The Islamic Port of Jeddah has huge warehouses for cargo retention, a shipbuilding and repair yard, and 62 berths, all of which are equipped with cutting-edge technology. The berths can accommodate a wide range of goods, including animals, passengers, bulk grain, containers, and general freight. The port’s total capacity is 130 million tons, divided among its five terminals. The port has around 1700 modern cargo handling equipment.

This port, commonly referred to as Dammam port, is the largest in the Persian Gulf. It also asserts to be the second busiest port in both North Africa and the Middle East. It is only surpassed in terms of operations and capacity by the Islamic Port of Jeddah.

This port handles all of Jubail’s commercial cargo, including general, containerized, and bulk goods. This port provides an alternative entry to Saudi Arabia’s regional and worldwide markets, with a capacity of 1 million TEUs per year.
