Khazaen Dry Port (KDP), a joint venture between Asyad Ports and the private sector, launched a less-than-container load (LCL) shipping solution. The LCL service is the latest offering introduced by KDP to meet the needs of diverse customers, particularly entrepreneurs and SMEs.
Aligned with Asyad Group’s plans to expand its shipping services, LCL is a vital service that enables clients of all sizes to benefit from flexible and cost-effective shipping solutions to carry out trade activities. This move is another step taken by Asyad Group to further integrate their supply-chain services and support the business community with end-to-end logistics solutions.
KDP inaugurated the new service by successfully delivering the first LCL shipment of industrial equipment to Gulf Agency Company – Oman (GAC), proving once again its advanced technical and human capabilities that met GAC’s high shipping standards ad processing the shipment from its entry through Sohar Port to unloading and storage in KDP’s container terminal.
Underlining the value of this addition to KDP’s service lineup, Juma Al Maskari, Executive Director at KDP, explained that “introducing quality services at competitive prices is our main focus, and LCL solutions is a targeted solution that addresses the needs of smaller businesses and entrepreneurs in line with Asyad Group’s policy. Today, our experienced teams and proven technical capabilities successfully displayed their ability to deliver an excellent LCL service to a big client such as GAC.”
As the first to benefit from the LCL solution, Manohar Chandan, Senior Manager Freight and Energy Services at GAC, said: “we found the exact service we needed delivered by KDP at competitive rates and with great efficiency. This experience has been a huge success and proved that working with KDP offers us optimal support and robust supply centers closer to our customer base ensuring supply chain sustainability for GAC.”
Khazaen Dry Port began commercial operations in 2021 as the first inland port in Oman under Asyad Group, the leading national logistics developer of the Sultanate. The Group, acting through KDP and its multiple business units, is the main driver of the Sultanate of Oman Logistics Strategy 2040 (SOLS 2040) and the objectives of Oman Vision 2040 in the logistics and supply chain industries.
