The authority reviewed and amended some port fees in light of the emergence of new services in the shipping sector, the statement added.

The new tariffs will contribute to supporting obligations of Mawani and operators in Saudi ports with competitive global indicators, including the availability of berths, increasing total crane moves per hour and total handling on berths per hour, as well as reducing unloading time.

The new tariffs will help the authority carry out several development projects.
