The Port of Sohar has entered into an agreement with Arkan Sohar Logistics to develop a container freight station (CFS) with bonded, and non-bonded, temperature controlled and ambient storage facilities. The new warehousing and storage complex will cover an area of 26,000m2 and will be designed to speed up cargo flows.
Services offered will include cross stuffing for import, re-export and transshipment cargo, lashing, crating, staging, labelling, re-packing, and order processing.
Ali al Muttawa, CEO of Arkan Sohar Logistics, said: “Our experience in operating CFS and warehousing facilities for frozen commodities will benefit Sohar Port’s clients and ensure they can meet the needs of a growing consumer market by handling goods safely and securely and providing end-to-end logistics solutions. Our facilities can be customised to suit their requirements, and by maintaining shipping containers, we are able to increase cost efficiency and keep businesses moving without delays caused by damaged goods, during processing or transportation.”
