January 2019

Saudia Cargo has fully gone cashless and announced that cash is no longer accepted at its stations in Jeddah, Riyadh, Dammam and Madinah.
 
The company urged clients to use digital channels and different banking payment methods such as ATMs, SADDAD, Points of Sale (POS) and bank transfers.
 
The going-cashless decision aims to give customers more flexible settlement options, save their time and improve the quality of services.
 
Saudia Cargo CEO Omar Talal Hariri said the company works constantly to develop its digital services and introduce faster payment methods in line with the objectives of the Digital Transformation Program and the Vision 2030.
 
“We have introduced the SADDAD system which customers can use to pay for handling service fees by using the code (183) and have provided other payment options such as official banking channels. We have also automated export and import procedures and reduced the required paperwork,” he explained.
 
Saudia Cargo announced in mid-November a number of interactive services at its website www.saudiacargo.com, which allows customers for the first time to get an idea about the Ground Handling Services Unit’s functions. The unit provides logistic support to all airliners in addition to shipment tracking services through using Airway Bill number.
