The study was conducted to evaluate the efficiency of the King Abdullah port in Saudi Arabia. The study was interested in evaluating the optimal use of the port. The study used a different mathematical model to simulate and predict the future optimal use of the port to ensure that there was a maximum gain in interest.  In this work, quantitative research method was used. The model used the mean absolute percentage error and the root mean square error to evaluate the efficiency of the forecast for TEU capacity utilization. The data were collected from primary and secondary source. The study population consists of four ports located in Saudi Arabia. These ports are the Jeddah Islamic Port (JIP), King Abdullah Port (KAP), Jubail Commercial Port and King Abdul-Aziz Port (Dammam). The period of research data applied for this study is 13 years from 2012 to 2025. Results have shown that the model that optimizes port utilization is King Abdullah's economic city port, as the lowest average absolute percentage error of 0.037719389 was observed
