The expansion of the service follows the successful implementation of RFID technology at Terminal one, which has helped DP World in monitoring diesel fuel consumption, increase operational efficiency and manage scheduled vehicle maintenance.

More than 1,500 vehicles have been installed with RFID across the three terminals. The RFID system will reduce fuelling time for DP World’s fleet and enhance the efficiency of operations at DP World’s container terminals.

The successful integration has enabled a more efficient process for fuel management, as RFID technology has sped up the refuelling process for each truck by 50 per cent and eliminated manual data entry for all fuel transactions by 90 per cent, enhancing the operational efficiency of commercial fleets.

Mohammed Al Muallem, CEO and managing director at DP World, UAE Region, commented, “At DP World, we are focused on strengthening the existing supply chain and technology will be the driving force for that. Investing in cutting-edge solutions has been a fundamental part of our growth story, from our semi-autonomous Terminal 3 at Jebel Ali Port to the integration of smart technologies such as blockchain, IoT and cloud computing across our portfolio.”

“The implementation of ENOC’s RFID technology in fuel terminals two and three at our flagship Jebel Ali Port will serve to enhance their world-class productivity and efficiency and allow us to meet future demand ahead of time. ENOC is an industry-leading solutions provider, and we are proud to work with them to help further develop the UAE’s energy logistics sector and solidify its position as the leading trade hub of the GCC,” Al Muallem added.

The RFID system is currently installed at DP World’s terminals one, two and three. The use of RFID has also enabled DP World to gather key data to help them optimise performance – such as distance driven, engine cycles, vehicle utilisation, fuel consumption and other operational statistics.

ENOC serves as fuel provider to DP World, providing both diesel and petrol. The company is also closely involved in consultancy, starting from the service station design stage, providing recommendations and solutions for DP World’s requirements in terms of both EHS Standards and Design.
