Muscat International Shipping & Logistics (MIS) have successfully transported and shipped 8 x GRP 6m DIA tanks from Oman to Qatar.

The 8 tanks were transported by road from Rusayl to Sohar Port in Oman and then loaded to the vessel sailing to Hamad Port, Qatar. The project was handled at MIS by Mr. Joju and Mr. Ramseen under the supervision of their Managing Director, Mr. Noushad Rahuman.

The scope of work handled by MIS included:

  • Loading the tanks to multi-axle trailers & loading of accessories on 40’FRs;
  • Transport of all cargo by road from Rusayl to Sohar Port with police escorts at a distance of around 250km;
  • Due to the over-dimensional width & height, Sohar Port authorities had to give approval to open their main gate for this operation only;
  • Also due to the dimensions, arrangements had to be made to reroute the vessel to call at the breakbulk terminal in Hamad Port for the special discharging of the cargo.
