With increasing focus on expanding our services, WCS’s core business remains Third Party Inspection of new equipment – be it built by ZPMC or Liebherr, Kone, Doosan, Paceco, SPMP, or others.
However, to broaden the scope of services offered to our clients, WCS also performs several related tasks involving equipment in operation on your terminal including load testing, periodic thorough equipment examinations, life cycle analyses, accident recovery, & electrical & mechanical refurbishments.
Over the last three years, WCS has carried out numerous crane refurbishments & upgrades to maximize the employment of capital for a variety of clients around the world. While doing so, WCS has strengthened its team to match the continuing growth in this business segment.
WCS continues to draw upon the excellent manufacturing links within UAE to produce its own range of safety & terminal products headed up with a modular 20’/40’ Container Top Safety Work Cage & high-quality terminal trailers (having now produced close to 150 units).
Finally, WCS has expanded into spare parts & service provision, operating a dedicated distribution centre from the Jebel Ali Free Zone in Dubai where ZPMC components are stocked & delivered to Africa, the Middle East, & the Sub-Continental region.

Mission - How we operate
WCS is not a nine-to-five service provider. Whether it be inspecting new cranes, repairing old ones, sourcing spare parts, or discussing opportunities with clients, we are available and working to add value. Our dedicated staff all work on the premise of ownership.
Your crane or project is our concern, and our desire is to ensure that you, the customer, is satisfied upon the conclusion of a project that WCS has delivered value and met or exceeded your expectations. If we do not succeed, then we want to learn why, and ensure success next time!
The continued growth of the shipping, port & cargo handling industry, combined with the desire to increase productivity puts increased pressure on equipment manufacturers to produce bigger, faster, more complex cranes, whilst trying to minimize the impact of such features upon cost, weight & lead-times.
These opposing strains clearly & significantly increase the risks associated with design & manufacture.
However, such risks can be mitigated through effective Third-Party Inspection (TPI) & effectiveness can be achieved through good co-operation with the manufacturer & implementing effective solutions in a timely manner.
In parallel, you can rely on WCS as your preferred solutions provider to verify the design, systems & manufacturing processes from start to finish, ensuring compliance to specification & fitness for purpose.
Additionally, the speed & subsequent depth witnessed in the current economic slowdown & supply chain issues have clearly presented the port industry with a totally different range of decisions to contemplate whilst formulating capital expenditure budgets for the short, medium & long terms.
As a result, there has been a marked shift from the purchase of new capital-intensive items such as cranes to meet growing volumes & replace ageing equipment, to projects more aligned with conserving capital. This predicament has opened peoples’ eyes & minds to seriously consider schemes to extract another five toten years of use from Ship-to-Shore cranes that in more prosperous times would have been parked at the end of the quay, sold or even demolished.
As a leader in this field, WCS has successfully undertaken several upgrade projects, applying innovative & cost-effective solutions to extend the useful lifetime of major assets in business units around the globe.
These are all challenges & are part of daily life at WCS. The reward comes when equipment goes into service, on time, within specification & exceeds all expectations.
