Jeddah Islamic Port sets record container throughput in October

Jeddah Islamic Port sets record monthly throughput in October

Jeddah Islamic Port has set a new monthly record after handling a container throughput for October of 511,348 TEU.

This recent accomplishment in October significantly surpasses the previous record set by Jeddah Islamic Port in July 2023 when it handled 491,197 TEU.

These records align with the national strategy for transport and logistics services, which aims to reinforce the Kingdom’s standing as a global logistics hub connecting three continents.

The record also signifies the successful collaboration between MAWANI and its strategic partners. Numerous joint projects and agreements have been initiated to enhance infrastructure and upgrade the container terminals.

These initiatives include the establishment of new docks with larger design depths, deepening approach channels, turning basins, and sea lanes, and equipping them with modern, automated, and environmentally friendly equipment.

In addition to setting new records, the port has also been the recipient of several international accolades. These include the Advanced Port Infrastructure Award at the Landmarks of Logistics 2023, the “Port of the Year” award at the Logistics and Transport Awards ceremony in the United Arab Emirates in 2023, and the “Best Port” award at the 2022 International Green Shipping Summit Awards in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.

Last month, MAWANI and the General Authority for Survey and Geospatial Information signed a Memorandum of Cooperation (MoC) with the aim of raising the level of planning for joint works.

More recently, MAWANI and Saudi Global Ports (SGP) agreed to create a fully integrated logistics park covering over 1 million square metres at King Abdulaziz Port in Dammam.
