Naqel Express, Saudi Arabia’s leading express logistics and supply chain company with the largest seamless network, has officially opened its gateway facilities at King Abdulaziz International Airport (KAIA) as well as its new Pharma and Cold Chain warehouse facilities in Jeddah.
The facilities were inaugurated last month by the President of Saudi Post and Chairman of Naqel Anef Bin Ahmad Abanomi in the presence of senior company officials.
These are part of new investments of more than SR300 million ($79.89 million) being made by Naqel in the Western Province of Saudi Arabia to further facilitate imports and trading.
Commenting on these developments, Engineer Ammar Al Harbi, the Director of Gateway at Naqel Express, said: “With this expansion, we have strengthened our handling and clearance capabilities in all three major airports in Saudi Arabia. These airport facilities will facilitate smooth exports and imports into the kingdom from all around the world.”
Fahad Al Salhi, Chief of Solutions Division, Naqel Express, said: “Our new state-of-the-art warehousing facilities in Jeddah will facilitate storage, inventory control, packaging and distribution of imported goods across the kingdom and rest of the Gulf region, complementing our cold supply chain solutions offered within the region.”
The facility is equipped with the highest standards in the cold chain industry, offering various solutions catering to the specific requirements of pharmaceutical, healthcare, FMCG and other related industrial sectors, noted Al Salhi.
Besides, Naqel has also invested in the development of new warehousing and facilities in Asir and Riyadh that will support warehousing and meet the requirements of businesses from a cross-section of industrial sectors in the kingdom, he added.
With continued expansion across all Gulf countries and by increasing its footprint and presence in the source countries of the US, Europe, UK and China, Naqel aims to establish its leadership position in the region.
With these investments, Naqel is going from strength to strength with its people and network and gearing up for accelerated growth in alignment with the kingdom’s Vision 2030 goals.
