Polaris Report Receiving & Local Handling in the UAE
Polaris Report Receiving & Local Handling in the UAE

Polaris Shipping Agencies (members in the UAE) were entrusted with the receiving and local handling of a shipment consisting of a Roto Mill Module along with accessories. The shipped arrived in Abu Dhabi from Southampton in the UK on 2 x 40' and 2 x 20' flat-racks after necessary dismantling to be accommodated on a container vessel. The biggest piece had a cargo width of 3.50m and height of 4.55m.

As their scope included the door delivery and with a maximum height restriction of 5m officially allowed on UAE roads, the experience team at Polaris arranged for a careful and detailed route survey prior to the vessel's arrival which was given the go ahead with necessary approvals from authorities. The required equipment and trailers, including special low loaders, were positioned alongside the vessel with special permissions from the Port Authority to avoid any delay in the operations. On completion of all formalities, the shipment was transported overnight with the required escorts and delivered to the receivers on time.
