Entrusted to decide ‘What to buy, When to buy and How to buy’

Although military and commercial supply chains differ in the challenges they face in terms of equipment and environment; they essentially have similar drivers - getting the right part, to the right place, at the right time, at the lowest cost.

As a recognised expert in Defence Logistics, TVS LOGISTICS is a strategic partner to the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD). We currently manage in excess of 200,000 NATO items for the UK MoD, a number of which are unique and complex. These include armoured fighting vehicles, construction vehicles, workshop spares, clothing, food, fuel, medical equipment, field catering, pharmaceuticals and general engineering hardware.

In the UK, TVS Logisticsoperates 7 warehouses and delivers to ‘Purple Gate’ which is the UK MoD’s distribution network, ultimately supporting the UK Armed Forces on a global basis either during active operational engagement, training camp manoeuvres or peacetime operations. These key initiatives ensure Armed Forces (Army, Navy and Air Force) get what they want, when they want it.
The application of our sophisticated IT system (Msys), capable people, systems and processes; and extensive worldwide Infrastructure allows our Defence customers to have total visibility from order placement to delivery, enabling them to make informed decisions.
