Main features of Inhospitable Location Logistics

With our local knowledge and experience operating in challenging environments we are continuously developing our capabilities and understanding:

  • When working in inhospitable locations you may only have a narrow window of time in which to operate, this could be due to seasonal shifts making roads impassable or rivers unnavigable, or tides limiting operations to only a few hours of the day. Proper planning and engagement allow operations to conclude within the timeframe allowed.
  • Pentagon will work with qualified and approved suppliers to ensure the specialized equipment we need is available when we need it to get the job done.
  • We understand the need to engage with local communities to ensure they are given proper courtesy and respect. Pentagon’s team of local experts develop relationships which allow us to operate without interruption.
