Despite global coronavirus outbreak Ashdod Port is operating fully

Israel’s largest seaport in the southern city of Ashdod is fully operational, with containers being unloaded at a similar pace to a year ago despite the global outbreak of coronavirus, the port’s chairwoman said.

 

Some 97% of cargo to Israel, by weight, arrives by ship and the government has assured the country there will be no shortages of essential products.

There are currently 25 ships at the port and since the start of 2020 some 200,000 containers have been unloaded, Orna Hozman Bechor told Reuters.

“The pace is completely normal,” she said.

 

Only a handful of workers have had to self-quarantine because of possible exposure to the virus and this has not impacted the pace of work. ​
