Muscat, October 10, 2019: SOHAR Port and Freezone, in collaboration with RFX Industrial Parks LLC, recently held a ground breaking ceremony to launch the Phase 1 onsite construction of the RFX Industrial Parks project. It will provide integrated services in the supply chain through strategic 3PL or 4PL partnerships.

The entire development will comprise up to 290,000m2 of leasable space, which will offer various logistics and light industrial size formats, including Box and Flex-log formats while also providing an easy solution of moving to larger units as tenants’ business expand. Phase one will cover 10,600m2 of leasable area and further phases will be developed based on a combination of pre-lease commitments and market demand.

Highlighting the importance of the ceremony, Omar Mahmood Al Mahrizi, CEO of SOHAR Freezone - DCEO of SOHAR Port said, “SOHAR has always been committed to providing its tenants with only the best quality services. The RFX Industrial Parks facility will give our tenants more opportunities to lease warehouses or light industrial units instead of having to build their own. Apart from supporting our existing tenants, this development will also have the potential to attract new investments and businesses to set up at SOHAR. This in turn will be pivotal in establishing SOHAR Freezone as a distribution hub for both the local and regional market.”

Mark Wrong, CEO of RFX Industrial Parks added, “We are proud to be working alongside SOHAR Port to deliver personalised industrial facilities to tenants that want to operate within SOHAR Freezone. Our flexible leasehold options allow tenants to reduce capital expenditure and take advantage of high-quality amenities and competitive rents. Our specialist logistics and industrial team are based at SOHAR overseeing the development of all phases and are available to discuss the specific requirements any new tenant may have, as well as showcase the several options we can offer.”
