BMI Industry View

Volumes handled on Oman's freight transport network are set to enjoy strong growth over the coming years. The sector will benefit not only from a rapidly growing economy, and consumer base, but also sizeable investment. This will not only benefit the sector directly, through the construction of a new railway line, investment in airports, and new terminals at the country's ports, but will also develop industries heavily reliant on the freight network system. An example of this is Vale's iron ore pelletising plant at Sohar, which generates considerable traffic of dry bulk ships at the port of Sohar.
