Sohar port holds talks with shipping agents
Muscat, August 11, 2014
Sohar Port and Freezone held a meeting with the shipping agents to discuss the relocation of all remaining commercial traffic from Port Sultan Qaboos at the end of this month.
The event was held under the auspices of Said bin Hamdoon Al Harthy, Under-Secretary of the Ministry of Transport and Communications for Ports and Maritime Affairs.
“The transfer of commercial traffic from Muscat to Sohar is a significant step in making Oman’s ports more competitive in the region, and will allow Oman to take full advantage of its prime geographic location for international commercial shipping,” said Sohar Freezone CEO Jamal Aziz.
A group of representatives was formed at the meeting to maintain open communications between agents and the Port and also set a date for the next meeting. –TradeArabia News Service
