SAL Saudi Logistics Services (SAL) is a leading integrated logistics service provider, with strong capabilities across Cargo, eCommerce, and 3PL. The Company is playing a major role in the transformation of Saudi Arabia’s logistics sector from a position of strength built over five decades as the ground cargo handling division of Saudia, the national carrier.
With a capability at all Saudi Arabia’s airports and major operations at four key hubs – Riyadh, Jeddah, Dammam and Madinah – SAL handles 99% of the country’s inbound and outbound air cargo.
A network of long-standing relationships lies at the core of SAL’s increasingly important strategic position in the Saudi economy. The Company collaborates closely with Saudia Cargo and over 50 international airlines as well as a wide range of international and government agencies to ensure reliable and efficient provision of cargo handling services. Key relationships include global organisations IATA and ICAO, as well as the Ministry of Transport, Ministry of Interior, General Authority of Civil Aviation, Saudi Customs, and the Saudi Food and Drug Authority.
SAL is investing over SAR 1.5 billion to upgrade its operations to help meet expected significant growth in air cargo over the next decade and demand for specialist services. In Riyadh and Jeddah, SAL is adding new technology-enabled, fully integrated facilities that are cutting handling times substantially and increasing capacity to handle perishables and complex products such as pharmaceuticals and vaccines.
