SAL is a driver of transformation in the logistics sector, supporting Saudi Arabia’s evolution into a diversified economy, connected to global markets by corporate networks and increasing flows of goods and capital.

Vision 2030 recognizes that investment in logistics infrastructure and efficient processes surrounding it produce a multiplier effect, creating entrepreneurial opportunity, encouraging trade and investment, and enhancing productivity and competitiveness. The Vision aims to transform the Kingdom into a regional logistics hub, efficiently linking trade across Asia, Europe, and Africa.

Through the National Transportation and Logistics Strategy (NTLS), the country is rolling out a coordinated program of investment in air, sea and land infrastructure, in industrial zones, and in improved connectivity between economic hubs.

The sector is expanding in tandem with an increasingly vibrant domestic economy, with a growing and youthful population powering private consumption. E-commerce is growing rapidly from a relatively low base, while Saudi Arabia – as the most populous market in the Gulf -- is well positioned to become the natural hub for transshipment to the wider region.
