Casablanca, Morocco (PortSEurope) February 12, 2019 – Morocco’s Agence Nationale des Ports (ANP – National Ports Agency) is issuing a tender for a feasibility study for the creation of an free trade industrial-logistics zone backed by the port of Casablanca in the Zenata region. The opening of the folds is scheduled for March 5th. The cost of the study is estimated at 4 MDH HT.
In addition to the feasibility of creating an industrial-logistics zone, the study aims to identify the industrial and logistic activities that can be implemented in the new zone that will generate traffic for the port of Casablanca. It also aims to assess the needs of the activities in terms of area, quantifying the flow of potential goods between the future industrial-logistics zone and Casablanca port. The feasibility study will thus propose a management plan for hosting the identified activities while evaluating the figures and development costs of the industrial-logistics zone.
The largest port in Morocco, the port of Casablanca is a versatile port with a strong emphasis on commercial trade. The port spans over 450 ha, including 256 ha of platforms and features more than 8 km of quays. It can accommodate up to 40 ships at a time and features a commercial port, a fishing port, a marina, as well as facilities and infrastructure for launching and docking ships in shipyards.
