Vale Oman wins Manufacturing at Logistics ME Awards
Vale Oman, the Sohar-based subsidiary of the Brazilian mining giant Vale, won the Manufacturing Supply Chain Management of the Year Award at the Logistics Middle East Awards 2017.
Manufacturing and mining are vibrant economic sectors thanks to the GCC’s push to diversify its economy and this category highlighted the logistics players and manufacturers doing it better than anyone else.
It was another fiercely contested category at the Logistics Middle East Awards, but the judges were ultimately most impressed with Vale’s distribution services, market innovation and responsible working practices in the past twelve months.
“We’re very proud to have this and thank you very much for this fantastic effort you’re making to recognise the logistics sector and its end-users,” Mattar Albadi, chief of port operations, Vale Oman, said after collecting the trophy.
“We’re continuing to ramp up processing capacity at our hub in SOHAR, because we want to make it a major global distribution centre and we’re nearing our 40-million throughput target,” he added when asked what plans Vale Oman has for the coming year.
