Founded in 1992, the Al Faris Group is a globally established partner to leading companies in the Middle East for the rental of heavy equipment, heavy transportation and heavy lifting operations for major construction projects. For the transportation and rental of heavy, long and outsize loads, the logistics specialist has been relying on towed and self-propelled heavy-duty modules as well as semi-trailers from Goldhofer for many years. The vehicles produced in Memmingen give the industry leader in the UAE an extremely broad-based fleet for a full functional range. With the resulting flexibility for a variety of applications, Al Faris can meet even the most challenging transportation requirements for its customers, with reliability and safety.

Family-owned AI Faris with 28 years of experience, offers a wide range of safe and reliable heavy lift and heavy haulage solutions, using the most advanced equipment combined with integrated and sustainable best practices. In addition to the largest fleet of cranes and heavy equipment in the Middle East, the heavy lift and transportation specialist has an extensive network of depots, service engineers, technicians, and dedicated teams of professionals.

Al Faris has played an integral role in the construction work for numerous iconic projects such as the Dubai Metro, Dubai Mall, Riyadh Metro, Palm Jumeirah and Burj Khalifa. The major industries in the region such as oil and gas, shipping, construction, petrochemicals and manufacturing also rely on the proven expertise and long years of experience of the Al Faris Group.

Proven partnership with Goldhofer
For 12 years now, Al Faris has been relying on flexible Goldhofer solutions in the form of low loader semi-trailers and heavy-duty modules to deliver heavy construction machinery and generators, long components, outsized vessels, and even ships and ship loaders to their destinations. “Whatever type of vehicle involved – low loader semi-trailers or towed or self-propelled heavy-duty modules – the flexible configurations available with Goldhofer enable us to provide a rapid response with reliable transportation solutions for our customers and to implement them quickly and economically,” says Hillary Pinto, Founder of the Al Faris Group.

The choice or configuration of the right Goldhofer vehicles is always based on intensive assessment and meticulous planning, taking into account both the cargo and the conditions to be encountered on the journey.

Deliveries guaranteed as per schedule
In the course of its close partnership with Goldhofer, Al Faris has handled almost everything that is long, high, heavy, and voluminous in the petrochemical, construction, oil/gas and manufacturing industries. “Our flexible Goldhofer fleet has enabled us to master every transport requirement to date, no matter how challenging,” says Pinto.

Last year alone, the company transported not only 19 oversized separator vessels over a distance of 150 km to a crude oil production facility in Abu Dhabi but also extremely heavy ship loader and bucket wheel stacker components to the port of Jebel Ali for onward shipment to the Canadian Baffin Islands.

Precision solutions for a win-win situation
Al Faris recently transported a tugboat and pontoons over a distance of 140 km to the Hatta Dam, where an environmentally friendly pumped storage hydropower plant with a generating capacity of 250 MW is being built. The route involved several narrow passages as well as overhangs and power lines with very low clearance heights.

Following careful planning, Al Faris chose a heavy-duty Goldhofer drop-deck combination for the first stage leading from the port through the urban area, which made easy work of the narrow passages and roundabouts. However, for up to 23-degree gradients in the Hatta mountains, towed THP and self-propelled PST heavy duty modules were used. The result: as with many other heavy haulage jobs, the tugboat and pontoons reached their destination right on schedule. “Within our fleet, Goldhofer’s heavy-duty semitrailers and modules play an important and reliable role. They form the basis for our precision planning and organization – and our reputation for punctual delivery,” says Pinto.
Goldhofer receives ‘Global Market Leader Champion 2021’ award
For the fourth time, experts from the University of St. Gallen and the Academy of German Global Market Leaders (Schwäbisch-Hall) have confirmed the leading role played by Goldhofer AG in the field of heavy haulage and oversized cargo transportation vehicles.

The Memmingen-based company, which is present on six continents, has thus once again received the coveted award. “We are absolutely delighted with this distinction, especially as it reflects the worldwide customer satisfaction deriving from the know-how, experience and, above all, enthusiastic commitment of our employees. That is the key to market leadership. My thanks and those of my colleagues go to all Goldhofer employees around the world,” says Lothar Holder, CEO, Goldhofer AG.

This year, Goldhofer again made its mark by outperforming the relevant criteria in the field of heavy haulage and oversized cargo transportation vehicles. In 2019, Goldhofer’s 751 employees generated net sales worth over 213 million euros, with exports accounting for 83 percent of the total, a reflection of the fact that the company, which was founded in 1705, is present with its products on all six continents of the world. But the Global Market Leader Champion 2021 has always remained true to its origins: As one of the oldest German companies in the Global Market Leader Index, Goldhofer AG is wholly owned by the Memmingen-based Alois Goldhofer Foundation.
