Offshore International joins forces with Mammoet

OFCO Mammoet signingAbu Dhabi Ports’ offshore logistics service provider, Offshore Support and Logistics Services Company (OFCO – Offshore International), has signed a MoU with Mammoet United Arab Emirates

The integrated maritime logistics service provider OFCO will work closely with the heavy lift and transport specialist Mammoet to create a unique integrated package of on and offshore turnkey transport and installation solutions for projects in the GCC.

Captain Maktoum Al Houqani, chief corporate authority officer and head of maritime cluster, Abu Dhabi Ports, said, “The newly-announced collaboration between Abu Dhabi Ports’ OFCO and Mammoet marks a critical milestone in Abu Dhabi Ports’ ongoing efforts to foster an integrated logistics ecosystem catering to our commercial and industrial customers’ every need.

“By combining each organisation’s expertise and resources, we can complement each other’s service offering and explore potential operational and logistical synergies, which would allow us to create an integrated, cost-effective solution for the major project market within the GCC and beyond.”

This in turn will not only provide customers with a streamlined, flexible and cost-effective solution for handling their heavy cargo transport needs but will also enable them to partner with a single service provider, rather than having to rely on several subcontractors to meet their supply chain requirements.

Paul van Gelder, CEO at Mammoet, added, “The strategic alliance with OFCO is a testament to that, as our collaboration will reduce the number of interfaces within the logistics chain of projects, enabling the planning and operations to be streamlined, and therefore realising the most efficient and cost-effective approaches.”

Launched at the start of 2021, OFCO operates under SAFEEN Group, Abu Dhabi Ports’ marine services arm, and is one of the largest cost-efficient providers of onshore and offshore integrated logistics solutions and subsea services in the GCC.
