The Port of Neom in Saudi Arabia has announced it is now open for business. This is in line with Neom’s strategy and the Saudi Ports Authority’s efforts to transform local ports into globally competitive logistics hubs.

Located in Oxagon, the port, which is the primary seaport of entry to the northwest of Saudi Arabia, has been renamed as Port of Neom. Since the transfer, key capabilities have been expanded to match the rising volume of cargo coming into Neom, including container and general cargo handling.

Nadhmi Al Nasr, CEO of Neom says: ‘The Port of Neom will be pivotal to the continued commercial competitiveness, economic diversification and maritime trade ambitions of the Kingdom. Our vision is to build one of the world’s most technologically advanced, efficient and sustainable ports with the first fully integrated and automated supply chain and logistics network, and this first phase of development is a step towards realising that.’

‘The Port of Neom will be a critical enabler to the overall build, operations and economic ambitions of Neom – from the import of goods and materials during the development phase and as a new global port serving the region. This is particularly important as development accelerates and businesses across Neom come on-stream,’ adds Sean Kelly, Managing Director at Port of Neom.
