President of Saudi Ports Authority (Mawani), HE Eng Saad bin Abdulaziz Al-Khalb, announced the launch of the 200ha Al Khomra Logistics Zone – Saudi Arabia's largest integrated logistics hub – during the third Saudi Logistics Conference 2019, being held on 13-15 October in Riyadh.

According to state news agency, SPA, Phase 1 of the logistics zone – aimed at boosting investment, commercial opportunities, and development in the maritime industry – will see scalable areas exceeding 100ha being made available to investors under a leasing system.

Commenting on the launch of the logistics zone, Al-Khalb said: “The integrated logistics area is close to international trade routes, and is strategically located in the southern province of Jeddah and close to Jeddah Islamic Port, which will make it a global logistics platform and a hub linking the Middle East, Europe, and Africa.”

The logistics zone will be located along the Red Sea Coast, which taps into more than 13% of global maritime trade, making it an important hub on the Silk Road maritime trade route launched under the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI).
