Defence and Logistics

Delivering comprehensive logistics and remote camp services solutions and maintaining diverse naval resources.

Logistics and Remote Camp Services. Some of the most remote outposts in the world are bustling with activity as oil and gas, mining and metallurgy, and petrochemical companies explore and develop natural resources; and international peacekeeping and military manoeuvers place troops in isolated base camps.  Comprehensive logistics support is an important key to success in either type of operation – including delivery of industry-leading practices and procedures that support companies and militaries wherever and whenever they need to house, feed, transport and communicate with employees and troops.

SNC-Lavalin O&M Logistics, a member of the SNC-Lavalin Group, supports projects in the most remote locations in Canada and at the end of some of the world’s most demanding supply chains.  Our teams have proven experience, including providing comprehensive support to the Canadian Department of National Defence on various domestic and international projects and supporting various companies in the Canadian oil and gas, and mining and metallurgy sectors.

Naval and Marine Support Services. Naval and marine organizations in Canada patrol one of the longest shorelines in the world, navigating rough waters and extreme weather.  With limited resources in a vast landscape, it is critical that vessels maintain high reliability and availability and minimize time in harbour.

Keeping ships safely in the water requires sophisticated Operations and Maintenance solutions and the backing of a skilled organization with rigorously-tested infrastructure. The SNC-Lavalin O&M Defence team provides comprehensive naval and marine support, including engineering design, project management, corrective and preventative maintenance, and logistics support. We are one of the first Canadian defence companies to have an integrated ISO 9001:2008, ISO 14001:2004 and OHSAS 18001:2007 management system for project management and the provision of in-service support (ISS) to seagoing vessels. SNC-Lavalin O&M Defence has expanded from supporting one class of vessel to currently supporting thirteen classes of vessel and several payload and shore stations. By the end of 2013, SNC-Lavalin Defence Programs Inc. will be supporting 58 vessels. The Royal Canadian Navy counts on us!

Air Logistics Services. Organizing and managing global passenger and heavy cargo airlift requires access to limited and unique resources and an ability to act quickly and knowledgeably to client needs. SNC-Lavalin Air Logistics Inc. meets the passenger and cargo airlift needs of military, governmental, commercial, non-governmental (NGOs) and relief organization clients on time and in locations that are often harsh and remote.

SNC-Lavalin Air Logistics expedites air charters for relief organizations responding to major disasters and has aided relief efforts such as the tsunami relief in the Far East; earthquake relief in China, Iran, Haiti and Chile; and flood disaster relief in Bangladesh, Pakistan and Myanmar. We have supported numerous military organizations, providing airlift services into and out of challenging, remote locations such as Afghanistan, Iraq and former Soviet bloc countries; and we have delivered effective air logistics solutions into most parts of Africa for a wide range of clients.

We specialize in moving outsize cargo using airlift solutions that include Antonov 124, Ilyushin 176, Boeing 747 freighter, Airbus 300 freighter, and a full range of smaller, fully-capable aircraft. With a worldwide network of resources and contacts, SNC-Lavalin Air Logistics Inc. develops and delivers timely and reliable solutions for our clients’ air logistics challenges around the world and around the clock.
