Daifallah Abu Aqoula, head of the Association of Owners of Clearance and Transport Companies, said Sunday that the sector is also facing problems with shipping lines in terms of speed and cost of shipping, lack of familiarity with the laws of the exporting countries, or how to extract documents that facilitate the importer’s customs clearance.

The vision of economic modernization included the transport and logistics sector, which is a key point that would revive various productive sectors, as it secures the flow of the country’s imports and exports from production inputs to the transportation of goods within and outside Jordan, he said.

Abu Aqoula said that the transport sector should oversee the implementation and periodic evaluation of action plans and access feedback-supporting information, with a long, short and medium-term sector development framework, and budget allocation.

He also called for efficient allocation of investments to prioritize projects according to economic return, as well as eliminating low-economic-return projects through participatory public-private approaches.

He urged the outsourcing of design, construction and supervision, including the development of the road, sea, air and rail transport system, linking the Aqaba seaports to the far north of the Kingdom, and the strategy’s focus on infrastructure development.

He demanded more efficient services, adopting a transportation system that achieves easy movement of goods and consolidating the Kingdom’s position as a global logistics center, by promoting integration in the transport system, services and modern transport patterns that contribute to enhancing human and technical capabilities in the sector, linking to the global economy and encouraging investment.
