Working closely with Jurong Port, WWL is developing an on-dock hub solution for handling rolling stock in the important Southeast Asia region. The partners recently celebrated handling one million tonnes of cargo since January 2009.1.
ARRIVING IN PORT
A Caterpillar dump truck body arriving from India is offloaded at one of two dedicated WWL berths in Jurong Port. The trucks will be assembled right here when the Product Distribution Center (PDC) is completed in 2012.
2. THE IDEAL HUB
Wheel loaders destined for Indonesia arrive onboard a WWL vessel. They will be brought through import procedures and processed here before being sent to local dealers, or transshipped to other ports in Asia.
3. FROM PARTS TO WHOLE MACHINES
Bulldozer parts, wheel loaders and a dump truck body await offloading, an indication of the wide range of Caterpillar and other products that WWL handles at Jurong Port.
4. FINAL TOUCHES
Eddie Tan, Operations Manager for WWL and head of the processing service team, personally takes on a little touch-up paint work. In Phase II, this will be augmented with full paint booths and other advanced services.
5. THE JURONG TEAM
Part of the team of dedicated, highly-qualified specialists providing solutions for large and small volumes alike, and for everything from simple storage solutions to customized technical services.
6. PROCESSING CENTER, PHASE I and II
Currently housed in this convenient, reusable (and naturally-lit) tent building, the processing services handled by WWL will be greatly expanded in Phase II to include a full range of processing, transport management, technical and storage services.
