Agility opened a new office in Duqm, Oman, expanding its storage, freight forwarding, custom brokerage, road and transportation, and project and heavy lift capabilities.
The new office, located in the Special Economic Zone Authority (SEZAD), will service key customers in the oil & gas, chemicals, manufacturing and engineering goods sectors during their start-up stage and provide logistics support.
It will also service FMCG and retail business, sectors that are fast developing to cater to this growing city. The new Duqm facility adds to Agility’s expanding network across Oman, where it has existing operations in Muscat, Sohar, Nizwa, Salalah and Wajajah Border.
As one of a few global freight forwarders with its own customs brokerage license in Oman, Agility provides brokerage services for a number of local and multinational organizations. The company is also a leading provider of cross-border transportation, owning and operating a fleet of more than 56 vehicles to move goods to and from Oman’s ports, airports, industrial areas and logistics services area.
“Oman is a key market for Agility in the Middle East. With an expanding population in the GCC and an increasing demand for integrated logistics services, Agility’s investment in Duqm, which is ideally located as a gateway to Middle East, Africa and Indian markets, will help us better serve our national and international clientele in Oman.” Agility CEO Tarek Sultan said.
