SOHAR looks to Singapore

July 17 - SOHAR Port and Freezone has announced its intention to strengthen economic interests with global shipping powerhouse, Singapore.

Speaking at the SCM Logistics and Manufacturing World 2014 event, commercial executive Edwin Lammers also touched on plans to establish SOHAR as the gateway to a new trade corridor that will leverage on the port's unique location to connect Asia, the Gulf and the USA, through Oman.

The Gulf is already Singapore's seventh largest trade partner, and together with its reputation as a world-leader in handling global freight and logistics operations, SOHAR's attendance at the SCM event provided a glimpse into the global strategy that is powering Oman's premiere industrial hub.

"We are ready. It is that simple. Many of the world's biggest shipping companies such as Maersk Line, UASC, CMA, and APL know it, and already operate from our world-class terminals," said Lammers.
