Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) briefed a delegation from Abu Dhabi Transmission & Despatch Company (TRANSCO); a subsidiary of Abu Dhabi Water & Electricity Authority (ADWEA) on the best practices of storage and inventory management. The step is part of RTA’s strategy to share knowledge and expertise with government, semi-government and private entities. 

“During the visit, the Department of Contracts and Procurement made a visual presentation highlighting RTA’s organisational structure, roles of the sections, and the inventory management system in place. The presentation touched on the smart warehouse projects characterised by space-saving storage, accuracy in issuing materials, and enabling selling items through auctions. The gathering witnessed a rich exchange of views and knowledge as well as inquiries and answers,” said Saeed Al Marri, Director of Contracts and Procurement, Corporate Administrative Support Services Sector, RTA.

“TRANSCO delegation also visited RTA Al Rashidiya and Al Awir Depots for storing spare parts as well as the requisites of infrastructure projects. Visitors were introduced to the best practices adopted in this field highlighted by accuracy, transparency and avoiding inventory waste practices associated with other traditional means. The visit is in line with the policy of our leaders to promote the sharing of knowledge in a variety of fields between government entities in Dubai and UAE,” added Al Marri. 

At the end of the visit, the delegation praised RTA’s advanced inventory management practices; befitting it as a mega Dubai Government unit with a wealth of experience in a variety of fields. They added that the exposure was of considerable benefits to them.
