The Oman Post ASYAD Express, a member of ASYAD Group, has entered into a Service Level Agreement (SLA) with SOHAR Port and Freezone, the rising gateway to the GCC region, to open the company’s first service center for postal and eCommerce services.

The SLA was signed by Nasser Al Sharji, Acting Chief Executive Officer of Oman Post ASYAD Express and Omar Al Mahrizi, CEO of SOHAR Freezone. With the launch of the new center, the Oman Post ASYAD Express aims to fulfill its plan to offer a comprehensive logistics network locally and regionally.

“The new Oman Post ASYAD Express service center in SOHAR Port and Freezone is a key facility on our list of investor-friendly services. This is an extension of our previous collaborations, as we already have more than 200 post offices. Addresses across the development to ensure we continue to provide unique services and outstanding amenities to our growing base of businesses.”

“The opening of the new center is part of Oman Post ASYAD Express’s strategy to continue expanding our network ensuring our products and services are available to our customers across the Sultanate. Our suite of postal and logistics services is delivered with a focus on quality, convenience, and the know-how locally and internationally,” said Nasser Al Sharji, Acting CEO of Oman Post ASYAD Express.

Under the SLA, the Oman Post ASYAD Express will get access to SOHAR Port and Freezone’s database of investors in order to promote its services and businesses. Once the service center commences its operations, Oman Post ASYAD express will carry out fast track procedures to allow businesses in the development to benefit from postal and logistics services including P.O Boxes, domestic and international document and parcel delivery, eCommerce and fulfillment services.

Being one of the fastest-growing ports, the SOHAR Port and Freezone has generous space that is readily available and filling up fast. The first phase of the Freezone is almost fully leased out, three years ahead of schedule, and tenant companies are already getting the benefits of unique access to land, low-cost energy, and a skilled workforce.
