The Port of Salalah plays a very large role in improving network costs within the global supply chain.
Driving our strategy for developing of the Port of Salalah is a 20-year master-plan (2011-2030). It envisions the establishment of the Salalah Hub that includes a railway connection and distribution centre, food reserve and processing centres among warehousing and other logistics facilities, dedicated terminals for cruise tourism and liquid storage along with dedicated facilities that can boost SME entrepreneurship for the community.
Within this period, we envision the free zone and surrounding area leveraging our role dramatically.
We expect to be a greater hub for regional logistics, especially with the GCC rail in the pipeline. This would position Salalah to become the entry-point for the region, saving time, money and in some cases, CO2 emissions.
