Setting Course for the Future

SOHAR held its first Port Management Program recently. The weeklong course was designed to showcase the many activities undertaken at the Port and in the Freezone. It gave attendees insights into the skills and expertise they might need to manage a major international shipment hub like SOHAR in the future.
Participants learned more about the management of projects, technical and engineering procedures, as well as all aspects of landside and marine operations. On hand to answer questions were SOHAR Chief Executives Andre Toet and Jamal Aziz. The Oiltanking and general cargo terminals were showcased, as was the mining giant Valé.
Speaking during the event, Andre Toet, SOHAR Chief Executive said: “I’m delighted we’re able to pass our experience and knowledge to the next generation of leaders in the maritime industry. Although the history of the modern Port and Freezone in SOHAR is relatively short, we are keen to show our commitment to creating a world-leading international hub in the Sultanate, on a par with ports in Rotterdam or Singapore.”
