Salalah Port Contingency




On May 25th 2018 a cyclone known as Mekunu triggered a landfall in Salalah, Oman causing heavy flooding in the city. As a result of this, the Salalah Port is unfortunately under power outage causing all communication systems to be down.
Given the situation, the port authorities have declared Force Majeure, and estimated operations to resume later this week.
To keep you updated daily on the developments and the contingency plan, we have created this dedicated webpage.
Please rest assured we will keep you updated on any changes to the situation. We are in close contact with the port management and are working hard to resume business as soon as possible.
For any questions, please feel free to reach out to your customer service representative.
