Nile Logistics is Qalaa Holdings’ transportation & logistics holding company with subsidiaries that deliver transportation efficiencies including seaport services in Egypt and river transportation solutions for clients in Egypt and South Sudan.

Nile Logistics operates three subsidiaries that offer stevedoring and river transportation services in Egypt and South Sudan. In Egypt, Nile Logistics’ subsidiaries operate a stevedoring on anchor service in various Egyptian ports. While the majority of the company’s historical clients have been coal importers, Nile Logistics is currently looking to expand its operations to include exporters of other commodities, namely grain. In addition to its stevedoring operations, Nile Logistics’ subsidiaries in Egypt operate an inland container depot in Noubareya Alexandria.

Nile Logistics also has a large fleet of fuel-efficient, environmentally friendly river barges that transport cargo along the Nile. Each river barge has the same capacity as 20-40 truckloads but requires a fraction of the fuel and money to operate making it a more economically viable transport option particularly in light of the recent removal of fuel subsidies in Egypt. In South Sudan, Nile Logistics’ subsidiary Nile Barges owns three convoys and transports a variety of goods between the northern and southern parts of South Sudan.

  • Nile Logistics, Qalaa Holdings’ platform in the logistics, river transport and port management sector, offers a variety of transportation and logistical services using the river Nile as a backbone for transport and linking producers, exporters and importers to global and local markets...
