Rehabilitation and Expansion

In the early 90's, a phase of development and reconstruction took place. The Port of Beirut was
rehabilitated and it expanded to encompass 4 docks, 2 new quays (15,16) and new container
terminal with 700,000 TEU/year capacity. The container terminal became operational in February
2005. It is equipped with 6 ship-to-shore gantry cranes (outreach 60m.) and 18 rubber tyred
