MAWANI, Tabadul to create new Port Community System

The Saudi Ports Authority (MAWANI) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Saudi Electronic Information Exchange Company (Tabadul) for a new Port Community System.

Under the partnership, both parties said they will work to bolster the future of trade, increase competitiveness, and achieve sustainable growth in the Saudi ports.

The MoU aims to expand the portfolio of services at Saudi ports from 46 to 150, besides leveraging modern technologies – including geospatial technologies and Internet of Things (IoT) – and offering swift, secure, and advanced invoice and payment services.

MAWANI said the agreement will involve restructuring the processes and operations at Saudi ports according to global standards, along with boosting connectivity with global ports and implementing smart gates and emerging technologies in the Port Community System.

This partnership is part of the Smart Ports initiative introduced by MAWANI to implement emerging technologies and drive digital transformation in the logistics sector in line with the objectives of the National Transport and Logistics Strategy (NTLS).

Earlier in September, MAWANI, in partnership with the Emirate of Makkah Province, officially launched the new Gate 9 expansion at Jeddah Islamic Port.

The port authority said the project is set to enhance the port’s operational efficiency using sustainable development standards, while offering best-in-class services to improve customer experience.
