Currently, LogiPoint warehousing facilities are operating at over 100% utilization and hence Village V is a welcome addition.
The new facility will be built over a 24,500 sqm area with dedicated zones for handling frozen, chilled, ambient and dry cargoes. Warehousing Village V also introduces a LogiPoint first with a dedicated zone designed and equipped to handle pharmaceutical goods inside Jeddah Islamic Port.

Farooq Shaikh, the CEO of LogiPoint, believes that the company’s mission of enabling logistics and facilitating trade and economic growth by acting as a stakeholder in the Kingdom’s growth has become more pertinent than ever before. He believes that LogiPoint’s investments into infrastructure projects carry a multiplier effect for the Kingdom’s economy because of the multiple new investments these projects attract to the Kingdom. He says:
“Village 5 is going to be our most sophisticated addition yet to LogiPoint’s warehousing infrastructure inside Jeddah Islamic Port. The importance and relevance of a facility that is designed to receive, handle, store and distribute pharmaceutical goods can scarcely be overstated today. At the same time, the addition of a multi-purpose state-of-the-art warehousing facility at LogiPoint BRZ reinforces Jeddah as an integrated logistics hub internationally and demonstrates just how well we are aligned with the Vision 2030’s goal to make the Kingdom a regional logistics hub of choice. Village 5 is start of the expansion plans that is expected to increase LogiPoint BRZ’s warehousing capacity by about 150% during next 2-3 years’.
Warehousing Village V has been designed by Jamjoom Consulting in line with international logistics infrastructure specifications and incorporates the latest green building technologies to ensure compliance with environmental standards.
