Duqm Port seeking bids from terminal operators, logistics service providers

Oman's Port of Duqm is set to invite international companies to operate a number of terminals, as well as invest in tank farms and logistics infrastructure at the sultanate's newest maritime gateway on the Arabian Sea, Oman Daily Observer has reported. Port of Duqm Co (PDC), a joint venture of the Omani government and Consortium Antwerp Port (CAP) of Belgium, will initially start up these terminals, but eventually hand them over to operators when business picks up at the port, said the chief executive of PDC, Peter Broers. "We are looking for operators – companies that want to run terminals for containers, multipurpose cargo, bulk cargo, and liquid cargoes, as well as logistics operators to provide warehousing, storage, equipment and tank farming services," he said. "Later on, these terminal operators will be stakeholders in the port, while Port of Duqm will assume the role of regulator and port authority," added Broers.
