Good day,,,

Please note that Rear Admiral / Chairman of the General Authority for Suez Canal Economic Zone have decided that vessels will be charged according to Suez Canal Gross tonnage SCGT instead of Gross registered tonnage GRT.
This will be applied for vessels which will be measured by the measurement dept. of Suez Canal Authority.
Bearing in mind that these charges will be effected as from 15/07/2018.

Best regards
Vice president of Suez canal Economic Zone
Admiral / Abdel Kader Darich


Kindly note that this will affect the vessels which calls Egyptian Ports belongs to SC Zone such as Port Said East and West, Adabiya and Sokhna Ports. The SCGT is always less than the GRT, in our opinion the new way of charge will help in reducing the costs at SC Zone Ports.

Please be guided accordingly.
