As part of its strategy for sharing best practice with the world’s leading ports, a delegation from King Abdullah Port, which also included officials from the Economic Cities Authority, Saudi Customs and the Border Guards, recently visited the UK port of Liverpool. The main aim was to learn about the port’s business processes and operating procedures.
The visit to Liverpool Port is said to have provided an ideal opportunity for delegation members, which included representatives from the public and private sectors, to learn about the business model of one of the major ports in the UK. It was also a chance to assess relevant regulations for terminal management, port operations and customs clearance procedures, as well as safety and security standards and processes.
In addition to the Liverpool Port visit, the King Abdullah Port delegation held a series of meetings with maritime sector leaders in the UK. During these meetings they discussed future cooperation between the Saudi maritime sector and its British counterpart.
