Mawani is working with Saudi Post to boost logistics development

To achieve the goals outlined in Saudi Arabia’s National Transport and Logistics Strategy, the Saudi Ports Authority, also known as Mawani, has entered into a strategic partnership agreement with Saudi Post to manage the Authority’s postal requirements.

The agreement was signed by Majid Al Malik, vice president of shared services and digital transformation at Mawani, and Rakan Al-Daifallah, general manager of government sales, the Saudi Press Agency reported.

According to the report, this new collaboration between these public sector entities will leverage the latest technologies and advanced capabilities to create a high-performing and cost-effective logistics sector in Saudi Arabia.

The partnership also aligns with Saudi Arabia’s efforts to improve its ranking in the World Bank’s Logistics Performance Index.

Saudi Arabia’s national transport and logistics strategy aims to position the kingdom as a global logistics hub connecting three continents by improving all transport services, including increasing the capacity of the air cargo sector by doubling capacity to more than 4.5 million tons by 2030.

As part of this new strategic agreement, Saudi Post will manage Mawani’s mail needs through its Express Mail service, offering a tailored solution serving both the government and non-government sectors.

It will also ensure a cost-effective distribution channel for national and international activities.

In April, it was reported that Saudi Arabia moved up 17 places to 38th in the World Bank’s 2023 Logistics Performance Index.

According to the World Bank report, the kingdom has made great strides in performance efficiency through several sub-indicators such as: B. Trade and transportation infrastructure, tracking and tracing facilities, customs clearance and sea freight quality.

“This progress came with the support of the Crown Prince and the ambitious goals of the National Strategy for Transport and Logistics Services,” said then Minister of Transport and Logistics Saleh Al-Jasser.

The minister added that the strategy includes comprehensive structural reforms and qualitative strategic initiatives to strengthen operational efficiencies, which will ultimately strengthen the Kingdom’s position on the global logistics map.
