High levels of operational efficiency at the Port of Salalah have been recognised by the World Bank in its report on Container Port Performance Index (CPPI 2020), which has been produced by the Transport Global Practice division of the bank in collaboration with IHS Markit. Oman’s Port of Salalah was ranked 6th out of 351 ports globally according to the index, which measures the operational efficiency with which ports receive and turnaround container ships.
In a further boost, according to the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) annual Port Liner Shipping Connectivity Index (PLSCI), the Port of Salalah provides the highest liner shipping connectivity in Oman.
“We are proud, through our efficient port operations, to have contributed to raising the profile of Omani ports in the global stage. This would not have been possible without the strong commitment and dedication displayed by the staff at every level across the organisation and a strong commitment of our customers, stakeholders and business partners which has helped us retain one of the top spots globally.” commented Mark Hardiman, CEO of Port of Salalah.
