SOHAR Port and Freezone signs MoU with Brazilian port Pecam to enhance maritime logistics service capabilities

Oman-based SOHAR Port and Freezone has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Port of Pecam, Brazil, which will allow the entities to “collaboratively advance” their global maritime and logistics operations.

The agreement, SOHAR said, will enable the sharing of objectives, including the exploration of joint business opportunities, the exchange of knowledge and best practices and development of technologies for green hydrogen.

Mark Geilenkirchen, Chief Executive Officer of SOHAR Port said, “International partnerships, like the one with Pecém, allow us to consolidate expertise that helps us strengthen and expand our world port network and foster economic competitiveness.”

“Particularly with Brazil being such a strong player in food exports, Pecém is a welcome addition to our flourishing food cluster. At the same time, by showcasing the incredible success Vale has achieved in Oman over the last 10 years, it will enable us to demonstrate to Brazilian companies the vast opportunities SOHAR has to offer.”

Danilo Serpa, CEO of Complex of Pecém commented, “Our relationship with the Port of Rotterdam, who has been our partner since 2018, has opened up many new opportunities for us, including our latest with the SOHAR.”

“Strategically located on a global trade route connecting Europe and Asia, it presents us with unrivalled connectivity, helping us to tap into the tremendous potential of the region. We look forward to linking both ports and bringing value to our shared customer base.”

As the closest Brazilian terminal to both the USA and Europe, the Port of Pecém is becoming a main hub for North and Northeast Brazil. Considered to have the best port and hinterland infrastructure connectivity in the region, it is one of just a few Brazilian terminals capable of handling ultra large container vessels.
