New markets and emerging markets are often at the very edge of
the frontier. As a company, you need to be able to move people and
supplies to those locations but the transportation infrastructure is
often primitive, or even just being developed. Do you wait and risk
your competitors gaining ground or do you move and consolidate your
position? In these increasingly difficult and competitive global
environments, waiting can put your organization’s operations at risk.
Our fleet of ships and aircraft can give you the competitive
edge in that race—that ability to move into austere locations and keep
your operations moving.
Our ships give you a capability to move massive volumes of
materiel, essentially letting you start the race to get materiel on
site on time faster. These ships can be positioned to arrive at port to
offload your materiel or, if the need arises, can be offloaded by
sling-load using our one of our fleet of helicopters. This reduces the
potential for delays at some ports, allowing you to get your shipments
through customs and en route to their final destination faster.
Our aircraft can deliver loads up to 50 tonnes anywhere in the
world, giving you a significant heavy lift capability. Does the lack of
runways near your location cause you challenges? Our aircraft can
handle landing in austere conditions and, in the most difficult of
conditions, our helicopters are able to sling load 20 tonnes of
materiel in a single lift. Aircraft are only one part of the picture.
Our delivery system is a full supply chain solution. This
means more than shipping things quickly to the right location—it means
shipping it so that it arrives at the right time at that location. Our
management team understands the risks that can be posed by shipments
being late or shipments being made too early. Our secure warehousing
and inventory control systems allow you to time that shipment to best
effect. This means that you can maintain stocks of equipment and
materiel that can absorb the shocks in the supply chain—without having
to maintain burdensome and costly inventories at each location.
This supply chain solution is the next generation of the “just-in-time supply chain” that can leave organizations caught short in certain circumstances. Often referred to as the “just-in-case” system, this structure gives your organization part of the resiliency it needs to respond to circumstances concisely and confidently.
