Welcome to the Saudi Transtec 2016 Conference!
DEVELOPING SAUDI ARABIA AS A CENTRE OF
LOGISTICS EXCELLENCE FOR THE MENA REGION
Supported by the Saudi Ministry of Transport and Asharqia Chamber of Commerce
Taking place on the 5-7 December 2016 in Dammam we are proud to announce the latest details of the 2016 Saudi Transtec Conference!
Now in its 7th year and with the support of the Saudi Ministry of Transport, the two day conference will bring together senior stakeholders from across the KSA & GCC to address the major commercial, regulatory and technical issues facing the industry in the region today.
With record levels of planned investments into the KSA's transporation and logistics sector, the future potential for Saudi Arabia as a logistics gateway to the GCC seems assured. Strategically located as a MENA hub, the KSA provides a supply chain nucleus that has taken huge steps in recent years to become a world leading centre of excellence - from heavy industry and oil and gas to the export of consumer goods, the KSA remains an attractive supply chain partner for the Gulf region.
With an anticipated $190 Billion investment budget allocated across a number of strategic projects, including the logistics, road and rail sectors as well as port and airport development, this impressive growth is only expected to increase. Planned infrastructure projects are ambitious and by 2025 the KSA's airport, rail, road and port infrastructure will help the country become a regional logistics hub unparralleled in the MENA region. From the development of new air freight terminals to the expansion of seaports and development of an increased rail network, the furture seems very bright indeed.
We are pleased to announce a number of new additions to the conference programme including interactive panels, briefing sessions and interactive scenario based training.
As the importance of Saudi Arabia as a key logistics partner grows the conference will allow attendees to help form the debate, assess the future prospects for the Kingdom and arm attendees with a detailed picture of the opportunities available to those looking to consolidate existing operations or enter the market.
