The Dry Port as a Holistic Approach for the Relocation of City Gateways

Mourad Amer

Abstract


Alexandria city has several types of gateways that are not fully supported with connections and corridors that maximize their efficiency, thus, creating additional pressure on metropolitan areas. In addition, the marine gates of Alexandria and Dekheila face a lack of efficiency in their capacity as a port. The aim of this study is to relocate the city gates and to find a mechanism of change, which is necessary for promoting the globalization of Alexandria through strengthening inter-city freight transport.


Keywords
