The country has strong trade relations with Asian countries, European countries, and the US. Land freight is usually common with UAE, Bahrain, Jordan, and Egypt. Air freight is quite expensive than any other Mode and is usually used for Express Shipments.

Warehouses are concentrated in areas of Riyadh, Jeddah, Dammam, Al Khobar due to the high population and presence of Seaports. The Courier, Express, and Parcel market is driven by growth in Last-Mile deliveries and the E-Commerce segment in the country.

Dependence on Expats for Labor: The Lack of Skilled local Labor in Saudi Arabia elevated the dependency on Expats. Due to more Expat population and lesser minimum wage set by the Labor Ministry laws of Saudi Arabia, the companies prefer to work with Expats at a lesser salary in Saudi Arabia logistics Market.
Limited Progress in E-Payment Gateways: The sophistication level in the country’s e-payment gateways have been well below as compared to more developed international retail markets over the period. Cash on delivery has been the most preferred mode of payment for online shipments in KSA over the past few years.
Congestion at Ports: Uncertainties within the maritime transport industry regarding safety, security, and cyber-security incidents is still a hindrance. Although the Government is trying to automate the Process by Introducing Export, Import Platforms which has reduced a lot of waiting time, congestion and Long procedures regarding custom clearance on the Ports.
