MAWANI wins the Advanced Port Infrastructure Award 2023

The Saudi Ports Authority (MAWANI) has won the Advanced Port Infrastructure Award at the Landmarks in Logistics Awards 2023, held in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

The ‘Landmarks in Logistics’ awards are organised by ‘Logistics Gulf News’, a media platform specialising in the logistics services sector in the Arab Gulf region, to celebrate the accomplishments of leading institutions in this field.

Jeddah Islamic Port has undergone significant expansion projects and developmental concessions worth nearly 9 billion riyals ($2.4 billion) to enhance its infrastructure.

The port’s infrastructure now includes modern berths designed to accommodate the new generation of mega vessels alongside featuring automated equipment that adheres to environmental sustainability standards.

The port has also implemented initiatives to enhance its operational efficiency, such as the ‘Smart Ports Initiative’. This initiative is designed to automate operational processes through the use of advanced 5G technologies.

In October 2023, MAWANI and the General Authority for Survey and Geospatial Information signed a Memorandum of Cooperation (MoC) with the aim of raising the level of planning for joint works.

More recently, MAWANI and Saudi Global Ports (SGP) agreed to create a fully integrated logistics park covering over 1 million square metres at King Abdulaziz Port in Dammam.
