A very warm welcome to MARAFI, a member of ASYAD Group, Oman’s integrated logistics provider. We specialize in port operations and all associated management services, forming a core part of ASYAD’s vision to reclaim Oman’s 2,000-year-old trade leadership.
MARAFI’s first project was the operation and management of Port Sultan Qaboos, followed by the ports of Suwaiq, Shinas and Khasab.
Port Sultan Qaboos has established itself as the focal point of maritime tourism to and from Oman. Its location and high operational efficiency have helped to establish it as the preferred port of choice for cruise liners, which have expanded their operations from port of call to turnaround calls, and winter calls to year round calls. In fact, the port’s ongoing success means that it will soon become a home port for a number of major cruise lines.
Port Suwaiq and Port Shinas are medium size ports along the north coast of Sultanate that provide outstanding services to local importers and exporters. These ports have been identified for major infrastructure development given sustained and fast-growing demand from international and domestic partners.
Port Khasab, situated in the strait of Hormuz, has been selected by MARAFI as a prime candidate for development as a cruise liner destination, cargo and container re-export and transshipment hub, and industrial zone. The port is a growing tourism hub and essential gateway to Musandam, in addition to serving international markets through transshipment operations.
MARAFI is dedicated to developing the Sultanate’s economy and the communities it serves, and is keenly aware of its corporate social responsibilities. We are committed to effective and transparent governance, operational excellence, and the development of human capital.
With strong support from all our investors and stakeholders, MARAFI will continue to grow from strength to strength. Our aim is simple - to earn recognition as the world’s best port and logistics operating company.
