King Abdullah Port: Full readiness to receive heavy container traffic before the holy month of Ramadan
King Abdullah Port has concluded its readiness to receive the heavy container traffic that precedes the holy month of Ramadan every year. This time of year constitutes a vital season for trade activities in the Kingdom, including various market sectors, in particular food, clothing, electronics and others.
During the period preceding the holy month, commercial traffic in Saudi Arabia will benefit from King Abdullah Port’s massive capacity, which currently stands at 3 million standard containers annually. This capacity will contribute to preventing an accumulation of containers and to ensuring the smooth flow of goods to the Saudi Arabian markets.
In May 2015, King Abdullah Port announced the opening of its fourth berth as planned. The opening had a great impact on increasing the capacity of the container terminal, which has berths that are 18 meters deep and have an overall height of 1,470 meters. King Abdullah Port also has storage space reaching approximately 1,600 meters in length and 450 to 550 meters in width, allowing the storage of 94,338 dry standard containers at once. It also has a storage capacity of 5,250 standard refrigerated containers at once, and is subject to the highest control standards for storage quality.
