Riyadh, March 27, 2023, SPA -- The Port of Jazan has received 19,100 cattle, weighing 3,118 tons, on board the cargo vessel Abu Yasser II from Djibouti.
After clearing the necessary hygiene checks by national health authorities, the incoming livestock shipment will make its way into local markets in time for the holy month of Ramadan. The cattle imports are crucial in strengthening the Kingdom’s food security, which remains a key deliverable of the Saudi Ports Authority (Mawani) under the National Transport and Logistics Strategy (NTLS).
The Port of Jazan is a strategic trade gateway to the Kingdom’s southern region, with easy access to global shipping routes connecting the East and West. With unmatched facilities and superior capabilities, the Red Sea-based commercial hub handled over 1.7 million tons of cargo and cattle in 2022.
