April 7 - Following its authorisation as a supplier to the UK Ministry of Defence, Allseas Global Logistics has now secured the United Nations' Approved Supplier Status for its commitment to the humanitarian aid and relief sector.

"Following recent humanitarian aid and disaster relief efforts, we have focused resources and effort on detailed registration and accreditation procedures," said group commercial manager, Mark Binge.

"There is an awful lot of work to be done in the humanitarian, air and relief side of things," added Allseas' business development manager, Carl Clark. "We are looking to use Allseas' years of experience not just in heavy lift but in general logistics to push ourselves into this very specialised area."
