Red Sea Gateway Terminal (RSGT) announced the arrival of the first consignment of new advanced terminal equipment, which includes terminal trucks and trailers that will accelerate and speed up port and quay operations at the Northern Part of Jeddah Islamic Port (JIP), the biggest and busiest port in Saudi Arabia.

Jeddah Islamic Port is the primary port of call and trade conduit for trade and shipping in and out of the Kingdom via the Suez Canal.

The delivery of the new advanced machinery follows the recent signing in December 2019 of the 30-year concession mega contract valued at SAR 6.6 billion by RSGT with the Saudi Port Authority (Mawani) to redevelop and modernize the Northern Part of Jeddah Islamic Port.

The new Terminal Trucks and Trailers, the newest of its kind in the Kingdom, come equipped with the latest and most demanding safety features, which will significantly contribute to increasing productivity and performance at JIP.
