Khazaen Dry Port joins A.P Moller – Maersk’s ‘Ports of Call’ network


Muscat: Khazaen Dry Port, which was established in partnership between Asyad and the private sector, announced that it joined A.P. Moller – Maersk’s (Maersk) extensive ‘Ports of Call’ network.

Joining global shipping lines, Khazaen Dry Port will further bolster its global position as an import, re-export and transhipment centre as the country presses ahead to become one of the leading logistics hubs in the region.

Underlining Asyad’s role as a market growth leader, this integration is yet another step in the Group’s plan to improve efficiency and adopt higher standards across the logistics sector. Asyad complements these efforts by providing and facilitating services that will enable local traders to effectively expand their reach to global markets and attract higher volumes of trade to and through Oman.

Juma Al Maskari, Executive Director of Khazaen Dry Port said, “By integrating Khazaen Dry Port within global shipping lines, including Maersk’s network, we are able to improve international market accessibility, facilitate trade and increase the flow of products and services to and from Oman at the touch of a button.”

“We are home to more than 80 local and global companies with an annual capacity of 50,000 TEU. This integration with a powerful global network facilitates business and trade for the private sector, providing them with operational efficiencies and cost optimisation by simply leveraging Maersk’s global routes to best suit their supply chains,” he added.

Mads Skov-Hansen, Head of Ocean Customer Logistics at Maersk West and Central Asia, said, “At Maersk, our ambition is to connect and simplify our customers’ supply chains by providing them with integrated logistics services across land, sea and air network.

“Our customers can swiftly move their goods worldwide through our network that spans over 130 countries, on more than 730 of our vessels.” He added, “Oman has been a key logistics destination for Maersk, especially when it comes to the accessibility to global markets. We have worked closely with Asyad Group over the years to foster our relationship to offer best-in-class integrated logistics solutions supporting Oman Vision 2040.”
