Logistics in Saudi Arabia

Overview by Globlatrade.net:
Main Useful Means of Transport

Saudi Arabia has a well-developed transport infrastructure, which mainly includes airways, roadways and maritime transport.

However because of the large distances that separate Saudi Arabia's main cities, air travel is the preferred method of travel within the Kingdom. There are three major, modern international airports in the Kingdom: King Khalid International Airport in Riyadh, King Abdulaziz International Airport in Jeddah, and King Fahd International Airport in the Eastern Province. A large number of international airlines operate from these airports. In addition, there are 22 regional and local airports. Taxis, rental cars, and limousines are all readily available at airports.

Saudi Arabia also has an impressive and expanding network of highways which connect the country's major regions and cities. Driving is done on the right side of the road.

There are seven modern major ports in the cities of Jeddah, Yanbu, Dammam, Jubail, Jizan, Rabigh, and Dhiba, some with their own separate commercial and industrial facilities. The Jeddah and Dammam ports are state-of-the-art commercial ports. The Yanbu and Jubail ports are state-of-the-art major industrial ports with modern bulk cargo and container handling capabilities. Ras Tanura, an oil super-terminal on the Gulf, is one of the largest in the world.

Railway network in the Kingdom is not so well developed and is going through an expansion programme.
