As one of the fastest-growing port and free zone developments anywhere in the world, the SOHAR Port and Freezone has an abundance of space that is readily available and filling up fast. The very first phase of the Freezone is almost fully leased out, three years ahead of schedule, and tenant companies are already reaping the benefits of unrivaled access to land, low-cost energy, and a skilled workforce. The Freezone is a 4,500 - hectare development that, together with the Port, has attracted global investments of over USD27 billion.
