Port of Salalah partners with Maersk on a new end-to-end logistics service

Port of Salalah in Oman has partnered with Maersk to launch a new multimodal transport solution to the Al-Mazyunah free zone, as part of their regional strategy, aiming to support small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and to attract new investors in Oman and Yemen.

The new offering, extended beyond the major Arab Gulf regional gateway port, includes securing customs clearances and bonded trucking services to Salalah and Al-Mazyunah free zones hubs under carrier haulage.

"Our ambition is to serve our customers with end-to-end, integrated solutions which will simplify their supply chains," explained Christopher Cook, Managing Director at Maersk United Arab Emirates, Oman and Qatar.

"Our joint efforts with Port of Salalah aim to achieve this and we look forward to unlocking new value for our customers across the Middle East and North Africa region," he added.

The new service is planned to reduce lead time and allow access to multiple markets and the two partners are expecting that this new initiative will facilitate inland services by ensuring seamless cargo movement where customers will get single-window service till the final delivery location.

"This will not only ensure increased efficiency to the customer but also has the potential to eliminate unexpected costs including line demurrage and port storage," said an official of the Arabian Sea's port.

Another benefit arising from the partnership between the Omani port and the Danish shipping line is the multiple transport options offering that provides customers with access to Mukalla, Aden and other inland destinations in Yemen. The new offering is also well-positioned to offer a consolidated, digital and streamlined service, according to the port.

"We’re excited to be expanding our inland service capabilities to help support customers beyond the port with as part of our commercial efforts focused on our regional strategy which includes Yemen," highlighted Mark Hardiman, CEO of Port of Salalah.
