US Navy

The United States Navy requires a logistics partner to provide vessel husbandry services to its vessels in foreign ports without US Navy facilities.

The Challenge

The United States Navy (USN) needed a husbanding partner with the flexibility to meet the needs of vessels with up to 5000 crew calling in foreign ports without USN facilities. These included Australian, Asian, Pacific and Middle East ports each with their own specific set of challenges and obstacles.

The Solution

Our remote logistic team combined their ships’ husbandry expertise with their defence logistics experience to create teams of port services coordinators assigned to each specific visit. These dedicated teams coordinated each visit from the planning phase, liaising with port authorities, host nation defence/police departments and procuring supplies, through to being on hand the entire visit to provide personalised service designed to meet the needs of both vessel and crew.

The Result

Toll’s remote logistics team supported USN vessels in Australian and a number of other foreign ports from 2001-2010, and was recontracted in 2013 to continue providing support to the USN. This support includes the full scope of husbanding services from organising pilots, tugs and berths through to CHT transfer, garbage offload, fresh water supply, ship-to-shore personnel transfer, buses, hire cars, telephones and foreign exchange.

Our approach to ship husbandry is to take care of the complete needs of a visiting ship no matter what they want, where they want it or when they want it while they are in port - nothing is too much trouble.
