Qatar-based logistics con­glom­er­ate shifts re­gional trans­ship­ment hub to So­har Port

Muscat Daily - - NATION -

Mi­laha, a Qatar-based mar­itime and logistics con­glom­er­ate, has an­nounced that it is shift­ing its re­gional trans­ship­ment hub to So­har Port from Dubai.

Mi­laha also said that it has launched in-coun­try op­er­a­tions in Oman. The com­pany is ini­tially set­ting up ware­hous­ing and 3PL (third-party logistics) ser­vices within the So­har Free Zone, while it con­tin­ues to ex­plore fur­ther ex­pan­sion in Oman of its di­verse port­fo­lio of ser­vices.

On shift­ing its re­gional trans­ship­ment hub to So­har Port, Mi­laha is of­fer­ing com­pet­i­tive tran­sit time for lo­cal cargo and a high fre­quency of Oman to Qatar sail­ings.

“Mi­laha cur­rently calls two ports in Oman (So­har and Salalah) and three ports in In­dia (Nhava Sheva, Mun­dra, and Kandla), of­fer­ing en­hanced con­nec­tiv­ity and tran­sit times to Qatar and the re­gion, and is ac­tively eval­u­at­ing fur­ther ex­pan­sion of ser­vices,” the com­pany stated.

Mi­laha’s logistics set-up in Oman will pro­vide ex­cel­lent op­por­tu­ni­ties for lo­cal, re­gional, and in­ter­na­tional im­porters and ex­porters, and will in­crease op­tions to ac­cess the lu­cra­tive Qatari mar­ket, the com­pany said.

Mi­laha’s pres­i­dent and CEO Ab­dul­rah­man Essa al Man­nai said, “We are pleased to be set­ting up in Oman as we seek to strengthen our po­si­tion as a lead­ing in­ter­na­tional provider of marine trans­port and logistics ser­vices. We are ex­cited about the op­por­tu­ni­ties this will bring for our part­ners and our­selves, es­pe­cially as we pro­vide val­ueadd ser­vices such as dis­tri­bu­tion and LCL (Less than Con­tainer Load), among oth­ers, over the next few weeks.”
