Dangerous Goods & Explosive Ordnance Transport

Depth Defence Logistics are qualified and experienced in shipping any class of dangerous goods including IMO Class 1 explosives and ammunition domestically and internationally by air, road, rail and sea.

Members of our team possess current dangerous goods transport qualifications by all modes so we have the capability to professionally handle all aspects of any shipment.

We understand that the safe and secure handling of ordnance is critical and that we play a vital role in the accountability required of transporting this type of cargo. Our myCargo fifth generation IT logistics platform contributes significantly to monitoring the location of cargo in real time. This includes real time vessel and air cargo tracking capabilities.

Contractor selection is paramount to transporting munitions anywhere in the world. That is why we have a stringent approved supplier process underpinned by our ISO certified procedures and our freight forwarders liability cover of up to A$50m. This approved supplier process applies to carriers whether by air, road, rail or sea.

For larger consignments of explosive ordnance (EO) or dangerous goods we are adept at handling full ship or aircraft charters and the required documentation and clearances.

For sea freight of EO we have relationships with ship owners who have a reliable track record of securely transporting this most sensitive cargo. We can arrange the ship’s quarters for any security detail that may be assigned to protect the consignment.

Confidentiality is of course paramount, so we have ex-defence security cleared logisticians on our team that closely coordinate and monitor every link of the transportation chain and interface seamlessly with defence personnel.

Depth Defence Logistics is simply the most reliable and professional choice in shipping military energetics in defence supply chains.

Defence Industry leaders chose Depth Defence Logistics for our reputation of “Absolute Reliability” in moving their cargo on time, on budget, safely and securely.
