Mawani adds new RGI service with a capacity of 130 mn tonnes



The Saudi Ports Authority (Mawani) has announced the addition of a new service dubbed ‘RGI’ by Unifeeder to Jeddah Islamic Port, establishing a vital connection between the kingdom and Indian ports. This move reflects investors’ confidence in the kingdom’s ports, supports maritime transport and logistics services, and confirms the status of Jeddah Islamic Port and its capabilities and advantages.


With a throughput capacity of 130 million tonnes, this port is the kingdom’s leading port for exports and imports, and the first re-export point in the Red Sea, with 62 multi-purpose berths. The new shipping service connects Jeddah Islamic Port to the ports of Mundra and Nhava Sheva in India, Jebel Ali in the UAE, and Sokhna in Egypt, through regular weekly trips, with a capacity of up to 2,824 standard containers.


Development works in 2024 have concluded in the port’s North Container Terminal, with investments amounting to SR6.6 billion (USD $1.76 billion). The development work enhances the port’s operational capabilities, increasing its capacity in light of a developed infrastructure, and improving its logistics services efficiency.


These efforts align with the objectives of the National Transport and Logistics Strategy (NTLS) to solidify the kingdom’s standing as a global logistics hub bridging the three continents.
