Jordan’s rail, road, sea and air transport infrastructure is undergoing a rapid transformation, with opportunities for investment in all segments. These projects seek to capitalise on the kingdom’s growing domestic market, as well as on the geographic location that has long made it a natural transport and logistics corridor for the rest of the region, including Saudi Arabia, Iraq, the West Bank, Israel and Syria. While recent conflicts over several of these borders have led to closures and some challenging times for the sector, transport remains the lifeblood of the economy, particularly in connecting the kingdom’s main port – Aqaba – in the south with the capital and with larger cities in the north.
This chapter contains an interview with Jeppe Jensen, CEO, Aqaba Container Terminal.
