Asyad Group, Oman’s global integrated logistics provider, launched a tender for the construction of phase one infrastructure for the highly anticipated Muscat International Airport Free Zone.

Supported by this interconnected network of logistics hubs, the coming free zone will offer the ultimate support for air freight and seamless access to supply chains that extend from Oman to the biggest global markets, ideal to transport pharmaceuticals, food products, e-commerce shipments, and other goods.

Faisal Ali Al Balushi, Director – Muscat International Airport Free Zone at Asyad Group, said: “We invite all local companies to submit their bids and take part in this vital project, and we look forward to building our partnership with the private sector.
