Mawani and LogiPoint to launch two warehouse complexes in Jeddah Port

The Saudi Ports Authority (Mawani), has partnered with the real estate company and subsidiary of Saudi Industrial Services Co (SISCO), LogiPoint, to build two new warehousing complexes on a site of 43,000 m² in the bonded and re-export zone at Jeddah Islamic Port.

This investment of more than US$40 million aims to enhance the Saudi Arabian port's infrastructure and operating capabilities, expand its capacity, and enable logistical efficiency.

The project also represents the first phase in LogiPoint's ongoing infrastructure development plan, worth US$150 million over the next two years, according to a statement. 

Village V, a multi-purpose 24,500 m² warehousing complex with zones for handling frozen, chilled, ambient, and dry cargo, will introduce a dedicated zone able to handle pharmaceutical goods inside the Jeddah Islamic Port. Additionally, the new zone is anticipated to enable LogiPoint to extend its labelling, re-packing, and consolidation services to its clients. 

Regarding the second warehouse complex, Village VI, it is an 18,700 m² facility that has been designed to the specifications of Aramex, the provider of comprehensive logistics and transportation solutions. 

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