Kuwait Transport & Logistics

Proximity to major regional markets, which have a combined population of 140m and $1.3trn in output, is a major advantage to Kuwait’s transport and logistics sector. The government has outlined a number of infrastructure projects and upgrades to be implemented as part of Kuwait Development Plan, with enhancements to sea and air links a major priority for the state. The country’s international airport has already seen dramatic growth in recent years, with the number of passengers that travel through it jumping from 4.76m in 2004 to 9.38m in 2013, while a new $1.2bn port facility in Boubyan is expected to serve as Kuwait’s major sea link, with 24 berths and an annual capacity of 1.8m containers.
