Port consultant to help shift container services from PSQ to Sohar

Port Services Corp (PSC), the company that operates Oman's Port Sultan Qaboos (PSQ), has said the transport ministry is planning to appoint a consultant to prepare the executional steps of the shifting of container services from Port Sultan Qaboos (PSQ) to Port of Sohar, Muscat Daily has reported. The consultant will also investigate the role PSC could play once PSQ's conversion to a tourist port is complete, said PSC chairman Mohammed Jawad bin Hassan bin Suleiman. "The consultant will also be asked to study the present status of the corporation, the port, the shareholders and the alternatives for allowing the corporation to continue managing PSQ after its conversion into a tourist port, either solely or with other partners, or through the acquisition of the private shareholders' shares by the government," he said.
