Transportation in Egypt

Egypt is very important place in transport structure of entire planet thanks to the Suez canal and strategical placement of the country on the Red and Mediterranean sea. Modern development of the Suez canal will only add to the weight of Egypt as a world freight hub. However port infrastructure of Egypt itself is underdeveloped. Egypt does not fully use strategic placement and does not have logistic terminals and hubs.

Main means of transportation within Egypt is the ailing net of railroads and the extensive network of the highways across the country. Modernization of railroads is the key for making the development of the Egypt faster. Transportation across the Nile river is the most important way for goods and people in Egypt.
