The Port of Salalah in Oman is celebrating its 25th anniversary with a remarkable track record of growth and productivity.
The port has experienced significant growth in both container and general cargo volumes, as per its latest statement.
Its container terminal is expanding to accommodate this growth, while the general cargo sector has reportedly seen a remarkable 26 per cent increase in the first half of 2023.
This growth puts the port on course to break its own annual record.
Keld Mosgaard Christensen, CEO of the Port of Salalah attributed the success to training and development.
“We strongly believe that employee development is not only crucial for their individual career progression but also for the overall success of our organisation,” he stated, while underscoring the recent launch of the Tamkeen Talent Development Programme as a testament to the port’s commitment to nurturing talent and implementing Lean business practices.
Last month, APM Terminals (APMT), which holds 30 per cent equity in the Port of Salalah, partnered with a sea-air logistics solution via Oman to enable cargo moving from Colombo, Sri Lanka, to Cairo, Egypt.
