Aqaba Governor Khaled Hajjaj told Petra on Tuesday that an operations room has been opened to maintain the supply chain for foodstuffs, medicines, and all basic goods from the ports of Aqaba to all its destinations in the Kingdom.

"Additional yards were provided to store goods in ports and customs centers, and additional lanes were opened for customs clearance to facilitate the process as quickly as possible," he added.

Abdel Majid Qaralah, director-general of the Aqaba Company for Ports Operation and Management (ACPOM), said that navigation at the port operates normally in terms of receiving ships, completing customs procedures, and facilitating the movement of goods to various governorates of the Kingdom.

"About 900 trucks, during the past 24 hours, were loaded with various types of goods, especially basic foodstuffs and fodder, and dozens of containers were inspected in customs yard 4," he added, noting that the port of Aqaba will receive, during the next few days, a number of commercial ships coming from several countries, including ships of wheat, sugar, coal, stone, and fodder.
