A.P. Moller – Maersk expands its network in Oman with a new office, the third one in the country.
Maersk’s new corporate office is located at SOHAR Freezone, and, along with the other two offices in Muscat and Salalah, covers an important part of the country.
“SOHAR Freezone was a natural choice for us to set up our new office because of its strategic location at the port and the world-class infrastructure of road network and air connectivity on offer,” commented Christopher Cook, Maersk’s managing director in UAE, Oman, and Qatar.
Maersk said it will also offer a host of services and solutions to its customers in Oman, such as landside transportation, including cross-border movement of cargo, customs clearances, warehousing and distribution, cold chain logistics and air freight.
Earlier, in November 2022, Maersk added Khazaen Dry Port (KDP) to its extensive ‘Port of Call’ network, offering transportation, container terminal, and reefer container services to import and export goods.
Around the same time, Maersk also launched a service through the port of Salalah in Oman as a gateway to Yemen.
