The Saudi Ports Authority (MAWANI), in partnership with the award-winning logistics real estate company LogiPoint, a subsidiary of Saudi Industrial Services Company (SISCO), will build two new warehousing complexes in the Bonded and Re-Export Zone at Jeddah Islamic Port.

The warehouse complexes will be built on 43,000 square meters with an investment of more than $40 million. This will enhance the port’s infrastructure and operating capabilities, expand capacity, and enable logistical efficiency. This project represents the first phase in LogiPoint’s ongoing infrastructure development plan worth $106.6 million over the next two years.

Village V

Warehouse Village V is a state-of-the-art multi-purpose 24,500 square meters warehousing complex with dedicated zones for handling frozen, chilled, ambient, and dry cargo. Village V also introduces a LogiPoint first with a dedicated zone designed and equipped to handle pharmaceutical goods inside Jeddah Islamic Port.

Additionally, the Value-Added Zone will enable LogiPoint to extend their time-tested and much-in-demand labeling, re-packing, and consolidation services to their clients, allowing it to operate as a truly transformative logistics hub for the region.

Village VI

Village VI is an 18,700 square meters Built-to-Suit facility that has been designed to the specifications of Aramex, the world’s leading provider of comprehensive logistics and transportation solutions. The company offers its customers innovative services and solutions, including international and domestic express delivery, freight forwarding, and integrated logistics and supply chain management.

LogiPoint designed the two complexes as per global logistics infrastructure standards and deploys best-in-class green building technologies and practices. Renewable energy will be harnessed to power the facility while LED lighting systems and effective waste management will lower consumption levels and reduce carbon footprint.

The latest projects are expected to boost the port’s status as an international logistics center of excellence, which reflects MAWANI’s and LogiPoint’s ongoing strategy to position Saudi Arabia as a global logistics hub as per the objectives of the National Transport and Logistics Strategy (NTLS) and Vision 2030.
