Maersk inaugurates office in Sohar Freezone
Maersk has inaugurated a new corporate office at Sohar Freezone in Oman to further expand its network of integrated logistics solutions in the country. The new office – the company’s third foothold in Oman after Muscat and Salalah - will allow Maersk to get closer to its customers.
Besides sea freight, the portfolio includes land-based transports, including cross border movement of cargo, customs clearance, warehousing & distribution, cold chain logistics and air freight. The new location complements the various other initiatives Maersk has undertaken to strengthen its footprint in Oman.
In November 2022, the company added Khazaen Dry Port (KDP) to its extensive ‘port of call’ network, offering transportation, container terminal, and reefer container services enabling customers to import and export their goods easily. Around the same time, Maersk also launched a service through the Port of Salalah in Oman as a gateway to Yemen, ensuring seamless cargo movement. (ben)
