  • More in a container than you think

    Transmar’s container operations are 365 days a year but at this particular time the Egyptian citrus season is powering the huge interest in our reefer fleet. With so many customers looking for reliable reefer services across the Red Sea into Saudi Arabian and UAE markets, we have produced an in-depth downloadable booklet on citrus and the best methods of packing ready for transportation. You can download the booklet here: http://bit.ly/2JLWMfT This information is invaluable to exporters because it offers suggestions and information on how to pre-chill fruits (as well as potatoes and onions), pack them and the levels of temperature and oxygen and carbon dioxide levels that are needed to keep fruit exports in perfect conditions. It is a science and Transmar can help exporters to keep their citrus and other fruits in top condition with the right preparations.

  • Building on a real reputation

    We are the leading Egyptian container shipping line for a reason: established and working out of the country for decades and being a leading player across the Arabian Gulf, into Saudi Arabia and the UAE, we know what it takes to keep Egyptian exporters moving. The citrus season is well underway and our reefer fleet is currently handling increasing numbers of oranges, lemons, limes, mandarins, pomegranates and grapefruit. But we are also one of the country’s leading players in dry container traffic covering ambient foods from Egypt through to Saudi Arabia and the UAE using the ports of Jeddah and Jebel Ali. In both cases our containers and shipping services are based on tried, trusted and reliable operations. It is the reason why we are the first name in Egyptian exporters’ minds when it comes to choosing a reliable regional partner.

  • Exporters need reliability

    Egyptian exporters are currently in demand with the country’s citrus season in full swing and growth in Egypt’s economy fuelling greater interest in locally sourced products. With strong support from government bodies, Egypt saw exports rise to $25 billion in 2018 with chemicals, fertilisers, food industries and ready-made garments leading the export drive. With increasing interest in Egyptian exports from both Saudi Arabia and the UAE, Transmar is continuing as the leading Egyptian container shipping line to provide exporters with a comprehensive and reliable container shipping service. Reputation is built on name, credibility and delivery: Transmar is part of IACC Holdings and is backed with the experience and knowledge of people who understand what exporters, consignees and their customers want. Our exporters are looking for flexibility and with our experience and knowledge, the details, the pre-planning and the procedures for safe transit and customer satisfaction at both ends of the supply chain come as standard. Transmar has a superb reputation for container shipping across the Arabian Gulf: we have been handling Egyptian exports for decades and understand the regional complexities and requirements for making the processes smooth, reliable and dependable for our customers.

This is never more important than when dealing with perishable products and Transmar is leading the Egyptian export market in reefer shipping as more exporters talk to us about fulfilling their customers’ needs.

We have achieved this by creating services for Egyptian exporters that offer the best service, at the right price with the knowledge and experience to back it up.

  • Your exports are on track

    One of the frustrations for any exporter is in knowing where their container is: this is vital when your own customers are asking for urgent delivery or wanting to know what time the container will arrive at the destination port and when can they get their hands on your goods. After all, when you entrust your exports to a container shipping line, you need to believe in their services and their operational integrity. To do this you need a company that has a pedigree; one that has been working with exporters and offering high quality container services for decades. Transmar is the leading Egyptian container shipping line and has been developing and fine-tuning services for Egyptian exporters for long enough to be recognised for reliability, efficiency and customer satisfaction. In a digital age this is vital in keeping your own customers happy and we believe in doing the same for ours. We are in charge of your precious cargo from the moment it is delivered to us and until it arrives at the designated destination. We believe it is important to establish a strong working relationship with exporters. We want customers to see us as a reliable and efficient regional partner, a company that you can trust and rely on. Transmar achieves this with very high standards of customer service to ensure that your cargo shipments arrive safely and on time and with a personal touch from our staff. We see ourselves as more than just a collection and delivery company: Transmar can be your trusted export partner in a region that is currently experiencing strong growth and demand for Egyptian goods.
