Haifa Port – July 2021 Movements

The Port of Haifa  is the largest of Israel’s three major international seaports, the others being the Port of Ashdod, and the Port of Eilat. It has a natural deep water harbor, which operates all year long, and serves both passenger and merchant ships. It is one of the largest ports in the eastern Mediterranean in terms of freight volume and handles about 30 million tons of cargo per year (not including Israel Shipyards’ port).

Here is some of interesting shipping movements –

4th July – The 2006 built and 239 metre container ship NAVIOS SUMMER entered Haifa.

14th July – The 2010 built cement carrier BLUE CIMENT 2 left Haifa bound to Yesilovacik, Turkey. She’s a frequent caller with Turkish cement.
