Trucking / Transportation

 


Specialist Transport Services (STS), (A member of Specialist Group) currently operates a fleet of 188 units, which is broken down into: 60 Gorica Tipper Trailers, headed by Mercedes 3848 tractor units. Each of our trailers has the capacity to haul 45m3 which gives us a current daily total of 10,000 tons. In addition to these tipper trucks we have a further 70 owner hire trucks available, which more than doubles our current capacity. We also operate a fleet of 18 fuel & water tankers, with the ability to increase this number at short notice, from our preferred sub-contractor. Add to this a fleet of 40 specialised equipment trucks (flat beds, articulated, garbage, septic, potable & non-potable water trucks) and white fleet vehicles (Range Rover, Kia, Toyota & Mitsubishi), we are ready and able to take on all types of work.

The logistics and transportation industry is making rapid strides in the UAE, and in particular in Dubai. With infrastructure and realty development projects booming and new major projects being announced daily across the UAE, it is clear that the industry will continue to grow in the near & medium term.

Such expansion of construction in the UAE, projected for a minimum of 10 years, will produce a constant high demand for aggregates and sand; this, in turn, generates a constant and rising demand for tipper haulage services in an already stretched supply marketplace.

Specialist Transport Services (STS) operates a state-of-the-art transportation operation for the construction industry that offers a range of logistics solutions, specifically tailored to meet the requirements of each customer. Our array of equipment and supply of personnel provides us the capability to deliver the substantial volumes required by major civil engineering projects, as well as delivering more specialized requirements of the smaller trade customers.

To support this operation a highly experienced & qualified team of drivers (Advanced drivers with a knowledge of Dangerous Goods) & mechanics has been put together. Add to this a first class management team and you have the perfect recipe for success.

All this will be operated and controlled from a new state-of-the-art Headquarters, office, warehouse & maintenance complex in the Dubai Industrial City (DIC), which will be completed in 12-18 months.

There are 4 key areas of the mass haulage services areas that we are heavily involved with:

 

CEMENT/ CONCRETE

Cement/Concrete producers require a supply of aggregate on a 24 hour basis.
