During her visit, the President was introduced to Asyad Group’s full suite of services that encompasses ports, free zones, shipping, dry dock, as well as its competitive logistic solutions including direct container lines, freight forwarding, cold chain, e-commerce, last mile and express delivery services.

The President also toured Asyad Fulfilment Centre to familiarize herself with its operations and role as a supply chain accelerator across local and global markets. During the tour, Asyad management reviewed with Her Excellency the terms of memorandum of understanding (MOU) recently signed between Asyad Group, represented by Oman Post and Asyad Express, and Tanzania Post.

On this occasion, Nasser bin Ahmed Al Sharji, CEO of Oman Post and Asyad Express explained that this collaboration represents a solid opportunity for Asyad to strengthen the trade links and expand its logistics services into the African markets.

The President concluded her visit by commending Asyad Group’s efforts towards providing competitive and global logistic services and strengthening trade and economic relations between the Sultanate of Oman and the Republic of Tanzania.
