Shipping Routes via Oman Opened to Give Qatar Food Lifeline

Tue Jun 13 10:23:37 CEST 2017 arnekiel

(Reuters) – Qatar and container lines have launched new shipping services via Oman in an effort to sidestep a port ban in neighbouring countries and secure a food lifeline after other Gulf states severed ties with Doha last week. Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and some other Arab countries cut diplomatic, travel and trade ties with Qatar last week, accusing it of supporting Iran and funding Islamist groups, accusations Doha denies. The severing of air, sea and land transport links has closed crucial import routes for Qatar and its population of around 2.7 million people who are dependent on imports for most of their food needs. China’s COSCO Shipping Lines Co Ltd, Taiwan’s Evergreen and Hong Kong Kong’s OOCL have suspended container services to and from Qatar. Qatar Ports Management Company (Mwani) announced on Sunday two new shipping services will each run three times a week between Qatar’s Hamad Port and the Omani ports of Sohar in the north and Salalah in the south. http://gcaptain.com/shipping-routes-via-oman-opened-give-qatar-food-lifeline/

Hutchison Ports opens new Auto Gate system at Sohar Port, Oman

Thu May 18 11:15:02 CEST 2017 arnekiel

Hutchison Ports has opened a new Auto Gate system at its container terminal facility in Sohar Port, Oman. The opening will enable Hutchison Ports to modernise and fully automate its Sohar Port terminal, which features remote-controlled quayside cranes that are capable of handling next-generation 20,000 twenty-foot equivalent unit (TEU) vessels. The new system features machine-readable cards to store driver information, character-recognition cameras to read truck plate numbers and self-service kiosks for inputting shipping codes. It also uses radio-frequency identification (RFID) tags to further improve terminal security.

Government of Oman plans to build automated container terminal at Sohar Port

Thu Oct 20 10:29:17 CEST 2016 arnekiel

The government of Oman has announced plans to build an automated container terminal at Sohar Port, capable of handling five million TEUs per year, reported the Times of Oman. The current capacity of the port stands at around two million TEUs and operates at near-capacity, so the expansion in handling capabilities is much needed. Driven by the decision to move all commercial traffic away from Muscat, Sohar Port has seen record traffic figures as a result. https://www.porttechnology.org/news/Omans_5_Million_TEU_Mega-Terminal
