King Abdulaziz Port Dammam has been included as one of the key ports of call in the newly launched Gulf China Service (GCS), a new weekly service connecting central and south China to the Gulf region.
The new service is offered by a consortium of vessels deployed by Pacific International Lines (PIL), Regional Container Lines (RCL), and CULines (CUL), and arrived on 15 December 2021 in a Saudi Global Ports berth.
As one of the only two ports in the Middle East included in the GCS, King Abdulaziz Port Dammam plays a pivotal role in ensuring direct and efficient connectivity with China for importers and exporters in the Saudi Kingdom and the wider region.
From Dammam, the service will directly connect to Ningbo without stopping at any major ports along its route.
As the main gateway of cargo to the eastern and central provinces in Saudi Arabia, the port provides high-quality services through its advanced systems and efficient, transparent operations.
