We are pursuing the development of a performance-based criteria, training and educational standards in alignment with the planned growth of Oman’s logistics industry. We will accomplish this by reviewing international logistics training programs and accreditations and devising integrated systems of training standards, accreditation processes and procedures for logistics.
By reviewing employment regulations affecting various sectors within our industry, we aim at enhancing employment retention whilst also ensuring that employment legislation supports the growth of our logistics industry.
We believe in achieving and sustaining logistics growth by defining core organizational functions and roles and skill sets by sector, measuring, monitoring and forecasting demand for industry functions.
To support the growth we envisage, we are leading the development of performance criteria and training and education standards in alignment with the forecast and planned growth of the Oman logistics industry. We accomplish this by reviewing international logistics training programs and accreditations and devising an integrated system of training standards, accreditation processes and procedures for logistics.
We are also reviewing all current logistics courses with a view to proposing or recommending change and encouraging and supporting the development of a professional logistics association.
By reviewing employment regulation affecting the various sectors of the logistics industry, and ensuring that employment legislation remains appropriate and that it matches or exceeds international practice, we also ensure that employment legislation supports the growth of the Oman logistics industry and only encourages its development.
As part of our commitment to bolster logistics as a productive career, we are establishing a Center for Logistics Career Information. As part of this initiative, we will develop a data bank that will publish all logistics jobs and development work opportunities that will support a logistics awareness program within government, academia, schools and colleges.
As part of the SOLS 2040 strategy, we abide by international best practices by establishing a clear two-way communication while simultaneously ensuring that our logistics strategy not only meets but exceeds its employment goals.
ASYAD works to identify areas of academic research in conjunction with the Research Council, while making sure the research is relevant and aligned with the overall logistics ambitions of Oman. We also propose, monitor and recommend appropriate methods of funding for industry-oriented research in conjunction with the Omani government.
