Saudi Arabia is among the best international ports in terms of linkage to the shipping network through «Jeddah».
The trade arm of the United Nations “UNCTAD” stressed the importance of linking container ports around the world with direct links to provide mutual services if handling and shipping time and operations are to be reduced. Among the top 50 well-connected ports, the Saudi Arabian Port of Jeddah is ranked 39th. The United Nations Organization for Trade and Development said yesterday that in the second quarter of 2020, 939 container ports around the world received regular shipping services. And if all the ports have direct services between them, then there are 440,391 direct links with shipping from port to port. However, only 12,748 port of our village has such direct links, or 2.9 percent of the theoretical total.
