Project Description
The project will develop a Logistics zone in Gargour 18 km south of Sfax. The project aims at supporting the development of the port Sfax which started receiving Ro-Ro ships and to be a logistical node for the second most important city in Tunisia. The estimated cost of the project is TND 82.5 million. The port of Sfax is Tunisia's second largest port, handling over 80,000 TEUs and almost 574,000 tons of non-unitized general cargo in 2015. The port of Sfax can receive neither trans-Mediterranean Ro-Ro ships nor carriers. The solid bulk in the northeastern part of the port has been transferred to Skhira port, therefore large spaces are freed up which will allow Ro-Ro ships to be received. In 2016, the Governor of Sfax officially proposed to the Ministry of Transport a plot of land in Gargour with a surface area of 50 hectares to establish a logistics platform in connection with the port of Sfax. This land is 17 km southwest of the port of Sfax and it is well connected to both road and rail networks, including a new highway (south of Sfax) which makes it quite easy to reach Tunis and the port of Radès by highway.
