It is noteworthy that the special integrated logistics zone in Riyadh was inaugurated in October 2022 by His Excellency the Minister of Transport and Logistics Services, and the Chairman of the Board of Directors of the General Authority of Civil Aviation, Engineer Saleh bin Nasser Al-Jasser. As an extension to the initiatives launched by His Royal Highness the Crown Prince, including the National Initiative for Global Supply Chains, it is a testimony to His Royal Highness’ support for the private sector, and is a major step towards achieving the economic goals within the framework of the Saudi Vision 2030 enhancing the role of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia as a regional logistics center linking three continents.
The integrated logistics zone includes advanced sorting systems that provide direct links between investors, suppliers, customers, and government agencies, which will contribute to accelerating the time it takes to process inventory managed by the supplier, rendering the process more flexible and cost effective for investors. The special integrated logistics zone allows its tenants to deliver product to customers within four hours, at a lower cost and shorter time as compared to shipping products from outside the Kingdom.
