IAF launches Speedex Contract
  • It was concluded in June 2018 between with Balmer Lawrie & Co Ltd and Ashok Travel and Tours for air and surface component respectively.

About the SPEEDEX contract:

  • The contract aims to overcome delay in piecemeal dispatch of consignment and to move operationally urgent stores by air and normal consignments by surface mode.
  • This will facilitate door to door pickup and delivery facility with fixed timelines, lesser than speed post.
  • It will help to enhance IAF's support maintenance activities and improve operational preparedness.

Need for this contract:

  • The ability to lift, shift and move is the essence of sound transportation management.
  • It has a profound impact on all principles of military logistics.
  • In the past, IAF had been using hired transport for the movement of cargo to various IAF bases, which resulted in delay in dispatch of critically required stores.
  • Therefore, to overcome this delay and reduce time taken for transportation of items and ensure early availability of stores to the field units, this contract was formulated.
