One of our ancillary services is that of Logistics Consultants. We invite potential importers and exporters to involve us at the very beginning of their project in order that we can steer them through the minefields.
We undertake short or long term contracts on a variety of remuneration options. The final options remain the choice of our clients and these are agreed at the beginning of the project.
In addition we provide "back-office" services for those companies who do not have a Shipping or Purchasing Department. Details of these are available on request.
We have undertaken many short and long term projects during our existence. Our most recent one started in August 2012 when we were retained as Procurement & Logistics Specialists for a UK company. Our brief is to source, supply and ship the project materials to Ghana. These will provide Ghana with nationwide broadband coverage and significant CCTV coverage for commercial and domestic properties
