AJEX Logistics Services, the leading Middle East specialist in express distribution and shipping solutions, has signed a new partnership agreement with Dammam Airports Company (DACO) to provide logistics services from King Fahd International Airport in Saudi Arabia.

The new partnership agreement supports both companies’ strategic objectives. In 2023, AJEX has plans for significant expansion across the Middle East, with new services, operations, and facilities set to be launched across the region, while Dammam Airports Company is working on expanding the logistical capacity of its facilities as King Fahd International Airport grows in regional importance.

Dammam and the wider Eastern Province serve as Saudi Arabia’s main oil-producing hub and are home to many large industrial companies in sectors including petrochemicals, chemicals, steel, cement, aluminum, plastics, and service-providing companies.

Located just 20 kilometers from Dammam, King Fahd International Airport seeks to become a regional logistics hub, with plans underway to expand its facilities to process 3.5 million tons of cargo by 2050.

“At Dammam Airports Company, we are keen to raise the capacity of our express cargo facilities at King Fahd International Airport. This new partnership with AJEX Logistics Services supports our strategic objectives, which are aligned with the Kingdom’s Vision 2030 strategy for transportation and logistics services.”

Mr. Mohammed Al-Bayati, CEO of AJEX, said that, “Located just a few hours by road from Kuwait, Bahrain, and Qatar, Dammam, with its strategic location, is an important logistics center to the GCC region that will enable us at AJEX to enhance our capacity and service times for our customers.”

“Moreover, thanks to our new operations at King Fahd International Airport, we are vitally supporting the Vision 2030 objective to transform the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia into the preferred logistics hub in the region and a leading logistics hub globally,” Mr. Al-Bayati added.
