Oman Transport

Strategically situated at the head of the Indian Ocean and bordering Saudi Arabia and the UAE, Oman is a gateway to the GCC region – a re-distribution point and transit hub for shipments to and from Asia, the Indian subcontinent, and East and Central Africa. Transport and logistics has emerged in recent years as a pillar of the sultanate’s development and a critical driver of its economy, benefitting all sectors. Seeking to develop Oman as a leading logistics centre in the region and reduce its dependence on hydrocarbons, the government continues to generously fund logistics infrastructure programmes. This chapter contains an interview with Paul Gregorowitsch, CEO, Oman Air; and a roundtable discussion with Mark Geilenkirchen, CEO, Port of Sohar; David Gledhill, CEO, Port of Salalah; and Reggy Vermeulen, CEO, Port of Duqm.
