A trial of the new corridor designed to facilitate multi-modal transport of cargo through JIP has been carried out.
The trial shipment arrived by seafreight at Logipoint’s Bonded and Re-Export Zone at JIP and was shipped onwards to its final destination in the Netherlands by airfreight through King Abdulaziz International airport.
LogiPoint ceo Farooq Shaikh said, "The bonded corridor facilitates trade for customers by providing a multimodal bonded access to regional target markets combining sea, land and air freight. It also gives Jeddah a significant advantage to compete in the transhipment cargo segment.”
The corridor was developed with the support of the Saudi Customs and Jeddah Islamic Port and in line with vision 2030 and the National Industrial Development and Logistics Program (NDLIP), the success of this shipment increases the competitiveness of the region.
