The Saudi Port Authority (MAWANI) has recently announced the addition of Jeddah Islamic Port to the REX service operated by Omani International Logistics Group (ASYAD).

The new shipping service’s aim is to revitalise and accelerate the commercial movement, and achieve sustainable growth of the national economy.

Having launched in May 2023, the new freight service connects the Jeddah Islamic Port and the ports of Nava Sheva and Mundra in India, Salalah Oman and Sokhna in Egypt, with two ships, with a capacity of 2,800 TEU.

The service reportedly contributes to enhancing the competitive advantage of Jeddah Islamic Port and the Red Sea Gate Terminal Company.
