Our activity diversification strategy is proving itself and enabling the company to enjoy consistent long-term growth.

In the cement sector, we worked to increase our holdings in the two companies under our control, Cement and Isco, a move that would allow us to enjoy a larger share of cement operating profits, which is a significant growth engine for the company, while the cement industry enjoyed increased demand and accelerated growth.

In the port activity sector, we continue to present world-class efficiency, which is reflected in the volume of cargo unloading per ton in relation to the size of the port, and we continue to operate in a ’24/7 format, with maximum occupancy, to help the economy cope with congestion at Israeli ports. This was reflected in both an increase in the volume of activity and an increase in profitability.

“World transport prices continue to provide a strong boost to our activity in the field of maritime transport, in which we currently operate a fleet that includes 9 ships, including a ship with a capacity of about 37.5 thousand tons. In addition, we own 4 ships dedicated to transporting cement, of which 3 ships are used by the subsidiary Cement and another ship, which operates to transport cement for third parties.
