DSV Panalpina has opened a new office in Muscat, Oman as it continues expanding its footprint in the Middle East.
Country manager Charles Francis commented in a report by London's Air Cargo News: 'Oman has distinct advantages as a transshipment hub for Qatar. It has become a pivotal geographical location for cargo flows to and from Qatar.
'Unlike some of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries, Oman has not introduced economic sanctions against Qatar and its trade with Qatar has increased by more than three times since the embargo began two years ago.'
In August last year, DSV wrapped up its US$5.5 billion acquisition of Panalpina, resulting in the creation of the second largest air freight services provider in the world after DHL.
