Suez Canal Container Terminal (SCCT) (Arabic: شركة قناة السويس للحاويات) is a container terminal emerged at Port Said East as a transshipment centre for the Eastern Mediterranean at the northern entrance to the Suez Canal. The terminal has been operational since October 2004. Expansion on the facility increased the total number of operational quay cranes to 12. Additionally, terminal expansion plans expected to double terminal size were planned to be completed by 2012. This expansion is expected to make the facility the largest container terminal in the Mediterranean Sea.
The SCCT is a joint venture business.
