The logistics industry in the Sultanate of Oman is being transformed to overcome infrastructure bottleneck, lack of investment in port handling capacity, poor land transport connectivity with other GCC countries. Oman logistics industry is shifting toward higher growth path due to strong support from the Government on key infrastructure projects to ease congestion and enhance capacity. As a member of the Gulf Cooperation Council, Oman is expected to benefit from alignment of trade policies and customs regulations, integration of national transport infrastructure with regional transportation corridors in the GCC region. Oman’s strategic centralized location in the Arabian Gulf makes it ideal location for conversion into a major transhipment hub for East-West trade route.

Transportation & Logistics segment accounted for around 5 percent of GDP in 2015. Services sector will be the growth engine for the Oman economy, driven by Government focus on logistics, transportation, tourism industries. Among all freight activities in Oman, sea transport is the predominant mode handled by Sohar and Salalah Ports. As part of government plan, Port Sohar has been promoted to handle sea cargo as an alternative to Muscat since 2015. Following major upgradation of port facilities, Sohar port handled nearly 50 million tons of cargo in 2015. Sea freight is expected to grow by 4.8 per cent in 2016, driven by the increasing intra region GCC trade and due to transhipment demand from Asia, Europe, and Africa. The logistics industry in Oman is expected to grow at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 6.9 per cent between 2015 and 2020.

Some of the key trends identified in the Oman logistics industry are (a) Initiated by the Supreme Council of Planning (SCP), task force has developed the Sultanate of Oman Logistics Strategy 2040 (SOLS 2040) (b) Investments on infrastructure and latest technology for upgrading the ports, airport facilities, new road links with the support of increased government spending (c) High priority is given for the development of national rail network to connect with GCC rail network to improve efficiency and reduce logistics costs (d) Trade with the GCC, Asia, and Europe is likely to remain the major driver for freight forwarding and transportation companies in the region (e) Main exports continue to be mineral fuels, oils distillation by products, while imports comprises of manufacturing goods and agriculture products
