SAL announces operations of customs security areas at main airports
Saudi Arabian Logistics (SAL), a member of the Saudi Arabian Airlines Corporation, has officially begun running the operations of customs security areas across most Kingdom’s airports. The decision, which came into effect on September 10, is a part of the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed previously by the Saudi Customs and the National Industrial Development and Logistics Program (NDLP), under the patronage of Crown Prince Muhammad bin Salman.
Saudi Customs Vice-Governor Suleiman bin Abdullah Al-Tuwaijri and SAL Deputy Chief Business Development and Corporate Relations Officer Abdulrahman Ma’en Al-Mubarak signed the agreement at the Saudi Customs headquarters in Riyadh in the presence of Saudi Customs Governor Ahmed bin Abdulaziz Alhakbani and SAL CEO Omar Hariri.
According to the agreement, Saudi Arabian Logistics, which offers specialized ground-handling and logistic services, will fully operate the designated areas starting September 1, 2020. These services cover Kingdom’s main airports including King Abdulaziz International Airport, Jeddah, King Fahad International Airport, Dammam, Prince Muhammad bin Abdulziz International Airport, Madinah, Prince Sultan bin Abdulaziz International Airport, Tabuk, Prince Naif bin Abdulaziz International Airport, Qassim, Taif International Airport and Abha International Airport.
SAL has assumed control following its successful operation of the customs security areas at King Khalid International Airport, Riyadh in December 2019. The Saudi Customs will continue to deliver customs, security and supervision services. The new procedure is expected to reduce the time of import operations, improve the efficiency of cargo clearance and security process, increase the storage capacity, facilitate the cargo acceptance and delivery procedures, and enhance full coordination between both parties to offer services in line with the Kingdom’s Vision 2030, which aims to turn the country into an international leading logistic hub.
Saudi Arabian Logistics delivers ground-handling services to different local and international airliners across the Kingdom’s airports. Its multiple logistics activities include offering support and supply solutions to all modes of transport and linking them to airports.
