The Saudi Authority for Industrial Cities and Technology Zones (Modon) said it has signed an agreement under which it will establish, develop and operate 14 warehouses with flexible areas in Jeddah 1st Industrial City.
These warehouses will be operated based on the public-private sector partnership (PPP) model, which is bound to enhance quality standards and operational efficiency of services and products, and stimulate investment in industrial cities, said the Authority in a statement.
According to Modon, the project involves the construction of fully digital and automated warehouses that do not need human intervention, using the latest technology and equipment that provides access to storage units via a smartphone app (smart door locks).
These warehouses based on smart, automated systems, will provide quick and temporary logistical solutions to support industrialists and entrepreneurs, and stimulate investment in the retail sector.
The project offers the best-in-class 24/7 customer service system that provides immediate and thorough support, it added.-TradeArabia News Service
