In what is a becoming a regular responsibility, Move One has again been involved in the transportation of unusual military equipment.

This time the firm has successfully delivered a Dry Support Bridge (DSB) Launcher from the United Kingdom to Camp Leatherneck in Afghanistan.

Weighing in at over 42,000 kilos, the DSB Launcher, built by WFEL Systems, is used to bridge gaps to 46 metres and is robust enough to support military vehicles.

As heavy as it is advanced, the vehicle is essential in assisting engineers to repair essential infrastructural and civil utilities.

“The 42 ton launcher was successfully received from the UK and delivered to the military site on the base,” said Stephen McKinney, Move One Logistics’ station manager at Camp Leatherneck.

“This giant may be designed to get convoys wherever they need to be, but the vehicle also needs to be transported before it can be put to work. This is where Move One gets involved.”

The move follows on from an unusual military operation for the company last July, when the firm was involved in the transportation of 36 specially trained military dogs to Afghanistan.
