The first German green logistics hub in Sokhna 360

It offers multinationals a number of incentives including full foreign ownership of companies, 100% foreign control of import and export activities, and full exemptions from customs duties and sales tax.

What they said: “BASF trusted that Sokhna 360 suited their aspirations to allocate their first green logistic hub, assuring the high standards of safety, technology, integration and sustainability.” said Elsewedy Industrial Development’s CEO Mohamed El Kamah.
