TNT Express constructs new road and air hub in Saudi Arabia

TNT Express and Saudi officials recently celebrated the first day of construction of the company’s future air and road hub at Dammam’s King Fahd international airport (KFIA), Saudi Arabia. The new facility, which will enter service by January 2015, will have 4,800 sqm of sorting and customs clearance space in a 10,000 sqm building, a substantial increase compared to the 1,000 sqm of space currently shared by TNT Express and other operators. When complete, the Dammam site will become TNT Express' flagship clearance gateway into Saudi Arabia.

The new facility will have dedicated customs clearance officers working in a 24/7 environment. TNT Express will invest EUR 9.5 million in the construction and lease of the building and 78 employees are expected to work there. In addition to KFIA, TNT Express will continue to use Riyadh international airport for express, King Fahd Causeway for express and freight, Dammam Freezone for freight and Al Batha border crossing for handling all land based material between the UAE and Saudi Arabia.
