Blue Water's Aid & Relief Team recently completed their third survey tour to Africa. The purpose of the tour has been to strengthen the agent setup. Blue Water now covers 85 per cent of the African countries and all important hubs across the continent.

"It is important for us to streamline the network, and learn about the latest changes, regulations and how the ports and airports are working. This knowledge is vital for our ability to attract partners and clients. We select our agents carefully because we want to maintain our high service level and quality", says Johnny Mortensen, Head of Aid & Relief Logistics.

Lionel Guilbaud, who is responsible for the African network agrees:

"It is important that our clients' high-value cargo is in the hands of someone who appreciates quality as much as we do. We investigate all potential agents for their skills, financial strength and their way of doing business. Also, we inspect their equipment because we will not compromise with the quality of our services.
