Exclusive site visits to Oman’s Premier Ports
The GCCSCL steering committee invites international delegates to participate in one of the three site visits of Oman’s premier ports. The visits are scheduled on 14 April 2015 (Tuesday). Interested delegates are requested to register on or before 19 March 2015, you may email us at contact@alnimrexpo.com

SOHAR Port and Freezone is a deep sea port and free zone in the Middle East, situated in the Sultanate of Oman around 200 kilometres northwest of its capital Muscat. With current investments exceeding $15 billion, it is one of the world's largest port and free zone developments and lies at the centre of global trade routes between Europe and Asia. SOHAR provides unequalled access to booming Gulf economies while avoiding the additional costs of passing through the Strait of Hormuz. The existing road network and the future rail system and airport provide direct connectivity to the UAE and Saudi Arabia, as well as to the rest of the world. Equipped with deep-water jetties capable of handling the world’s largest ships, SOHAR has leading global partners that operate its container, dry bulk, liquid and gas terminals including Hutchison Whampoa, C. Steinweg Oman, Oiltanking Odfjell and Svitzer. SOHAR Port and Freezone is managed by Sohar Industrial Port Company (SIPC), a joint venture between the Port of Rotterdam and the Sultanate of Oman. The Port was launched in 2002 as a joint venture between the Port of Rotterdam and the Government of Oman and the associated Freezone was added in 2009.

The Port of Salalah is one of the leading ports in the Middle East. It was incorporated in 1997 within the Dhofar region of the Sultanate of Oman. Operations within the port include a container terminal, general cargo terminal, cruise terminal, and bulk liquid operations, making the Port of Salalah a world-class multi-purpose and multi-cargo port.

The Port of Salalah has reached a significant milestone marking its 35th millionth container handled at the port in over 15 years of operations. The port handled a throughput of 3,032,954 TEUS in 2014 and 10,313,144 tons of general cargo.  The Port of Salalah has risen to a rank amongst the world's top 30 container ports and has broken the world record for productivity twice. The port has also won local and international awards in economic development, health and safety, innovation and environmental initiatives. The port is partly owned and managed by APM Terminals, one of the largest container terminal operators in the world, making Port of Salalah a globally networked port.
Situated on the southeastern seaboard of the Sultanate of Oman, overlooking the Arabian Sea and the Indian Ocean beyond, Port of Duqm is fast becoming an important reality of the Middle East region’s rapidly transforming maritime landscape. With its deep draft, lengthy quay walls, and expansive basin, Port of Duqm has the trappings of a world-class, multipurpose commercial gateway. And as the principal anchor of a huge Special Economic Zone envisioned at Duqm, it also has the potential to develop into one of the Middle East’s largest ports over the long term.

At the heart of Port of Duqm’s appeal is its strategic geopolitical location, far removed from Strait of Hormuz and the Arabian Gulf. It is this advantageous location that the Omani government seeks to leverage as it sets out to position Duqm as a safe, stable and business-friendly destination for industrial and economic investment. Indeed, the Sultanate of Oman – and the Port of Duqm in particular – stand to reap the benefits of the country’s international reputation as an oasis of tranquility and standard-bearer of regional peace and reconciliation.

Underscoring Port of Duqm’s strategic importance is its planned development into an integrated, multimodal logistics hub, encompassing the maritime, road, air and rail modes of transportation. An airport is under construction at Duqm, while a proposed rail-based freight and passenger transportation network, will eventually link this industrial port city with the national rail system. Utilities and services are also modern, effectively providing investors with an unrivalled setting to do business. Free-trade agreements (FTAs) with Gulf Arab states, the United States, as well as a host of other nations, add to Oman’s investment
