    Terminal 2D was initially developed in 2009 for a container terminal expansion, but SOHAR Port and Freezone is now offering the 750,000 square metre waterfront site to businesses involved in the logistics and metal sectors.

    The port is promoting the site’s proximity to the surrounding industrial areas, available water and accessibility to logistics services that surround the SOHAR Port and Freezone.

    Commenting on the potential of Terminal 2D, Mark Geilenkirchen, CEO of SOHAR Port and Freezone said, “SOHAR is strategically positioned at the centre of global possibilities, and has a consumer reach of over 2.2 billion across Africa, Asia and the Middle East.

    Potential customers are generally based outside Oman, so we aim to garner as many opportunities as possible to support them in setting up at SOHAR. Additionally, with the help of our One-Stop-Shop facility and the benefits we offer, investors will receive a favourable return on investment.”

    The One-Stop-Shop (OSS) service acts as a single-window for the port’s clients to obtain all necessary documents to operate a business. These include company registration and licensing, plot work and labour permits, visas, etc.

     “With several regional ports currently running out of space, SOHAR still has the capacity to further expand and attract prospective investments. Clustering is an innovative form of business. Therefore, the close proximity to our petrochemical, logistics and food clusters will also support the creation of upstream and downstream opportunities for further business developments. Moreover, as the Port and Freezone are both managed under a single entity, this allows for a seamless connection between the two, while also enhancing efficiency for feedstock imports and product exports,” Geilenkirchen added.

    Port of Oakland has agreed a long term lease for an off-dock drayage yard that lets a trucker collect a container in under 15 minutes.

    The Port of Oakland has announced a new 13-year lease for Shippers Transport Express (STE) to operate a 32 acre off dock logistics facility at the Port’s Seaport Logistics Complex through 2032.

    STE is a subsidiary of SSA Marine, the largest container terminal operator in Oakland by volume.

    SSA Marine has embraced the use of off-dock drayage yards that put containers directly on chassis for the shipper to collect, rather than retrieving the container from an RTG stack when the trucker arrives at the terminal.
    STE operates at four locations on the US West Coast, including Oakland.

    The new lease will enable STE to continue to offer its “express” service in Oakland.

    “Shippers Transport Express hauls 400 loaded import containers off the terminal every night,” said Port of Oakland Maritime Director John Driscoll.

    "That frees up space at the terminal for additional cargo and makes it easy to collect those containers for delivery.” The facility is just one mile from the terminal, but the difference in gate time is significant: under 15 minutes compared to approximately 75 minutes at the main terminal.

    “Import relocations are part of Oakland’s strategy to hasten cargo flow”, the Port said.

    “Other elements include night gates for truckers to ease daytime crowding and appointment systems for cargo pick-up.

    The strategy has cut significantly into truck driver transaction times that once extended beyond two hours”.

    STE will pay an average of US$4M in rent per annum for the site over the term of the lease, and the port will spend US$7M on paving the land for container parking.

    Canadian overnight air cargo services provider Cargojet has handled record volumes and added capacity to meet e-commerce demand for overnight deliveries last week.

    The e-commerce volume growth this past week was mainly driven by Amazon’s Prime day shopping holiday.

    "The continuing and tremendous growth of online shopping by Canadians is contributing to increased demand for Cargojet’s time sensitive overnight air cargo services,” said Ajay Virmani, president and chief executive officer.

    "Our major customers experienced significant volume growth this past week and Cargojet's overnight air cargo network is continuing to enable e-commerce delivery across Canada, by leveraging our existing aircraft fleet with additional daytime and overnight flights and capacity to meet this demand."

    "Cargojet handled in excess of 1,000,000 pounds more than an average week and operated 23 additional flights for prime week with 100 percent on-time reliability," added Virmani.

    Cargojet carries over 1,300,000 pounds of cargo each business night.

    Cargojet operates its network across North America each business night, utilising a fleet of all-cargo aircraft.
