PROBLEM: In early 2015 MAG Logistics was contracted to deliver 650 metric tons of various oversized UN Peacekeeping equipment from Jinan, China to Juba, South Sudan on behalf of the People’s Liberation Army of China supporting the United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS).
SOLUTION: This was China’s first and urgent deployment of the full infantry battalion equipment which consisted of multiple containers, trucks, vehicles, armored personnel carriers and dangerous cargo to the war-torn African country. MAG Logistics was tasked with arranging the best capacity air transportation option utilizing multiple various capacity aircraft including AN-124, IL-76 and Boeing-747F.
RESULTS: Juba airport is not suitable for large aircraft, therefore MAG Logistics expert team was challenged with transloading most of this equipment at Entebbe, Uganda for final delivery in priority sequence with a smaller IL-76 freighter. All required UN peacekeeping equipment was delivered to Juba on time so the troops could quickly focus on protecting civilians and UN personnel and participate in humanitarian relief, street patrol and other security duties.
