World-Class Transport Services from A to Z
Majan Shipping and Transport offers a full range of transport and logistics services by land, sea and air. The company has three main activities: international freight-forwarding through the global Toll Forwarding group; specialized services for the oil and gas industry, including a memorandum of understanding with US-based Berkley Oil and Gas Specialty Services; and ship chartering.
Majan Shipping and Transport plays a key role in the Omani economy and provides integrated logistics services for state-owned Petroleum Development Oman (PDO), the country’s biggest oil and gas group. Andreas Klinke, General Manager, explains, “We were the direct logistics provider for PDO until 2005 and since then we have been PDO’s only third-party logistics provider, carrying out all consolidated distribution for the company in Oman. We have roughly 300 trucks operating under that contract and we are the only third-party logistics provider with a 24/7 management center. We are PDO’s distribution hub.”
Continuing to expand its portfolio, Majan Shipping and Transport launched chartering services in January this year to be able to “deal directly with ports in vessel-chartering, without having to go through a third party,” Mr. Klinke points out. Headquartered at the rapidly growing Port of Sohar, the company will soon open offices in Salalah and plans to start an operation in Duqm Port in the medium term.
Majan Shipping and Transport has positioned itself as the ideal logistics partner for international companies operating in or shipping through Oman, where Majan Shipping and Transport operates a 24-hour service center. Defining the company’s competitive edge, Mr. Klinke says, “We have the capacity to provide a full range of services for leading multinationals. We can handle all their freight-forwarding and distribution needs. In addition, our staff is committed to working around the clock in order to ensure that our operations run as smoothly as possible.”
