MARAFI was established with a vision to successfully and commercially operate and manage ports within the Sultanate and also regionally and internationally. In-line with ASYAD’s aspiration to become one of top 10 global integrated logistics service provider by 2040, terminal operations growth is a critical component, including the acquisition of global terminals. ASYAD’s goal is to create significant economic benefits such as volumes connectivity, job creation, contribution to national GDP, national trade and industry enabling, technology transfer and social welfare through MARAFI.
MARAFI was formed as a limited liability company under law of the Sultanate of Oman and commenced its dream journey to fulfil its vision by undertaking the operations and management of Port Sultan Qaboos with effect from 1st January 2018.
The company is mandated to undertake port operations and management, including harbor and marine services, and shore based port operations including dry ports.
