Damman, the nearest port to Ryadh in Saudi Arabia, is under heavy pressure with a backlog of freight shipping containers causing congestion and delays.  A second container terminal is being developed, but meanwhile shipping lines and freight forwarders have stopped accepting bookings to Damman.  Cargo volumes to Saudi have been growing strongly in comparison with 2011.
