A promise made is a promise kept As Saudi Arabia’slatest state of art container terminal radically boosts trade flow through
a traditional gateway into the Kingdom
Red Sea Gateway Terminal (RSGT) is the newest flagship container
terminal at Jeddah Islamic Port. A world-class terminal spearheaded by the
Saudi Industrial Services group SISCO, it is also the first privately funded,
Build Operate and Transfer (BOT) port development agreement in Saudi Arabia.
Covering over 750,000 square meters, the facility was constructed to set a
benchmark advancing other port terminals around the region, exploiting
approaches such as intelligent design and layout, cutting-edge technologies and
value-added logistics capabilities; ensuring efficiency within whole supply
chain, meeting the demands of modern day trade.
RSGT is next to Logipoint (Tusdeer previously) Saudis’ first
export and re-export zone ‘affiliation’ provides a thriving integrated
logistics hub on the coasts of the Red Sea. The accomplishment undoubtedly
resonate with RSGT’s vision - to be ‘an engine of growth for the economy and
business’ by providing world class integrated logistics solutions, as well as
port development and operations. RSGT has been spearheading development at the
port. In May 2010, 5 months after trial operations, JIP was ranked as ‘4 stars’
in the same league as many of the world’s leading ports in terms of efficiency
of cargo handling, port fees, information services, problem-solving and
application of global standards.
Overall RSGT will open opportunities for customers around
the world through the provision of cutting edge solutions to fulfill their
business needs, furthermore seeking to provide shipping lines with
high-quality services enabling great improvements in container handling
productivity and turnaround times.
The biggest contributing factor to RSGT’s success is its
talents. RSGT has driven forward the nationalization of numerous jobs in
the port by training and qualifying Saudi talents both male and females
with the aim of maximizing the number of Saudis who are subject matter
experts in the port industry. These local talents add value to the company
all the way from administration to engineering and planning.
We succeed because our employees succeed.
