Saudi Customs is the Governmental Authority responsible for facilitating the safe and efficient import and export of trade goods and associated services via land, sea and air in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
The Authority is committed to achieving the ambitious goals set out in Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030, which aims to diversify the Kingdom’s economy, attract international investment and drive overall growth through the adoption and implementation of groundbreaking technologies and innovative practices.
Through the application of effective and efficient procedures, Saudi Customs is committed to elevating the quality of customs services provided across its network of more than 35 ports, while working to establish the Kingdom as one of the world’s premier logistics hubs, supporting the growth and diversification of the country’s economy. It is already one of the Kingdom’s biggest employers, with a workforce of more than 10,000 across the country.
The depth and scope of Saudi Customs’ new roadmap reflects their commitment as an organization to accelerating change across all facets of their operations through the implementation of new technologies designed to simplify and automate customs procedures and deliver the very best services to clients.
Saudi Customs is also moving forward in implementing the latest technologies, and testing various solutions such as blockchain. As part of its blockchain pilot program, and in conjunction with their IT partner “Tabadul”, the Authority recently oversaw the integration of the single-window platform Fasah with TradeLens, a blockchain-enabled global shipping solution jointly developed by Maersk and IBM, as part of its pilot.
The Authority’s efforts to streamline clearance processes has ensured that 80% of all imported goods clear customs in less than 24 hours of their arrival in the Kingdom, marking a significant improvement on previous years.
It is initiatives such as these that support Saudi Arabia’s reputation internationally and positioning it as one of the world’s most vibrant, open and dynamic economies.
