NNA – The huge container ship, Teno, measuring 300 meters in length, reached the Port of Tripoli today, as the Port Director Ahmad Tamer, Head of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry in the North, Toufic Dabbousi, the ship's Agent Emile Amatouri and the Port’s Workers Union Head Ahmed al-Saeed were there to receive it.
The anchored cargo ship is part of the “Megam” maritime line, which is run by the French company, CMA CGM, in cooperation with a group of international maritime companies, and is considered a commercial link between the eastern Mediterranean and the Arabian Gulf. This line has adopted the port of Tripoli as its main focal point in the eastern Mediterranean to transport goods to the Lebanese local market, and a transshipment point as a terminal for storing containers and then loading them on small vessels to transport them to other ports.
The importance of the “Megam” marine line lies in its adoption of the port of Tripoli as a station for Lebanese exports to the Arab Gulf and the import of Gulf goods to Lebanon. The number of trips for this new marine line will reach four per month, at a rate of one per week.
Moreover, the adoption of this line by the most significant international companies in the world comes to affirm the confidence in the position and location of the port of Tripoli in the eastern Mediterranean.
