing sector as well as reducing operating costs.
