Saudi Ports Authority (MAWANI) and the Zakat, Tax, and Customs Authority (ZATCA) have signed a Service-Level Agreement (SLA) to improve operations at Jeddah Islamic Port.

The deal, which will soon be rolled out across other ports, will be instrumental in supporting the Fasah importing and exporting platform in addition to streamlining operational efficiency and boosting competitiveness at Saudi ports.

The partnership also aims for evolving to regulate joint activities in ports, integrate roles and responsibilities, outline service requirements and escalation mechanisms for both parties.

Additionally, the partnership will look to specify means to tackle operational challenges, and develop and perform service-level operations to raise operational efficiency and consolidate integration between MAWANI, ZATCA, and customers.

The deal was signed in the presence of HE Engineer Suhail bin Mohammed Abanmi, ZATCA Governor, and HE Omar Bin Talal Hariri, MAWANI President, and in the presence of senior officials from both sides.

In June MAWANI signed an agreement with DP World to establish a new fully-integrated smart logistics park in Jeddah Islamic Port.

Jeddah Islamic Port has boosted trade with Morocco through deploying six new shipping lines and services.
