SOHAR Port and Freezone is at the centre of global possibilities. Surrounded by nations with growing GDPs and with a consumer base of over 3.5 billion, consumption is increasing daily. But being in the middle of it all is nothing without the right infrastructure.

The opportunity

SOHAR Port and Freezone offers an advantageous base for logistics operators in industries like steel, food ceramics, petrochemicals, pharmaceuticals and FMCG. Its strategic location makes it the perfect place to start warehousing and logistics operations for a wide range of products and commodities, either for transit through Oman, or for distribution into the region.

The facilities

An impressive 6,500 hectares of land has been set aside for trade and logistics, manufacturing, as well as distribution. The area has a well-planned environment and follows a carefully developed cluster approach. For example, the internal road network is designed with expansion in mind; this will allow it to accommodate large traffic streams in the future. 

On the manpower front, the city of SOHAR is able to offer a substantial workforce. The city also provides high-quality housing, education, retail, leisure and healthcare facilities to cater to the needs of its workforce.
