Ridgeway has been heavily involved, in the last few years in the specific area of ‘demilitarisation logistics’, and has built up a strong reputation for reliability, thoroughness and value for money with many of the leading contractors in this field. This includes the U.S. Air Force, NATO Maintenance and Supply Agency (NAMSA) and the UK MOD.
Ridgeway has been closely involved in ordnance movements in connection with the Al Yamamah contract between the governments of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) and the United Kingdom. Ridgeway organised and controlled the movement of live munitions mainly for BAE Systems but also for agents of KSA over a period of 5 years.
Working closely with several large European Aerospace companies we provide specialist freight services for the movement of hazardous and security classified consignments. Much of this work revolves around large defence programmes for the production of next generation weapons systems. These programmes typically involve the teaming of several large European and US companies all manufacturing different components of weapon systems.
This process involves the continual international movement of hazardous and / or security classified equipment often in challenging circumstances in terms of maintaining compliance with regulations and meeting commercial deadlines. Ridgeway has literally grown up with many of these programmes and their replacement programmes.
