    Managers arranged for technicians from Goltens Dubai to board

    Hello everybody!
    At Port Said, Managers arranged for technicians from Goltens Dubai to board the vessel for more detailed examination of the damage.
    Does Managers arranged for technicians from Goltens Dubai to board mean Managers arranged that technicians from Goltens Dubai should board or Managers organised technicians from Goltens Dubai who were (supposed) to board?
    or
    Does Managers arranged for technicians from Goltens Dubai to board mean Managers asked for technicians from Goltens Dubai to board?
    I deliberately didn't write Managers asked for technicians from Goltens Dubai to board because Managers asked someone else to persuade technicians from Goltens Dubai to board.
    Is my reasoning right?

    Except for the capitalized "managers", your initial sentence is good. Also, we tend not to use "that" with "arrange". As to the meaning of the sentence, think of it this way:
    "The managers arranged for technicians from Dubai to be present and ready to board the ship at Port Said."
