Saudi Arabian high speed train on-track

Almajdouie Logistics, WWPC member for Saudi Arabia, has delivered the first shipment of 13 wagons and two engines for the eagerly anticipated Haramain High Speed Rail Project.

Almajdouies team of project experts mamanged to transport the cargo from Jeddah Islamic Port to Rabigh Work Station-II, covering a distance of approximately 110km. By the first quarter of 2018, they will handle a total volume of 7584 CBM for this project.

The wagons needed to be moved with long trailers to avoid overhanging and at a low height so they could pass under bridges. Almajdouie used their new low-bed trailers, which were specially designed for the railway project.

The Haramain High Speed Rail Line is a 450 km network connecting the Kingdom’s two holy cities of Makkah and Medina via stations at the redeveloped airport in Jeddah and at King Abdullah Economic City (KAEC), near Rabigh. It has been designed to reach speeds of up to 360 kmph.

The railway is expected to supercharge KAEC’s growth as a premium residential, commercial, and lifestyle destination.
