The Logistic Free Zone area (LFZ) at the Port of Beirut has been inaugurated on the 12th of July 2007, by an official ceremony. Building of the LFZ represents an important step in the history of the port, and is an answer to an old request of the active interveners in the transportation sector in Lebanon.
The logistic warehouses receive cargo coming from foreign countries to free zone destination. These goods can go through some operations like packing and re-packing for example, or any needed operation when it is necessary, in preparation for export via land, sea or air or for import to inside Lebanon.
Investment in the LFZ is open for all companies operating in sectors related to transport, transit, export and international trade. Ten big companies have already built warehouses in the area and warehouses for other companies are under construction.
