“Salalah Free Zone is delighted to pledge our support to the development of the new sea-air cargo corridor with Oman Air and the Port of Salalah. We are focused on creating opportunities that promote international business growth and enhance trade routes by providing competitive connectivity and efficient flow of goods and services. This is an important step in supporting the Omanv government’s policy of economic growth and diversification, and in realising our vision of becoming a global logistics hub,” Eng. Awadh added.
Ali Tabouk, Salalah Free Zone’s chief commercial officer, said, “The ongoing expansion at the Salalah port and international airport, combined with Salalah Free Zone’s established infrastructure and customer-focused value proposition will provide the favourable elements to attract industrial, trade and logistics activities. We are committed to collectively work together to attract new foreign investment in Oman.”
Salalah Free Zone and Oman Air jointly launched the new Sea-Air-Free Zone Salalah Hub at Thailand‘s Global Logistics Network conference held last month in Bangkok, presenting the concept to 300 international logistics and supply chain specialists focusing on their combined logistical and operational synergetic offering.
According to Tabouk, talks are underway with a number of international investors from Europe and Asia that have shown a keen interest in SFZ’s expansion to establish regional distribution and logistics centres in Salalah due to its competitive offering and global reach.
