1. What are the most problematic aspects of the logistics chain for your company in its main projects?
For this project we have lost valuable time due to delivery of overseas materials and clearing customs, the second concern has been the racecourses that sub-contractors can provide in terms of skill and equipment
2. What is it about your suppliers that make them stand out?
Our suppliers are not a group I work with constantly but there detail to quality and delivery schedule has been constant
3. Do you have preferred suppliers for each leg on the logistics chain?
I have no answer for this question as it is not in my scope
4. What does the heavy-lift and project cargo industry do well and where is credit due in terms of services provided by the industry?
The preparation of both my heavy-lift team and transportation has been outstanding they have been involved in every aspect of the tasks given to them sharing ideas as well as being able to help solve critical issues
5. What is the driving force behind your choice of heavy lift provider?
A heavy-lift provider must be able to produce workable solutions to the work site bringing technical and experience to the site, provide flexibility to site conditions and problem solving on site.
6. Which sectors in particular are driving the project cargo pipeline in your region?
LNG is our prime driving force
7. Which economies in particular are attracting the interest of your company?
I am unable to comment on the companies interests as a independent contractor
8. Do you think your region needs to import equipment from other regions to ensure that the project pipeline is not restricted by any lack of equipment?
The equipment is available in the region for most part but due to the influx of projects in the area shortages are experienced in supply

Skills training and on site experience are crucial aspects that need to be addressed
