Located on the southernmost part of Jordan, Port Aqaba is an industrial port that sits on the Gulf of Aqaba. It services surrounding Middle Eastern countries, and Egyptian coastal cities in particular. As the only port in Jordan, Aqaba has an important role in the quickly modernizing country. Port Aqaba was even ranked the Best Container Terminal in the Middle East because of its cargo services for neighboring countries and its location between four countries and three continents, which makes the port very accessible.
Because of Jordan’s industrial success, Port Aqaba can import and export virtually all cargo, including automobiles, construction equipment, mining equipment, and manufactured goods. Clients who are interested in transporting automobiles/cars/vehicles to Jordan from the United States full-container loads (FCL) to transport an automobile via container. With FCL, the client will get a full container to themselves and will get to transport personal effects with the automobile as well.
Clients can also ship their automobiles via roll-on/roll-off (RoRo) vessel, which is a cheaper and more efficient option in many circumstances. Port Aqaba accepts about 3,000 cars per day, which can show shippers how productive and trusted the port is.
Heavy machinery and construction equipment are also very popular imports into Port Aqaba. As with international automobile shipping, clients have the opportunity to opt for RoRo shipping if the equipment is wheeled and self-propelled, and FCL or LCL container shipping otherwise. Both alternatives allow for a safe transport overseas and protect the equipment from the elements.
