Innovations in the development of intelligent and sustainable port infrastructure to enhance the global maritime sector’s portfolio

EVENT DETAILS

EVENT OVERVIEW

The 2nd International Port & Marine Development Conference is set to be a catalyst for collaboration and innovation in the maritime sector, showcasing Saudi Arabia’s commitment to becoming a regional maritime hub. The Saudi government’s ambitious goals are evident in its extensive efforts to enhance maritime infrastructure and strengthen trade relations with key partners. The country’s impressive climb in global rankings, advancing eight places in annual container throughput, underscores the nation’s dedication to advancing its maritime capabilities and establishing a prominent role in international trade.

A pivotal aspect of the conference is the logistics park at Jeddah Port, scheduled for completion in 2024. This project goes beyond mere expansion, encompassing infrastructure upgrades including broadening draft depth and quay. These enhancements reflect a comprehensive approach to port development, ensuring the infrastructure aligns with the evolving needs of the maritime industry and the country’s ambitions. The Saudi Ports Authority’s $346 million Integrated Logistics Park development project emphasizes the country’s commitment to sustainable solutions, contributing to national sustainability goals. Experts foresee substantial growth in port development from 2023 to 2027, supported by the government’s determination to position Saudi Arabia as a leading force in the maritime industry.

Expansions alone are insufficient in the current digital landscape; operators must adopt a digital mindset to stay competitive. In fact, the sector is experiencing a shift towards digitization, automation, and decarbonization. To remain competitive, ports and terminals must adopt these technological trends.

In essence, the International Port & Marine Development Conference in Jeddah stands as a testament to Saudi Arabia’s dedication to becoming a global maritime leader. By bringing together industry leaders, policymakers, international experts, and stakeholders, the conference aims to strategize for sustainable industry growth, with a strong emphasis on green and eco-friendly solutions. The agenda reflects this foresight, concentrating on the dynamic activities in port development, construction, operation, and maritime logistics. Discussions will revolve around strategies to ensure sustainability and efficient infrastructure. Noteworthy projects, collaborations, and infrastructure advancements position Saudi Arabia to reinforce its standing in the maritime sector, making significant contributions to global trade and logistics.
