Location plays a major part in Salalah's attraction as an investment destination.
Port of Salalah offers almost zero deviation from the major trade lanes of Asia-Europe, and equidistant to the growing markets of East Africa, Indian Subcontinent and the Arabian Gulf. Our location guarantees our customers with transit times that are better than other competing ports in the region.
This makes it advantageous for major shipping lines to use Salalah as a gateway for their regional networks and thereby saves cost.
Our connectivity includes a network of the world's biggest shipping lines, including Maersk, MSC, USAC and others to reach the world. This connectivity, of over 3,200 vessels per year, allows our customers to reach over 50 direct ports internationally – all from the Salalah location.
For our part, we will continue to extend and explore joint opportunities with the Salalah Free Zone and thus play a significant role in the development of the Dhofar Governorate.
