DISASTER RELIEF LOGISTICS
The global medical logistics projects we continue to handle include self-contained mobile first aid stations as well as medical supplies involved in the treatment of long term health issues and equipment for providing safe drinking water. We have also assisted our clients with disaster relief logistics to respond to crisis situations created by extreme weather events around the globe by chartering aircraft to supply much needed disaster response supplies, such as shelters, blankets, tents and water storage systems.
For shipments involving medical and humanitarian equipment it is always necessary to ensure that you receive advice from Wallis in advance. This way we can ensure that any country requirements for documentation can be adhered to prior to shipment along with any customs duty issues at destination. Another area we will advise on is the necessary packing requirements together with an assessment as to whether sea or air freight is the most suitable logistics solution.
