Ports, Direct connections

SOHAR Port and Freezone provides comprehensive insight into its connectivity with Routescanner's Direct Connections

The Port of Sohar is the second port to launch Routescanner’s Direct Connections solution. Direct Connections provides a complete overview of all direct intermodal routes to and from Sohar. Not only will the application show each individual connection, it also provides detailed information on transit times, frequencies and service codes. This solution allows shippers and freight forwarders to evaluate the smartest options to ship containers via Port of Sohar according to their requirements. 


Dimitri Van Eekelen, Commercial Manager Port at SOHAR Port and Freezone says: ‘With Direct Connections, users are now able to plan their container routes from specific areas, via our port, in an easy and convenient way. It will also provide visible and convenient options for local importer and exporter groups, who generally rely on logistic providers that serve our region.” 


Shaping the port’s commercial and digital agenda 

‘’This solution is a good example of how we are shaping our commercial and digital agenda’’, Says Van Eekelen. ‘’We see opportunities to enhance the solution in time with additional valuable information about, for example, shipping performance, on-time arrival information or co2 information and thus the competitive position of SOHAR as a strategic location’’. For now, the information in Direct Connections is always up to date and therefore reliable to work with. This means that users no longer have to go from website to website to find out which departures are available but have all the information in a single overview and can contact the operator concerned at the click of a button.  


An easy-to-implement solution 

Thanks to Routescanners strong foundation of data, the solution can be easily customized for ports. In addition, the integration process is seamless. Adding the Direct Connections solution on a port’s website requires nothing more than implementing a single line of code. Routescanner Direct Connections is available for all ports that want to visualise and showcase their intermodal network of container routes. Find out more here.
