Government & Defence Logistics

Our experts handle complex logistics for national defence forces and military industries in conflict areas worldwide

Troop and equipment transports for international missions

Transports to and from the world’s hot spots require an experienced logistics provider. Through Blue Water’s dedicated project teams - representing a combined experience of 30 years within the Government & Defense industry - you will benefit from flexibility, technical know-how and perfect planning 24/7/365.

Whether it is transport of troops, equipment or AOG shipments for an international mission, we can arrange for you by sea, road or air.
As an independent operator, we offer cost-effective solutions through our close ties with all players in the air charter industry.

With more than 40 years of experience in the transport industry, we guarantee that all steps, from planning the transport to execution, will be carried out as planned - no matter the destination or type of cargo.

Continent focus

Africa

Over the past decade, Blue Water has arranged cargo transports to a wide range of African countries, and we have staff deployed on short or long-term contracts for management of projects.

North America

Located on the east coast of the USA, close to both Newark Airport and Port Elisabeth, Blue Water New York has a strong team dedicated to handling any defence logistics assignment.

Middle East

Blue Water Middle East was established in the United Arab Emirates in 1991, and today the office enjoys the benefits of being a well-reputed and efficient organisation with a loyal and well-educated staff.

North Altantic

Over the years, Blue Water has handled several contracts for national defence and air forces to and from the North Atlantic countries of Greenland, Iceland and the Faroes.

Planning and coordinating relocation

Starting a new life abroad? Let us handle every step of the relocation process from one country to another - or even from one continent to another. Avoid stressful thoughts – should a contingency arise – just leave it to us.

 

Locally, we have experts who will make sure to pack and load your valued personal effects safely. At your new destination, we will take care of customs, document handling and delivery so that you will have time to focus on your new surroundings.

Mission area expertise

Planning every detail of a transport is essential in mission areas where challenging infrastructure and instability are influential factors. Preparing each step, studying the area and analysing the risks are vital factors for ensuring the safety all through the transport.

 

A designated Blue Water Point-Of-Contact (POC) will be appointed for each project to make communication easier for our clients. The POC is on hand in every step of the transport 24/7.
