Saudi ports will require transport companies for adequate means of transport to speed up the loading and handling work, sources informed Asharq Al-Awsat.

Mawani recently issued a decision mandating cargo owners to use pallets to stow goods imported to the Kingdom via containers as of the beginning of next year.

The new resolution will ensure the efficiency of port services, ease of handling with specialized equipment, a streamlined transfer process, faster customs clearance, an improved customer experience, and avoidance of damaged goods.

King Abdulaziz Port in Dammam called on the private sector and transport companies to secure a sufficient number of means of transport upon the arrival of ships loaded with their cargoes to reduce demurrage.

King Abdulaziz Port authorities issued new orders after the lack of commitment of some transport companies contracted by owners of imported goods to receive their shipments directly from the ships.

It led to low rates of handling ships anchored in the port and waiting on the berth for more extended periods.

Mawani played a significant part in boosting the competitiveness of the Kingdom's economy, providing an array of growth catalysts for promoting the maritime sector.

It also seeks to fulfill the demands of national development despite the challenges facing global trade
