Townley Group International Project Logistics for the Air Force Industry
Townley Group International (TGI) is a leading provider of project logistics and freight forwarding services. Based in Australia, TGI is able to serve a global customer base with receiving stations in all major cities throughout the country, as well as regional sites and overseas locations.
We specialise in providing services to customers in difficult, remote and war zone areas, such as Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Fiji and Algeria, and are now considered to be a pioneering defence logistics agency.
Our services range from project logistics and out of gauge (OOG) cargo, general customs clearance, right the way through to chartering ocean-going vessels.
War zone logistics services
We provide international war zone logistics to clients in Iraq and other major areas of conflict. As part of the Iraq rebuild programme, we were contracted to disassemble, remove and deliver cargo to conflict-affected Iraq.
High-security operations like these require carefully controlled vehicles, and the ability to react quickly to unforeseen circumstances. As a company with a wealth of experience in the logistics and freight forwarding industry, we can execute projects that depend on in-depth planning and a great deal of attention to detail.
Our logistics services for conflict environments operate in line with your required timing and standards, including the coordination of services from ex-works to delivery, along with security.
Logistics services for large-scale, heavy-lift projects
As part of our project logistics and OOG cargo services, we can accommodate an array of major heavy-weight shipments.
We offer an extensive variety of logistics services for large-scale, heavy-lift projects, including thorough planning, project management and delivery.
With experience in handling road, ship and specialised air charter cargo movements from origin to site, our dedicated teams work together to ensure all of our services are delivered and completed on time and in line with our customers’ requirements.
Air freight forwarding services
With strong links with many of the world’s premium aircraft operators, we can accommodate the transportation of all cargo, regardless of its size.
Our seamless service includes arranging the necessary air freight documentation and tracking processes.
Asset tracking and condition monitoring system for defence cargo
Developed by TGI together with Wavetrend, GlobalEyes© is the first real-time asset tracking and condition monitoring system that has been developed for the freight forwarding industry.
The system gives stakeholders in the logistics process the ability to find out in real-time where their cargo or container is, when it was there and what condition it is in.
Consisting of an asset monitoring unit (AMU) and a network communications centre called the Information Management Bureau, GlobalEyes uniquely combines GSM, GPS-based tracking with RFID monitoring and security.
The system’s AMU is equipped with a sensor suite that communicates with the web-accessible IMB via mobile, satellite, or through another unit via wireless LAN.
Due to the system’s use of publicly available global communications networks, additional infrastructure is not required.
Storage services and customs and quarantine clearance
Following the recent re-location of our business to Yatala, Queensland, we now offer short, medium or long-term storage solutions. In addition, we provide customs and quarantine clearance for import and export cargo, no matter where you are in the world.
