MAWANI announces Shanghai, Singapore additions to Gulf China service


The Saudi Ports Authority (MAWANI) has announced the addition of two new port calls, Shanghai and Singapore, to the Gulf China Service (GCS) in a bid to increase trade operations in King Abdulaziz Port in Dammam.

GSC is a direct weekly service operated by Pacific International Lines (PIL), connecting China with the Gulf area in the Middle East.

MAWANI has recently added seven new shipping line services to strengthen Saudi ports’ connectivity with logistics networks around the world in line with the objectives of the National Transport and Logistics Strategy and Saudi Vision 2030.

The King Abdulaziz Port has capacity to handle 105 million tons and extends for a total area of 19 square kilometres with 43 berths.

Last March, the port recorded the highest daily container throughput for any port in Saudi Arabia handling a total volume of 18,020 TEU on a single vessel.
