Thank you for reading the news about Jeddah Islamic Port saw 12% rise in container traffic last year and now with the details
Jeddah – Yasmine El Tohamy – RIYADH: Jeddah Islamic Port (JIP) saw a 12 percent year-on-year increase in the number of transshipment containers processed in 2020, despite the global slowdown in trade due to the pandemic.
The port processed an extra 2.5 million standard containers last year, in line with the Kingdom’s ambition to become a global logistics center, the Saudi Press Agency reported.
More than 13 percent of the volume of international maritime trade passes through the port, which is considered a link between Asia, Europe and Africa.
JIP handles more than 70 percent of the goods exported and imported through Saudi ports and is ranked first among the Red Sea ports.
Saudi Arabia’s ports handle around 20 percent of the transshipment market in the region, but authorities are aiming to raise this to 50 percent by 2030.
The Saudi Ports Authority is raising the competitiveness of JIP operations by re-engineering transshipment procedures.
It canceled loading permits and restructured storage fees in order to stimulate shipping lines. It also increased the period of storage free time from 20 days to 30.
