Logistics services for the naval industry
TGI offers a vast amount of services within the freight industry, ranging from general customs clearance right the way through to chartering ocean-going vessels.
We provide a professional and extensive service for delivery of your cargo through a single point of contact in our customer service team. To find a solution that best suits your needs, we explore the trade lanes, carriers and service levels, as well as availability, frequency, transit time and cost.
Vessel charters shipping
TGI provides an extensive range of shipping services for local and international project cargo. All of our logistical solutions are developed with our individual clients in mind, so we will always recommend the best method or combination of transportation to ensure you receive the fastest, most effective outcome possible.
With TGI, you can be confident that your sea freight is in the best possible hands. We pride ourselves on paying great attention to detail and safety.
Our offering includes large vessels for projects in easily accessible locations, as well as smaller barges and coastal vessels for small, remote projects, which are difficult to access with larger crafts.
Special freight forwarding services by sea
TGI offers freight forwarding services for the naval industry, with dependable port-to-port and door-to-door transit times to allow our clients to make decisions based on a combination of cost, speed and service.
With a comprehensive list of strategic carrier partners across the globe, we provide reliable space allocations and competitive pricing. In addition, our customer service team provides updates utilising real-time information, which allows you to optimise your supply chain.
Logistics services for war zones
TGI has experience of providing logistics services to clients working in Iraq and other major areas of conflict. We therefore understand that projects in these environments need thorough planning and a high level of attention to detail. We also appreciate that it is crucial to be prepared for potential changes during the project’s execution.
As a result, TGI has become a pioneering defence logistics agency, specialising in international war zone logistics. We offer a service that operates in line with your required timing and standards, including the coordination of services from ex-works to delivery, along with security.
Salvage coordination of grounded vessels
TGI has experience of organising a logistics package to salvage grounded vehicles. In the past, this has included the mobilisation of air charters, helicopters, trucking and manpower to sites where they are needed.
Real-time asset tracking and condition monitoring system for naval logistics
TGI has teamed up with Wavetrend to produce the first real-time asset tracking and condition monitoring system for the freight forwarding industry.
The system, GlobalEyes©, consists of an asset monitoring unit (AMU) and a network communications centre called the Information Management Bureau (IMB). The AMU is equipped with a sensor suite that communicates with the web-accessible IMB via mobile, satellite, or through another unit via wireless LAN.
As the system uses publicly available global communications networks, no additional infrastructure is required. It allows all stakeholders in the logistics process to access real-time knowledge of the ‘where, when and condition’ of cargo and containers, 24/7.
Incorporating the patented integrated RFID solution, GlobalEyes uniquely combines GSM, GPS-based tracking with RFID monitoring and security.
Customs and quarantine clearance for cargo
TGI offers comprehensive customs and quarantine clearance for your import and export cargo, anywhere in the world.
As a business that specialises in freight forwarding, we are fully aware of the correct procedures for regulations, and can therefore ensure the smooth passage of your cargo through these particular channels.
