Safina opens Egypt to visiting vessels

Egyptian ports are more than stopping points from south to north using the Suez Canal: they are a vital part of the export drive across the Arabian Gulf, along the Red Sea, into the UAE, Saudi Arabia and further afield. Safina is one of the leading shipping services agencies in the country and we have a presence in every port in Egypt. We believe that it is this attention to detail, our comprehensive geographical coverage and having the right people ready at the right time that gives us a competitive edge.

Working in partnership with customers is a vital element of our operational excellence: as part of an experienced group offering cargo, freight management, containers, stevedoring, ship repairs, ship husbandry, crew management and a host of other related services, Safina can call on expertise to cover every shipping and cargo request across any of our Egyptian locations. Our regional coverage is important as increasing traffic through the Suez Canal calls for more bunkering services, cargo-handling and stevedoring support for visiting ships and our Port Said office (opened in 1989) and our office in the Port of Damietta (opened in 2008) are the first ports of call for ships entering the Suez Canal on the north side.

When you need help with ship agency and maritime logistics services across any Egyptian ports, ours is the first name you should ask for.  The ship agency services we provide include arranging berths in your port of choice, handling your documentation, clearing your vessel with the necessary paperwork and certifications with port and other authorities, as well as releasing or receiving your cargo. Some may regard these are standard services but in Egypt we have the people on the ground to assist because we see ourselves not merely as service providers but as partners: our role is to ensure your vessels are cleared and serviced on arrival and ready for departure.

Having a comprehensive network is only part of the key to success for both Safina and our customers. We have operated our own ships so we understand what services are needed by visiting vessels. This translates into comprehensive and flexible ship agency services that will not impede your progress through the Red Sea. If you require repairs and maintenance on arrival, we can support you in these matters with or without prior notification.

As part of our liner agency services we can offer container tracking, haulage, documentation and crew transfers. We are an Egyptian company providing the highest standards of services in all Egyptian ports. Returning vessels ask for us by name and that comes from a combination of experience and trust. The recipe for satisfied customers is not merely in delivery but in the way services are delivered.
