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