Saudi Arabia is not an industrial country, where contribution of GDP from manufacturing industry is low. Because 3PL is a part of manufacturing, the opportunities for 3PL will be not so attractive. But for the FMCG industry, where this country depend on other countries source, there are great opportunities for stocking and distribution of goods, example: Wal Mart and Muscat.
Finally as Saudi Arabia is preparing their country as a touristic destination, there is great market which can be tapped in 3PL, 4PL and tourism.

Basem A EL Chahal, Manager, Saudi Arabia
The 3PL transportation business in SA is booming currently and there is too much demand with too little professional service providers.
Warehousing 3PL is not that mature yet, but has a great future in such a huge market where manufacturing is increasing dramatically.

Abdullah Fuentes, Analyst, Saudi Arabia
The outsourcing concept is known to most industries, especially in the petrochemical and chemical industries, but the implementation is happening at snail pace.
3PLs are mostly in the logistics arena where transport services, courier service providers are currently in shortage due to manpower. In transport, 3PL have enough transports but not enough drivers to operate them.

3PL Situation in Saudi Arabia
Dammika Perera, Manager, Saudi Arabia
Most of the Saudi Arabian companies do there own distribution and very few companies offer 3PL services as of now. But there is huge potential in setting up 3PL services with modern technology and WMS systems.
