Asyad Shipping, a member of Oman’s national logistics firm, Asyad Group, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Suzue Corporation, a Japanese shipping giant, to explore prospects for collaboration and open up mutual business opportunities.
As part of this MoU, the parties aim to pool their capabilities and potentials and expand their global logistics networks to start new projects that promote the trade and logistics sectors in both Oman and Japan.
Asyad Group seeks to maintain an active exchange of information, technologies, and know-how with the Japanese provider of integrated logistics services, Suzue Corporation which offers a wide range of shipping and transport services in East and Southeast Asia and plans to establish a joint venture with Asyad Shipping in the future in Oman.
The MoU is a clear expression of Suzue’s intent to cooperate with Asyad Shipping for Oman to become its logistics gateway to the European and African markets. With this agreement, Asyad Group looks to serve its mutual interests with Suzue, expand its network of shipping partners and collaborators, and add to its offering new support logistics solutions in East and Southeast Asia.
Asyad Group’s partnerships reflect its vision of cementing Oman’s position as a global logistics hub standing as the link of key shipping routes considered to be the transit gateway to East Africa, the Middle East, the Arabian Gulf and India.
Over the years, Asyad Shipping has dramatically evolved from initially focusing on transporting domestic oil and gas products to entering the shipping of commodities and general cargo market.
