MOL has played a key role in supporting the development of Oman’s shipping industry since 2003, when the Omani state-owned marine transportation company established as Oman Shipping Company (OSC), now rebranded under the name ASYAD Shipping.

At that time, MOL signed a deal for a “comprehensive business partnership related to the growth of the ocean shipping industry” with the government of Oman. MOL support over the years has ranged from procurement of newbuilding vessels for OSC to operational management after delivery
Oman Ship Management Company (OSMC) was established to manage OSC-owned and operated vessels in 2005, and up to the present, MOL, in cooperation with OSC and OSMC, has continued to allocate technical officers to OSMC to develop the skilled personnel needed to handle all phases of Oman’s shipping industry.
The training of seafarers is an important issue for the growth of the ocean shipping industry. MOL continually works closely with OSC and OSMC to promote the further development of Oman’s shipping industry and focuses on the training of highly skilled seafarers and other personnel, while drawing upon its accumulated expertise to support seafarer training
