Herfurth Logistics and Redfort Group look at developing helicopter-logistics more intensively by using the port of Zeebrugge as central hub for worldwide movements of helicopters. The Redfort Group, based in Auckland, NZ is acknowledged throughout the world as experts in aviation logistics with specialization in helicopters used for civil purposes (staff/crew changes on off-shore platforms, rescue operations, private transport, etc..). For many years now, Redfort has been cooperating with Herfurth Logistics to assist with shipping, terminal and clearance operations of the high-value machines.
The idea now is to set up a central hub in Zeebrugge to bring in new helicopters which are mostly leased by customers from any part of the world and returned once leasing term has come to an end. The logistic operations involve tailor-made solutions for each type of helicopter performed by an experienced and knowledgeable team. This is truly a confirmation of a long-term partnership which started almost 7 years ago and which will continue to bring value-added services in an interesting and promising niche market.
