Investing in International Connectivity

Every emerging market understands the importance of infrastructure development and logistics – both critical to sustained economic growth and competitiveness.

Demand in Saudi Arabia’s transport and logistics sector is expected to increase significantly in future with industry experts predicting 5% annual growth for international cargo, and up to 8% for air and sea cargo until 2020.

To support our successful transportation sector businesses, Abdul Latif Jameel has already developed one of the MENAT region’s largest automotive supply infrastructures.

Our central warehousing and port processing facilities in Saudi Arabia can receive and dispatch around 1,200 vehicles per day with stocking capacity for 69,000 vehicles.

We’ll double this capacity when our new processing and logistics center at King Abdullah Economic City (KAEC) north of Jeddah opens.

We also have a spare parts logistics business in Saudi Arabia to serve our domestic automotive business.

We handle over 700 sea container shipments a month with 20,000 order lines shipped per day via a ‘just-in-time’ spare parts picking process controlled by the latest barcode scanning and pick by voice technology.

In 2015, Abdul Latif Jameel moved into non-automotive logistics for the first time when the business was named as the new Global Service Provider for FedEx Express in Saudi Arabia.

With over 60 years of proven logistics experience in the region, a keen focus on customer care and service delivery, we’re a great partner for FedEx and now the premier transportation provider in Saudi Arabia to handle all its international services to and from over 220 countries.

With our state-of-the-art infrastructure, including facilities, a fleet of vehicles and an experienced team, we’ve also started a major new logistics project between Abdul Latif Jameel and Saudi Arabia’s Civil Aviation Authority in late 2015. We’re building a 5,000 square meter bonded hub facility at King Fahad International Airport in Dammam and will relocate its clearance facilities for Express Trucking Shipments from Al Batha Border to the airport. Supported by an on-site customs office, this will improve clearance times and faster transit times for customers.

On the Horizon

Our newly formed non-automotive logistics solutions business continues to grow rapidly.

We are constantly looking for new opportunities to better serve the business and consumers of our region by realizing the potential our strategic geographic position and connecting people around the world.
