RoRo Shipment: 79 Twin Deckers for Public Transport in Dubai

Our teams in the UAE, Malaysia, and Singapore executed a complete logistics solution for a twin decker movement from Malaysia to the United Arab Emirates. The job was to ship no less than 79 twin decker buses from the production site via Singapore to Jebel Ali Freezone in Dubai. Just another example of successful Finished Vehicle Transportations with Hellmann.

Hellmann UAE took up this complex challenge to successfully deliver a simplified logistics execution with great efforts of commendable proactive planning, site visits, and preliminary surveys throughout the entire project cycle.

With their high level of commitment to every movement of the buses, Hellmann UAE have displayed a continued build-up in such Automotive Finished Vehicle Logistics end to end. Our expertise has been demonstrated before, with the handling of MAN Trucks from Germany back in 2015. With this record of successfully handling finished vehicle movements, United Motors and Heavy Equipment Company LLC selected Hellmann to handle their RoRo movements from any sourcing location to UAE ports.

For this twin decker movement, the buses were transported from Malaysian body builder to Jebel Ali port UAE taking care of the multiple critical logistical elements:

  • Supplier timelines and readiness of double-decker bus units
  • On-time inspection of buses at the factory
  • Transport planning from the factory to the port in line with vessel movements Ex-Singapore Port
  • High-level customs compliance and export declarations at Malaysia-Singapore border
  • Handover of buses at the borders with 24/7 operation and high vigilance throughout the journey
  • Storage at the terminal and careful loading operations into the vessel at Singapore port
  • Careful offloading operations and checks at Jebel Ali port together with the customer’s team

All 79 buses were transported within a timeline of 4 months from the factory to UAE and then handed over to the Dubai Road Transportation Authority successfully. All colleagues at Hellmann UAE, Singapore and Malaysia worked tirelessly for the execution of this movement and made it happen with great pride & achievement.
