Riyadh – According to an announcement made on Saturday by Saleh Bin Nasser Al-Jasser, minister of transport and logistical services, Saudi Arabia has climbed 17 places in the World Bank’s Logistics Performance Index (LPI) for 2023.
According to Al-Jasser, the increase in ranks was made possible by Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman’s empowerment and encouragement.
According to the national strategy for transport and logistics services, he affirmed that the system will continue to advance under the leadership of Saudi Arabia to solidify the Kingdom’s position as a worldwide logistic hub. This was reported by Saudi Press Agency.
According to the Ministry of Transport and Logistic Services, Saudi Arabia advanced 17 rankings on the index in less than 2 years after the national plan for transport and logistics services was introduced.
