Port of Salalah enables sea-air logistics operations

Port of Salalah enables operation of sea-air logistics solution via Oman

APM Terminals (APMT), which has 30 per cent equity in the Port of Salalah, has partnered with a sea-air logistics solution via Oman to enable cargo moving from Colombo, Sri Lanka, to Cairo, Egypt.

The new multi-modal service aims to reduce transit times by an estimated 20-40 per cent compared to traditional east-west trade routes, and, according to the operator, could provide a cost saving of 10-20 per cent compared to pure Air Freight solution.

Time and expense savings makes this to be a “pivotal” move according to the CEO of the Port of Salalah, Keld Mosgaard Christensen.

In July 2022, the Board of Directors at the Port of Salalah appointed Keld Mosgaard Christensen as new CEO.

Four months later, Port of Salalah and Maersk carried out the first trial shipment for their new multimodal transport solution to Al-Mazyunah free zone.
