Oman’s Al Hosn Logistics and Warehousing Services has signed an agreement with Amjaad Engineering & Contracting to further expand its existing facility at Sohar Free Zone. Construction work is expected to start shortly and will take the logistics-centered area of the facility to 22,000m2, from 12,500m2 at present.
The expanded site will include the establishment of cold storage warehouses, the first of their kind in Sohar Free Zone. These will be divided into 21 chambers and will feature controlled temperatures ranging from -30° to 7°. Moreover, Al Hosn says all the warehouses will be convertible from dry to cold storage and vice versa.
Located in the Phase I area of the Sohar Free Zone, Al Hosn Logistics and Warehousing Services originally became operational in 2015. The expansion plans, due to be completed by the end of 2020, are specifically designed to bolster the potential of the existing warehouse services while creating improved facilities for clients from around the country.
