In contrary to other experiences, we have found a very trustworthy company for shipping out of Alexandria which we could definitely recommend to anyone who likes to ship its car/bike in container back home:
Hereby our experience:
In advance, we heard horrifying stories about Egyptian bureaucracy, people, corruption, etc. but we ended up with a company called ' All Trans Int', run by the charming Nermien Manish. She- together with her professional and friendly colleagues - arranged the whole shipping process within 3 days. It even could 've been less of our time, were it not that the Legislative office was on strike so that we had to go to the customs, etc. in person instead of authorizing their representative.
The fee was 4.000 LE (about 400 euros) for our vehicle in a 20ft container , which included all the services on Egyptian side (customs, container handling, transport, express-costs of the stamped carnet back home, etc). As we also shipped our car from Rotterdam to Cape Town we can say that this is a fair price. Of course this fee excludes the shipment of the container itself (400euro) and the costs on the Rotterdam-side (about 600 euros)
Feel free to ask me for more info, or else just contact Nermien Mamish, she speaks excellent English:
