A​bout The port​

As Saudi Arabia's eastern maritime gateway and the Kingdom's main port on the Arabian Gulf, King Abdulaziz Port in Dammam is the major entryway for cargosheaded to the country's eastern and central regions from all over the world. It has a direct railway connection with the Dry Port in the capital Riyadh. The port was built by Saudi Aramco to meet the rapidly increasing demands of the national oil industry under the orders of King Abdulaziz bin Abdulrahman Al Saud. After further expansions, the port was officially renamed from Dammam Port to King Abdulaziz Port in 1961.
