Oman, a country with a proud history of international trade, has recently taken significant steps to ensure its logistics sector is primed for the future. To this end, the Port of Salalah — Oman's largest port — and TradeLens are working to introduce a cloud-based, blockchain supply chain platform to the country. In our upcoming Digital Roundtable, TBY will gather together key stakeholders to discuss the immediate impact of blockchain technology on the logistics sector and its significance for Oman's global ambitions.
