Delivered on Time has just completed yet another successful movement for one of its regular F1 clients, Multlink Holland. Seacon UK, D.O.T's dedicated sea freight division was tasked with moving the "fully assembled triple uplink trailer" from Antwerp in Europe to Abu Dhabi in UAE for the Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix that took place on the weekend of 1st to 3rd November 2013.

By the very nature of the trailer it was moved between the two regions using the Green Bay, a roll-on roll-off vessel. On arrival in Abu Dhabi D.O.T's new regional office based in Dubai was able to handle the temporary import and positioning of the trailer to the Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi.

D.O.T's regional business development manager, Mohammed Anas, said "It has been a great pleasure to work on the first F1 event in the region since D.O.T established an office here earlier this year. D.O.T will bring a great deal of experience to this region which has an ever growing requirement for event logistics specialists".

Now the F1 event in Abu Dhabi is over, the uplink trailer will be stored by D.O.T UAE, most likely until either the Bahrain F1 event or the Moto GP season opener at the Losail circuit in Doha, early next year.
