New bombardier trains should be immediately delivered to the territory of Saudi Arabia

As a result of the preliminary agreement, the DHL freight company must deliver nearly 50 sets of trains to the territory of Saudi Arabia, Riyadh. For many years, the transport service forwarded cargo by air and sea. The delivery department plans to send each train by DHL to Mexico separately, using the sea freight network, using a Canadian intermediary company.

The length of the distance is 14,000 kilometers and will be treated as one of the longest logistics routes.

The third largest and most populated city in the country is Dammam. It is the capital of the eastern region of Saudi Arabia, located on the shore of the Persian Gulf. Together with Dharan and Al-Khobar, it is part of the Triple City. Thus, a large urban agglomeration was formed.

Historians have found out that the first settlements appeared here more than 2 thousand years ago, but all more or less obvious traces of ancient peoples are covered with sands.

At the beginning of the 20th century, a small village appeared on this place, the inhabitants of which were engaged in fishing and pearl mining. A small port appeared on the shore. In the 1930s, the largest oil field in the world was discovered on this place. The village quickly turned into a modern metropolis.

Not far from the coast are the islands of Darin and Tarut, on which are preserved the ruins of ancient port buildings and the remains of the old fort.
