Strategically located on the Red Sea coast on one of the world’s busiest maritime shipping lanes and with direct access to extensive transportation networks and urban centers, the port delivers world-class service by means of state-of-the-art infrastructure, automated systems and processes with an experienced and well-trained workforce. Facilities of the port include multipurpose terminals for containers, roll-on/roll-off (RO/RO) and bulk & general cargo. It contains more than 30 berths with 18 meters depth, all equipped with highly sophisticated machinery to ensure an efficient top-quality operation.
In October 2017, King Abdullah Port awarded a 25-year concession for its first cargo and breakbulk facility to AMSteel, a specialist in port operations and steel handling. With breakbulk activities initiated in January 2018, King Abdullah Port has seen such activities expand rapidly.
In its few years of operations, King Abdullah Port has come to handle significant amounts of clinker, rebar, scrap and project cargo and is realizing its role as an economic booster. Its state-of-the-art facilities along with
its connection to the Saudi Land bridge make it extremely attractive to both importers and exporters. At the same time, not only has it generated jobs at the port itself, it has created opportunities for manufacturing and import/export companies to establish operations within the port area fostering the growth of support industries as well.
Once fully built, King Abdullah Port will be able to handle 20 million TEU, 1.5 million CEU and 15 million tonnes of clean bulk cargo every year.
