According to a report by Business Monitor International (BMI), Oman's freight-transport sector is forecast to post solid growth in 2013, driven by the sultanate's focus on large investments in ports and airports, Muscat Daily has reported. The total tonnage throughput at the Port of Sohar is projected increase by 51.7% year-on-year to reach 47.71 million tonnes in 2013, mainly due to the transfer of commercial operations from Muscat's Port Sultan Qaboos (PSQ). The tonnage throughput at Port of Salalah is also seen to grow 6.6% to reach 7.71 million tonnes in 2013. The Salalah port will grow an average of 4.5%, until 2017, the report said.
