Shiko Janna, CEO of the Port of Ashdod, said: "The current year is a direct continuation of the corona period which was a significant managerial challenge. We were able to adjust and adapt to the frequent changes and thus not only survived the period but also flourished. During the year we recruited dozens of new employees to boost our ability to handle heavy loads and continued to develop our infrastructures. We have signed a historic efficiency agreement and strengthened our innovation and technological development arms. All of these actions will help us maintain the relative advantages of the Port of Ashdod over the new ports and will continue to strengthen our status as Israel's port"
