LogiPoint for the past 18 years has served customers in all sectors through both sea and land-based integrated logistics offerings, achieving profoundly competitive service levels in Saudi Arabia, improving the reliability and efficiency of the Kingdom’s trade and supply chain and ultimately enabling the country to become a key hub in the global logistics value chain.

The Jeddah Port, where LogiPoint is located, is spread over 1 million meter square and is a world class, customer-centric integrated logistics service area. Farooq stated that the port saves time and also allows for products to be re-exported without needing to pay customs.

Farooq further explained that it was an honour to be leading LogiPoint and hoped to assist the Kingdom’s drive towards achieving Vision 2030 objectives.

The company believes that the private logistics sector has multiple responsibilities to fulfill, ranging from developing capable and skill-based Saudi workforce, improving gender-diversity in a traditionally male-dominated industry, and deepen collaboration with customs and other regulatory bodies to improve transparency. These initiatives, Farooq pledged, will also be priorities of LogiPoint.
