Sohar Port & Freezone expansion paves way for world's mega ships

If the proposed expansion of the Sohar Port & Freezone goes ahead, it will establish the country’s status as a supply chain and logistics hub, by enabling it to welcome the world’s largest vessels in port, according to Hutchison Ports.

The proposal will form a key part of the Omar Vision 2040 and in conversation with Port Technology International, a spokesperson for Hutchison Ports Sohar said that the expansion is part of a wider strategy to place Oman on the map as home to some of the world’s most important international ports.

As well as creating local jobs and hopefully attracting foreign investment, the proposal will see the port capable of welcoming the world’s largest shipping lines with fleets of 23,000 TEU vessels.
