The Saudi Ports Authority (MAWANI) has signed a land lease contract for the Saudi Sales Company to establish a logistics zone at Jeddah Islamic Port, with a total area of 54,000 square metres.
According to MAWANI, the aim of this partnership is to enhance maritime and air connectivity, which will contribute to improving the logistics services provided, in an effort to raise the Kingdom’s classification in international indicators.
The signing took place at Jeddah Islamic Port by His Excellency the Chairman of the Authority, Omar bin Talal Hariri, and the CEO of Saudi SAL Logistics, Faisal bin Saad Al-Badah, in the presence of a number of officials.
The new zone seeks to improve the Kingdom’s ranking in international metrics, invest in the Kingdom’s strategic location, connect regional and worldwide markets, and profit from the integration and interdependence of marine and air transport.
The integrated logistics zone is set to provide important logistical services, integrated ecosystems, including smart warehouses, yards for storing and delivering products, and a deposit and re-export area for sorting, regional distribution, and value-added operations.
