Our unrivalled experience in handling Navy vessels has placed Seaforth firmly as the preferred agent for Navy port calls in East Africa. We are sensitive to the ship's requirements and security concerns and we give undivided care to the detail of the service we provide.
We have committed long term relationships with a network of reliable, well equipped port service contractors that assist us in providing an excellent yet cost effective service to Navy vessels. For our Client's peace of mind and to ensure the best service possible is provided, Seaforth vet all our contractors who must pass our 'supplier criteria' to become an approved supplier.
Force protection, timely clearance of spares and mail bags are our priority. We have maintained very good relations with the port police, marine police and tourist police to assist us in ensuring top level security coverage is provided during the Navy vessel's port call. We also maintain close relations with the various Embassy's defence section staff who advise and guide us on their specific security requirements. For parcels, spares and mail bags clearance, we contract specialised airfreight clearing and forwarding companies owing to their up to date knowledge of flight schedules and equipment availability at the airport. This strategy ensures the quickest most cost effective delivery service is provided to our Navy clients.
