Incorporated in Egypt, Amana Trading & Mining operates along two separate business lines:
- Procurement and Logistics for the account of Mediterranean Fertilizers.
- Contractor in charge of crushing the rock phosphate for the account of the mine.
Procurement and Logistics
Amana Trading & Mining is the procurement arm of Mediterranean Fertilizers’ rock phosphate trading activity. It also handles the transportation of extracted goods from the mines to final destinations all over the world. The goods are dispatched in bags in containers, bulk in containers, or bulk in chartered vessels, depending on client requirements.
The company has warehouses located near three of the biggest Red Sea and Mediterranean Sea ports (Sokhna, Adabiya & Damietta) in Egypt, and due to the strong relationship built through years of business with liners, Amana’s team is able to allocate the shipments of rock phosphate to the best routes for fast and accurate delivery.
In fact, the company has a long-standing relationship with chartered vessels shipping around 30 vessels per year on average to multiple countries and in bulk quantities. And the company also assumes all the paperwork and formalities required for export in a timely fashion thus ensuring the smooth flow of operations without having any delays that might affect quality of service. More importantly, Amana Trading and Logistics is never short on following up with clients, finding the most suitable solutions and fulfilling all inquiries to maintain a trustworthy and value-added relationship with customers.
Rock Phosphate Milling
In 2018, Amana Trading & Mining installed a set of stone crushing machines in one of the Misr Phosphate’s mines with a crushing capacity of 2,000 metric tons per day. A second similar machine was added to increase output to approximately 4000 metric tons per day. These machines allow the supply of different quantities with negligible waste while ensuring the finest texture and quality of extracted goods.
In November 2018, Amana Trading & Mining was awarded at the 15th Arab International Conference for Mineral Resources in Cairo for being one of the major exporters of rock phosphate in Egypt.
