In 2003, As a result of a general strike at Israeli ports, the
Minister of Transport and Minister of Finance decided to
operate and to run the Israel Shipyards port (ISY Port) as
an alternative entrance for goods in order to decrease the
damage to Israeli exports and imports. ISY (Israel Shipyard)
was looking for a local private company with proven
experience in stevedore services. Marine Ties was chosen to
provide the task.
In 2005, despite heavy pressure the first reform was carried out
in Israelís port services, integrating the private sector business
within Israel Shipyards, formerly run by the government.
In 2007, the government approved the Israel Shipyard
Company to provide port services. Israel Shipyards thus
became the first private port in Israel. Continuation of
the same year set Israel Shipyards a tender for operating
the port. Marine Ties won the tender and following the
tender, Israel Shipyards port management and Marine Ties
established the first and only private port in the country.
In June 2012, Israel Shipyards port was elected as Israelís
leading port done by a satisfaction survey of users
conducted by the Chamber of Shipping Ports.
