Alphaliner ranks Oman Container Line among best 55 companies in world

Oman Shipping Company’s container service, better known as Oman Container Line (OCL), at ASYAD Group is ranked 55th globally by the international database platform, Alphaliner, for the capacity it offers as well as its reliable services in the Gulf and globally.

This global ranking enhances the leading status of the Sultanate in maritime transport among the best countries in the world. It also reflects the government’s efforts to develop the essential infrastructure in logistics services- aiming towards achieving the Notional Logistics Strategy 2040 to make the Sultanate a global logistics center and to improve its classification in international economic indicis.

The importance of this ranking lies in the fact that it was issued by Alphaliner, an internationally recognized database platform providing updated ranking of the 100 largest container and liner operators based on capacity.

Alphaliner is also the knowledge base of first choice used by port authorities, terminal operators, logistics companies, shippers, research companies and banks and other financial institutions.

"OCL’s global ranking at 55th is a testament to the efforts the company has put over the years to link Oman to the world through providing our customers with reliable services globally. It is also a reflection of the hard work of the entire team working in this shipping company at all levels."

The OCL’s global ranking has brought the name of the Sultanate of Oman among top countries in the sector. This has become possible only due to the focus of the country’s leadership on the development of the infrastructure and logistics’ sector, said Al Nadhairi.

For his part, Wasam Al Najjar, General Manager, corporate planning at the Oman Shipping Company said, “There is no doubt that OCL entering Alphaline index among 100 global companies is a highlights the company’s role in linking Omani ports to the main global trading routes through its Oman Express Line, in addition to its role in linking the Sultanate’s ports with UAE’s through its Gulf Express line. He noted that OCL aimed to connect India and Oman to the Upper Gulf through combining OEX and GEX service, as well as inaugurating the Oman Gulf Express (OGEX) service; linking Salalah, Duqm and Sohar in Oman with Arabian Gulf ports.
