Express service connecting Oman and Southeast Asia

A vessel by Asyad Shipping has arrived at Sohar port in Oman to begin its service connecting the ports of Singapore and Malaysia with Oman

The new direct line between Oman and Singapore and Malaysia ports adds to the Asyad Group’s current lineup of direct services to China, South Korea, Sri Lanka, India, Pakistan and the wider Gulf region. The new service line is expected to make its rounds twice-monthly between the ports and shorten shipping times by allowing ships to combine cargo from ports in Malaysia, India and Sri Lanka.

New opportunities for seafarers too
“We are delighted to be directly connecting Oman and in particular the port of Sohar, with key Southeast Asian growth markets and providing exciting new opportunities to Asyad Shipping’s existing and future customers. This first-of-its-kind service, will increase delivery speed and ensure goods coming from Singapore and Malaysia have direct and easy access. ” Chief Executive Officer of Asyad Shipping and Drydock Services Dr Ibrahim Bakhit Al-Nadhairi said.

According to the Group Chief Executive Officer of Asyad Group Abdulrahman Al Hatmi, “The new Singapore and Malaysia services are an important step forward in securing Asyad and Oman’s position as a global logistics leader and gateway to growing consumer markets, it serves to demonstrate that ASYAD offers one of the most competitive, advanced, efficient and technologically-integrated logistics solutions worldwide.”

This new line brings hope for more jobs for seafarers as the Asyad Group targets to become a global leader in logistics solutions. The new direct line seems to hint that there would be more expansions to the direct services by the Group. For now, we just have to wait and see.
