Tripoli, Lebanon (PortSEurope) February 2, 2021 – Last Sunday, the Northern Lebanese port of Tripoil received the large container vessel Teno, which is art of the Megem line, run by France’s CMA CGM. The Megem line has a rotation of Port Said, Tripoli, Mersin, Piraeus, Izmit, Istanbul, Aliaga, Iskenderun, Damietta, Jeddah, Jebel Ali, Hamad, Dammam, Jubail, Jebel Ali and Jeddah. Thus, it is a method
for Lebanon to export goods to the Gulf States and the reverse trade. The port could also develop as a transshipment hub for the region. This development comes at a time when the port’s profile has increasing as it has assumed a greater role in Lebanese trade after last August’s explosions at the country’s main port of Beirut which have limited its handling of vessels and goods. The TENO is a container ship registered and sailing under the flag of Liberia. Gross tonnage is 88,586 with a container capacity of 8,000 TEU. The ship is operated by Germany’s Hapag-Lloyd AG.
