Top 8: Shipping Ports in Saudi Arabia

by Robeel Haq on Apr 4, 2010





1. King Fahad Industrial Port, Jubail

Saudi Arabia’s transformation from a raw material exporter to a gas/oil industrial producer led to the construction of King Fahd Industrial Port in Jubail in 1974. Being located adjacent to Jubail Industrial City, the port was designed for importing raw materials required by local industries, also for the export of the industrial products such as petrochemicals, refined petroleum products, chemical fertilizers and sulphur.

Total tonnage in 2009: 43,089,768 (compared to 42,461,203 in 2008)
