Move One on the move

October 20 - Move One's new office within Shindand Air Base, Afghanistan will provide a full range of logistics services.

The new Move One office is located near the US military where most of the administrative tasks are coordinated. A large yard adjacent to the office is currently used for operations such as loading and unloading mission essential freight destined to the coalition forces.

The company says that it can handle offloading of cargo planes such as the Hercules, Antonov-12 and Ilyushin-76, and also "offers trucking services to and from Shindand, servicing any part of the country," said Zsolt Ormai, Move One's country manager for Afghanistan.

Move One continues to support the restoration of Afghanistan's infrastructure by delivering vital material to civil and military authorities, most lately in the form of large quantities of plywood sheets.

Sixteen trucks loads of the lightweight, versatile reprocessed timber have been transported from Almaty in Kazakhstan to multiple destinations in Afghanistan. Local authorities are not only engaged in restoration initiatives, but also massive civil engineering projects to facilitate the exploration of the estimated USD3 trillion in untapped iron, copper, gold and lithium deposits by foreign companies.

The latest delivery is part of an ongoing supply chain service, and will be followed by a further eight trucks of construction material every two weeks.

Meanwhile, in Iraq, Move One says that its new operational base in Az Zubayr, which is part of a wider restructuring and centralisation of Move One's Southern Iraq offices is now operational and open for business.

Centrally located, Move One says that the new facility will provide logistics and project management services to the oil industry, both the North and South Rumaila oil fields, as well as the West Qurna and Majnoon oil fields.

The 42,000 sq m site includes over 25,000 sq m of lay down space and 1,350 sq m of indoor warehousing. Craig Bailey, Move One's Southern Iraq manager says that with seven offices located throughout Iraq, Move One has built a successful track record in handling everything from small shipments to heavy, over-sized cargo for a variety of business sectors including military, diplomatic, oil and gas industry and civil reconstruction projects.

Finally, Move One has further expanded its range of services in Mongolia by opening a new office in Ulaan Baatar.

Located in the Sukhbaatar district of downtown Ulaan Baatar, the facility will coordinate operations in Move One's secure warehouse to the west of the capital.

Move One says that Mongolia has some of the world's biggest untapped reserves of gold, coal and uranium, including the Oyu Tolgoi project, a mineral deposit so large that it is could produce a third of the world's copper.
