New ro-ro link likely to be soon put in place between Damietta and Trieste

April 21, 2023

Italy and Egypt “are working” on “launching a new line” of “ro-ro ferries between the ports of Damietta and Trieste.”

The announcement came from Italy’s Ambassador in Egypt, Michele Quaroni, speaking at the presentation of a report on the Suez Canal produced by the SRM Study Centre with Alexbank.

This new line between Egypt and the North Adriatic port, if and when it becomes operational, will make possible to connect “European markets” with Egypt and “other regions” in North Africa, the Ambassador added.

Which shipping company, which port terminals? That was not revealed publicly. However, market rumours report that Samer Seaports & Terminals and DFDS are actively working on that subject
