Move One Logistics is proud to announce that it has successfully completed yet another massive shipment of land-mine clearing devices. Shipping to Afghanistan this enormous consignment of 105 units of specialised heavy military equipment is vital for peacekeeping forces in Afghanistan. These devices aid to protect both civilians and service personnel.

The mine rollers, also known as ‘mine trawls‘, are heavy devices mounted on the front of an armoured vehicle. This equipment allows military engineers to detonate mines without endangering themselves or civilians. The rollers were transported from Hahn in Germany to Bagram and then on to Kandahar.

Andrew Davis,  Move One’s Afghanistan Team Leader, gave details of the enormous project. He said “Last week we shipped 63 mine roller units on three cargo 747’s , and this week another 42 units on two 747’s , all for different clients. More are to follow, and I’m more than satisfied with the work done.” (April 12, 2011)
