Technology is a key transformation pillar in SOLS2040 and can usher an exponential change towards the logistics practices in the Sultanate of Oman. We focus on improving the use of logistics technologies throughout the logistics sector within Oman. Our objectives are to identify, adopt and facilitate the use of innovative technologies from within the Sultanate’s technology sector as well as globally established technology players along the four domains as below:
Technology based Transformation
Technology is allowing for rapid transformation of logistics practices towards smart logistics using innovative platforms and integration through new devices. Our objectives are to understand and establish the emerging and dominant trends in Logistics technology and bring a sustained model for their adoption to the Logistics players in Oman to propel their operations into a globally acclaimed level of services and customer experience.
Governance through Business Intelligence
We aim to use and promulgate business intelligence tools and technologies to bring transparency in governance, visibility for operational effectiveness and simplify scorecards to evaluate performance.
We promote the use of leading track-and-trace systems and vehicle monitoring technologies in order to promote people and material tracking mechanisms which can aid private enterprises and retail customers to be able to plan their activities around the delivery milestones. This collaborative approach can also harness the mobility solutions to make track-and-trace available on-the-go.
Innovative Technology Adoption
New and innovative technologies like Augmented Reality, Self-driving or assisted vehicles, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), Internet of Things (IoT), Automated Warehouses, 3D printing and AI-based algorithms can provide a competitive advantage in logistical operations. We are keen to partner with enterprises and agencies to pilot and test such new technologies. We would define their adoption path and facilitate with key stakeholders towards achieving the Sultanate’s logistics technology strategy.
