Site MapThe Importance of Port Said and Suez Port



The Suez Canal is considered to be the shortest link between the east and the west due to its unique geographic location; it is an important international navigation canal linking between the Mediterranean sea at Port said and the red sea at Suez .The unique geographical position of the Suez Canal makes it of special importance to the world and to Egypt as well.

This importance is getting augmented with the evolution of maritime transport and world trade. The maritime transport is the cheapest means of transport, whereas more than 80 % of the world trade volume is transported via waterways (seaborne trade).

Saving in distance , time and in operating costs for vessels that transit the Canal, also firm up this importance.


Port Said Port

The Seabird-Marine Port Said office in
Egypt was established due to the importance of
Port Said Port and the vital role it plays in the national economy.


Port Said port, besides being a commercial port
where many cargo ships call, is also a major cruise
port which receives many cruise ship port calls throughout the year.


Port Said has two big container terminals,
one located to the west and another more
recently established one to the East of the port area. 
Hence one of the main activities at the
Seabird-Marine Port Said office is Liner Services. 


Seabird-Marine Port Said comprises of a large,
experienced and professional Operations team
who are well-equipped to handle all type of ships
including bulk carriers, general cargo ships, tankers,
LPG, LNG, Containers, Car Carriers and naval vessels.

handling cruise vessels and attending to their particular needs.

responsible for handling all vessels making the southbound
transit of the Suez Canal as well as port calls at Port Said port and El Arish port.


Based on our faith in the fact that our company’s strength and potential lies in our man power is the reason why Seabird-Marine Port Said was very careful to select the best boarding representatives who are fluent in the English language.

They ensure that those invoices match the related tariff.  Every single invoice is then translated into English as most of the official authorities invoices are Seabird-Marine issued in the Arabic language.
