Mawani (The Saudi Ports Authority) and Jeddah Chamber of Commerce and Industry, had inked an agreement on 27thFebruary in order to set up an integrated logistics park at Al Khumrah in the South of Jeddah for about one billion riyals.

The logistics development will further bolster Mawani’s role as a key player in the national transportation ecosystem and boost its drive to position the Kingdom as a global logistics destination in line with the ambitions of the National Transport and Logistics Strategy (NTLS), alongside realizing the outcomes of the National Industrial Development and Logistics Program (NIDLP) that aim to transform Al Khumrah into a world-leading platform for logistics and supply chain activities.

Designed for optimum asset utilization, the park is set to create over 10,000 direct and indirect job opportunities in the logistics sector while strengthening Jeddah Islamic Port’s pivotal position as a major maritime hub delivering top-tier services and increased throughput capacity. The park offers move-in-ready warehouses, storage yards, re-export zones, custom storage, logistics amenities, commercial units, residential units, and staff accommodation in addition to state-of-the-art infrastructure like roads and green spaces as well as a host of other essential services.
