Work begins on new TNT hub in Saudi Arabia

New facility is expected to be complete by January 2015

NEWS, Business, Airport, Hub, Saudi Arabia

Work has begun on TNT’s new road and airport hub at Dammam's King Fahd International Airport in Saudi Arabia. 

The new facility, which will enter service by January 2015, will quintuple the size of TNT Express' current sorting and customs clearance space in Dammam, allowing for a ‘significant improvement in customs clearance efficiency and speed’.

When complete, the Dammam site will become TNT Express' flagship clearance gateway into the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

The facility will give the company 4,800m2 of sorting and customs clearance space within a 10,000m2 building, compared with the 1,000m2 space currently shared by TNT Express with other operators.

TNT Express will invest € 9.5m ($13m) in the construction and lease of the building, with 78 employees expected at the new facility.
