Mohab Mamish, head of the SCA, said in a statement that it succeeded in attracting the biggest ships in the world, the official MENA news agency reported.
Mamish cited that the world’s fifth largest container ship transited the international waterway earlier in the day.

The container ship, named Mol, was traveling from Sri Lanka to the Moroccan port of Tanger-Med in an 11-hour voyage, a source at the SCA told MENA.
The nine-floor vessel is about 400 meters long, 59 meters wide and 15.5 meters deep, the source added.

Mamish said the SCA is keen on implementing development projects on a regular basis to keep pace with the latest developments in the field of maritime transport.
