(MENAFN - Arab News) Jubail Commercial Port has seen a 20 percent increase in the total weight of cargo transported via its port during the first half of 2014 with 5075054 tons compared to 4244648 tons during the same period in question.

Captain Fahd bin Ahmed Al-Amer director general of Jubail Commercial Port said that the total tonnage of liquid bulk cargo exports and imports amounted to 1693001 tons in the first six months since the beginning of the year compared to the same period last year when it was 1132343 tons a 50 percent increase.

Meanwhile the general cargo exports and imports declined by 38 percent where it scored 579738 tons by the end of June this year compared to 927645 tons in the first half of 2013 he noted.

Al-Amer said the number of containers (TEU) saw an increase of 26 percent for the first half of 2014 when it stood at 190156 TEUs compared to 150411 TEUs for the same period last in 2013.

According to him a total number of 393 ships have docked at Jubail Commercial Port during the first half of 2014 compared to 322 ships for the first half of 2013 with 22 percent increase.

Al-Amer predicted that the increase will continue steadily during the current year due to the efforts of the port's management in marketing and promoting the port to the private sector and via encouraging them to import and export via the port as well as the continuous development of the port's services that are offered for customers in addition to improving the mechanisms of operation which boosted the customers' confidence in the port's system.

'These achievements come as a result of the support given by the government of Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah to the ports' sector and the direct and ongoing follow-up of Abdulaziz bin Muhammad Al-Tuwaijri president of Saudi Ports Authority to enhance the performance of the Saudi ports and develop them to compete with international ports" he added.
