The Haifa District Planning and Construction Committee has approved plans that enable shipping containers that do not contain dangerous substances to be stored at the new Carmel Aleph terminal adjacent to the port, reports www.local.co.il. The new terminal, which cost NIS 1 billion and took four years to build, provides storage space for some 20,000 shipping containers and significantly increases the capacity of the port to store incoming or outgoing shipments. According to the report, the Israeli Ports Company presented the plans to the committee with the aim of establishing a framework that enables the new terminal to begin storing shipping containers for import or export that contain products not considered dangerous. The report said the ports company has a detailed plan for the separate storage of shipping containers containing dangerous substances.
