Humanitarian aid and disaster relief

Delivering waterborne relief

More than 40 percent of the world population live within 100 kilometers of the coast. When disaster strikes on land, the best way to provide support to those caught up in it, is often by sea. When power is down and roads are blocked, water provides the safest, fastest route for relief.

Disaster Relief

Bringing humanitarian care overseas

Humanitarian aid comes in many forms. People may require evacuation or it may be necessary to establish a forward operating base capability. A well-equipped disaster relief vessel, such as our RoRo 5612 with Disaster Relief Package, can provide the means to supply emergency medical treatment, food and clean drinking water and serve as a bridgehead from which to take relief further inland.

Our landing craft have the shallow draught capabilities to reach remote areas and to beach in the absence of infrastructure. They are perfectly suited to logistical fleet support.
