The Port of Alexandria still occupies the issues between ports of the Arab Republic of Egypt regarding the volume of traffic, where approximately 60% of Egypt’s foreign trade is handled through the port of Alexandria.

The City of Alexandria is located at the  west  end of the River Nile between the  Mediterranean  Sea and Lake Mariot. It is considered the second most important  city  and  the  main  port  in Egypt,  it handles over three  quarters  of  Egypt’s  foreign trade. Alexandria port  consists  of  two  harbors ( East  and  west )  separated  by  . a  T-shaped peninsula. The East harbor is shallow and  is  not used in navigation. The West harbor is used for commercial shipping. The harbor is  formed  by tow converging breakwaters . No development was made  to  the  port  for  many  years  until  an integrated plan was set for the various areas of work in the port. Alexandria has drawn a lot of interest throughout history and those wishing to visit Alexandria would not be disappointed. US citizens are advised to check the US Department of State’s travel warnings and alerts if they plan a trip to Alexandria.
