Jeddah Islamic Port boosts decarbonization drive

Saudi Ports Authority (Mawani) has announced cutbacks in crane activity and truck TAT at Jeddah Islamic Port in line with its annual target of lowering carbon footprint at the port by 1,046 tons in 2023.

Complementing the National Transport and Logistics Strategy (NTLS), the port’s decarbonization, as part of Mawani’s Green Ports initiative, seeks to reduce energy consumption by 15 per cent through equipment electrification and diesel phaseout across the Kingdom’s trade hubs.

Through a 33 per cent decrease in average yard crane moves for every imported container that requires manual inspection as well as a 17 per cent reduction in truck turnaround times, the port further solidifies its standing as a cost-competitive and operationally efficient logistics destination at the crossroads of East-West trade.

The national maritime regulator’s strategies are inspired by the Saudi Green Initiative, a national climate action plan aiming to unite the kingdom’s push towards ecological protection, energy transition, and emissions reductions through a joint collaborative approach between the public and private sectors.
