The creation of a dry port, a Value-Added Logistics Centre (VALC) near the 6th October City, west of Cairo, to be connected by rail to the Port of El Dekhila Port and the Great Port of Alexandria (GPA) container hub. The VALC is planned to be the centre of a state-of-the-art facility which will combine all types of logistics/warehousing activities (refrigerated stores, bonded and non-bonded warehouses, etc.) It will allow the transfer of part of the container traffic transiting these two ports to the dry port for customs clearance and thus relieve congestion at these two existing ports and reduce other negative environmental and social externalities linked to the present movement of this traffic by road vehicles.
