New shipping service links all Omani ports to UAE

Jun 28, 2016
Oman Shipping Company (OSC) has launched a new freight service linking Omani ports to the United Arab Emirates.

The new fortnightly Oman Express Service run by OSC subsidiary Oman Container Lines is the first freight feeder operator to connect all Omani ports.

OSC Chief Executive Tarik Mohamed Al Junaidi said the new service will be cheaper and faster than the road transport that currently handles all freight to the interiors.

The main objective of OSC - one of the Gulf’s biggest ship operators - is to connect Oman with the rest of the world by running a regular service linking the Omani ports of Salalah, Duqm and Sohar, with the UAE.

Oman Express Service is using its own multi-purpose vessel to carry containers, break bulk and project cargo and has a capacity of 350 TEUs or 8,000 tonnes of general cargo.

Mr Al Junaidi said the ambitious move will drive the development of freight handling facilities in both Duqm and Salalah ports.

“The Oman Express Service will revolutionise the trade movement in Oman by linking our main ports with one fast and efficient freight feeder operation,” said Mr Junaidi. “We are looking to harness the power of our coastline and maximise Oman’s strategic location, to boost both trade within the Gulf and worldwide.”
