Kanoo Logistics opens distribution hub in Dammam
Kanoo Logistics has launched its brand new, state-of-the-art logistics facility near the King Abdul Aziz Port in Dammam, Saudi Arabia.
The new distribution centre features a 100,000 square meter yard and a 10,000 square meters warehouse.
The multipurpose facility contains 500 square meters of elevated staging area and 5,000 square meters of parking space.
“We at YBA Kanoo, and through Kanoo Logistics, are always looking for solutions that will benefit our customers and will help their businesses grow, therefore we chose the area near King Abdulaziz Port in Dammam to build the new warehouse since it is an ideal location to store both imported and exported goods,” said Fawzi Ahmed Kanoo, YBA Kanoo’s acting CEO.
Kanoo Logistics is a business division of Bahrain-based Yusuf bin Ahmed Kanoo (YBA Kanoo) Group.
Kanoo Logistics’ network includes both dedicated and multipurpose warehouses in KSA (Dammam, Jeddah and Riyadh), UAE (Jebel Ali, DAFZA and Al Quoz), Oman (Muscat), and Bahrain, which have a combined capacity exceeding 40,000 square meters of storage space.
It also holds open yard storage facilities in Saudi Arabia, comprising over 325,000 square meters.
The network provides storage for a variety of products including the Petrochemicals and Automotive industries, as well as Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) and has a specialised hazardous chemicals facility in Dammam.
These warehouses and yards are in close proximity to ports in each of these locations.
