Transmar looks to capture market share in citrus export season

EXPORT WATCH- Home-grown shipping giant Transmar is looking to capture new market share as Egypt’s citrus export season gets underway, the company said in a statement yesterday. Transmar is looking to capture new market share in the export of lemons, limes, tangerines and grapefruits and singled out oranges as a particularly promising category as it invests in the growth of its reefer fleet over the coming months, CEO Mohamed El Ahwal said. The company serves citrus exporters out of Adabiya Port into Saudi Arabia and Port of Sudan. El Ahwal said Transmar is working with exporters seeking “wider and newer markets in the Gulf” and noted the company is also growing its share of “the export of dry foods, with increasing exports of confectionery and snacks from Egypt.”
