SOHAR Port launches online route planner

The shipping of goods is far more than just port to port SOHAR Port and Freezone recently launched SOHAR Navigate, an online route planner that provides information on hinterland connections.

The platform provides the user with various options for shipping from the required departure point to destination with customers able to choose based on modes of transport and transportation time which option works best for them.

The platform was originally launched by SOHAR’s partner the Port of Rotterdam and it has been adapted to suit the regional needs of customers.

Mark Geilenkirchen, ceo of SOHAR Port and Freezone, said, “Capitalising on this technology, we have modified SOHAR Navigate to suit our regional and global stakeholders and provide them with outreach, as well as a user-friendly means to locate the most efficient and optimal routes for their activities. Users of SOHAR Navigate are able to plan routes from specific areas, via SOHAR, in an easy and convenient way.”


The platform also offers extensive analysis tools and dashboards with relevant user data, and can provide insight into the carbon footprint of a container transported.

Anacin Kum, CEO of Hutchison Ports SOHAR added, “SOHAR Navigate has been developed especially for companies seeking smarter ways to plan their container transports. The launch of the beta version of this tool is a good first step and we are excited about its role in the global logistics market."
