Chairman of the SAL Board, Fawaz AlFawaz, said the launch of the new extension comes in parallel with the National Industrial Development Program (NIDLP) – one of Vision 2030’s most prominent programmes – aiming at transforming the Kingdom into a global logistics hub, contributing to a robust and diversified economy, sustaining the growth of the sector, and creating highly competitive investment opportunities.
SAL’s CEO, Hesham Alhussayen, added the new extension spans over 61,000 square meters adding more high-quality services to its existing wide range of ground handling services and including different state-of-the-art cargo facilities according to the industry’s highest international standards. He also added the new extension perfectly provides comprehensive import and export services, medical and food cold chain services, dangerous cargo services, and valuable cargo services under world-class security measures and ultramodern automated ground handling systems.
The new extension also features effective cold chain facilities and new spacious storage facilities with an impeccable infrastructure for the special and highly sensitive cargo. The Jeddah station extension is expected to increase SAL’s annual cargo capacity to over 800K tons in 2030 while providing retailers and companies new premium cargo services at KAIA in Jeddah.
