During this period the development focused on the container terminal, SPC synchronized the terminal infrastructures and services with the international practices and approaches through development strategy plan as follows:
1. Rehabilitation of berth 17/18 and increasing the length of the berth from (178)m to (420)m.
2. Purchase of(4) Gantry cranes and (11) Rubber Tyred Gantries (RTG) .

6. construction of new container terminal,( will be completed by June 2009).
7. Dredging port Sudan and Suakin (6) million cubic meters for berths and entrance channel.
8. Purchase of(4) additional Gantry crane and (8) Rubber Tyred Gantries (RTG) (1st stage).
9. Re-structuring and management services.
1. A Container Terminal Information System (CTIS):
An Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) and management assistance was introduced in 2003 & 2004 in co-operation with (Germany).
It includes dredging and construction of (4) berths of multi-purpose cargo with a total length of (1200)m & (14.2) draft and (450.000) sq.m of reclaimed stacking area, project completed in (2006).
This project consists of two container berths with a total length of (791m) and (16m) depth, fully equipped with ship-to-shore cranes, RTGs, Container Handling Equipments and a stacking area of (200.000)sq.m. The project started in June 2006 and will be completed in 2010.The project is aimed to coping with the rapidly growing container traffic in the Port Sudan.
Since 2003 S.P.C adopted a re-structuring strategyplan to develop the operational performances and efficiencyof the Sudanese ports. As a result in July 2005 the S.P.C and HPC Hamburg Port Consulting GmbH signed a service contract for preparing a strategy plan for the Future Container Terminal in Port Sudan. The consultant’s proposal ,which is an elementary part of the service contract, outlines the work programme and approach for the implementation of the strategy plan for both the container terminals by the following :
1.Establishing an immediate plan for the development of the operational performance of the container terminal ,included Information Technology system( IT) .
2. Involvement of the private sector with regard to all operative activities in the port.
3.Re-structiring the Sudanese ports.
As a result of these recommendations ,the S.P.C authority has authorized HPC to implement a re-structuring program to establish a (LANDLORD AUTHORITY) and a privatization program. At the same time there is a program for the development of the operational performances and efficiencyof the container terminal by management contract services.
The future projects include:
1- Construction of container terminal (Suakin).
2- Livestock Terminal (Marsa Elshaikh Ebrahim).
3- In-land container terminal (6.000.000) cubic meters (Asotreba – Port Sudan).
SPC is preparing study for the Osman Digna Port to become a modern Port, with (12-15) berths for container handling, general cargo and bulk, in addition to a special berth for tourism.
The dredging work is started , and the construction of the first stage (2 berths) will start in 2009.
S.P.C has a program for constructing a special port for livestock and fish export about 30 km south of Suakin Port. It is expected the start of construction will take place in 2010.
