As sanctions against Qatar by neighbouring continue Milaha is setting up a warehousing and third party logistics operation in Oman.

The Qatar-based shipping and logistics company has set-up warehousing logistics operations in the freezone of the Port of Sohar.

Milaha has also shifted its regional transhipment operations to the Port of Sohar. Following sanctions by Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain and Egypt, Qatar’s imports and exports were no longer able to move via the UAE.

Milaha is currently calling both the ports of Sohar and Salalah in Oman. It also calls the ports of

Nhava Sheva, Mundra and Kandla in India and the company said it was “actively evaluating” the expansion of services.

“We are pleased to be setting up in Oman as we seek to strengthen our position as a leading international provider of marine transport and logistics services,” said Abdulrahman Essa Al-Mannai, president and ceo of Milaha.

We are excited about the opportunities this will bring for our partners and ourselves, especially as we add new value-add services such as distribution and LCL, among others, over the next few weeks. We will aim, as always, to provide the most cost-effective and efficient solutions to our clients.”
