The Oman and Etihad Rail Company (OERC) have joined forces with Jindal Shadeed Iron & Steel (Jindal), a leading GCC integrated steel producer, to establish a sustainable end-to-end transport logistics solution. The Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) aims to facilitate the transportation of up to 4 million tons of raw materials and finished products annually from Jindal’s steel complex at Sohar Port to the UAE through the UAE-Oman Rail Network.

Optimizing Operations for Sustainability

The seamless transportation of nearly 4 million tons of raw materials will support Jindal’s ambition to reduce its carbon footprint and aligns with the company’s sustainability objectives.

Contribution to Emission Reduction

By utilizing the Oman-UAE Rail Network, this partnership aims to contribute to the reduction of CO2 emissions in both Oman and the UAE, in alignment with their national goals of achieving net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.

Boosting Industrial Growth

“Our partnership with Jindal Shadeed Group reinforces Oman and Etihad Rail Company’s commitment to improving logistics services, providing comprehensive solutions, and stimulating the growth of various industrial sectors within Oman and the UAE,” said Mohammed bin Zahran Al Mahrouqi, Deputy CEO of OERC. The MoU will enhance Jindal’s supply chain efficiency, further benefiting from the UAE-Oman Rail Network’s fast, cost-effective, and sustainable services.

Unlocking Sustainable Economic Growth
