Oman’s Asyad Group has launched an LCL service using their maritime and container fleet to connect India’s Nhava Sheva Port with Oman’s Khazaen Dry Port (KDP) via the port of Sohar.

Asyad has introduced a new service that seeks to support Oman’s private sector by enabling them to access a thriving global market and providing them with the necessary tools to develop their services. According to Asyad, local companies that utilise the direct weekly LCL service will enjoy the benefit of reduced costs and shortened transit times when importing goods from India.

Asyad Logistics will now function as a consolidator and work with freight forwarders to provide a new solution. Their container freight station (CFS) at KDP, along with Oman’s location near the Indian subcontinent and Asyad Line’s weekly India Express Service (IEX), will be utilised. Asyad has plans to extend the LCL service to include imports from Indonesia and Singapore via the upgraded Far East Express (FEX) service later this year.
