The Saudi Ports Authority (Mawani) has announced the delivery of new STS cranes and a new MSC service calling Saudi Arabia.

The Red Sea Gateway Terminal (RSGT) has procured three ship-to-shore (STS) cranes, bringing the total crane count to 24. RSGT has a target of 8.8m teu of installed capacity at the North Terminal under its SAR6bn concession agreement.

“The deployment of modern cranes demonstrates RSGT’s long-standing commitment to upscale the terminal’s operations and modernize its logistics infrastructure besides upskilling its workforce in support of the Kingdom’s growing influence in the global logistics landscape,” said Mawani.

Mawani also announced a new service from container line MSC connecting King Abdulaziz Port to destinations across the Arabian Gulf, South Asia, and Southern Africa on a weekly service served by vessels averaging over 6,000 teu. The service began on January 21, 2023.

Destinations include the ports of Khalifa bin Salman in Bahrain, Khalifa in UAE, Qasim in Pakistan, Mundra and Hazira in India, Port Louis in Mauritius, and Durban and Coega in South Africa.
