Road transport to Afghanistan
Wednesday, January 04, 2012
October 2001, Afghanistan was invaded by the
American army. Nowadays several years later on, an ISAF Force of
approximately 132,000 troops including the Dutch police training
mission in Kunduz are keeping peace in Afghanistan. Al these
soldiers prefer to be supplied with western products. Wagenborg
Reining was asked to perform road transport from Holland to Kabul.
With the knowledge of colleagues from several divisions a
comprehensive analysis of the whole project was made. All possible
scenarios where checked and a total picture of the transport became
visible. With dedicated cooperation of the customer, the document
arrangements went smoothly. The first refrigerated trailers were
loaded at the customers place on Friday the 9th of
December. One of the trailers cooling engine refused to start
working and delay threatened to occur. Fortunately after
quick action was undertaken this problem could be solved.
Monday 12th of December: D-Day. On 10a.m. the
first 3 trucks with refrigerated trailer headed eastwards. With
special fuel suited for possible bad weather circumstances
and all required documents the Reining drivers were allowed to
depart. With an expected lead time of 3 weeks the transport will
arrive in the by Germans controlled area in northern Afghanistan.
After unloading in Kabul the return trip to Holland will commence.
6 weeks after departure the trailers will be expected back in
