BP&L were appointed to master plan Dry Port solutions for Lebanon that integrated with the seaport system to address growing port volumes, traffic congestion in and around the port, and improve logistics across the Levant.
The project commenced with evaluation of site options considered in conjunction with port development strategies and plans set within the context of current and anticipated port throughputs. These were further considered in conjunction with critical issues affecting regional logistics and options for road and rail developments.
This led to a two tier approach being applied. The first was based on a large scale Dry Port with Container, Dry Bulk and General Cargo capabilities located in or around the greater Beirut area. The second was based on inland container depots supported by a logistics centre. Evaluation to prioritise development alternatives was then undertaken leading to development of facility plans, block construction and operational costs as a basis for initial financial evaluation.
