The logistics sector is crucial to Saudi Arabia realizing it's Vision 2030.
The country's Transport and Logistics Initiative aims to improve connectivity in logistics infrastructure, speed up operations and boost the capabilities of the logistics sector by increasing participation of the private sector in industries that depend on logistics services.
The Kingdom has the potential to become a competitive trans-regional global logistics hub for air, sea and land logistics, leveraging its unique geographic location and tapping into globalized supply chains through the Red Sea.
A doubling of visitor traffic, in line with national tourism aspirations will introduce new major projects across the Kingdom.
