    Gentlemen / Importers of medicines

These vehicles are currently available at King Khalid International Airport, King Abdulaziz and King Fahd International as a first stage, where the authority will participate with the company in Evaluating the project and studying the possibility of generalizing the vehicles to all international airports in the Kingdom so that the largest number of importers can benefit from them and the mandatory application will start from the date (1/8/2020 AD) for drug importers using these Arabs It is necessary to transfer medication consignments to avoid being rejected due to the rise in temperatures from the moment they descend from the plane until it reaches the warehouses designated for storage at the airport to be inspected and the procedures for clearing them can be done, and this can be coordinated with airlines that transport the consignments or with the Saudi Logistics Services Company through the e-mail below:​
