netcon int. can be trusted to safely transport defence equipment and dangerous materials, including:

  • Hazardous goods Class 1 (explosive materials)
  • Hazardous goods Classes 2 to 6, 8, 9 (including lithium-ion batteries and equipment)
  • Civil and military defence equipment

In addition, netcon provides a wide range of logistical side services, such as customs clearance, Europe-wide permit applications and cargo carrier packing, ensuring the shipping process runs smoothly and efficiently.

Charter shipments for military equipment

Special regulated goods, including defense equipment, dangerous explosives, as well as oversized and heavy-load project cargos, often require a chartered vessel.

netcon inc. has extensive experience in international ocean freight services, with an excellent understanding of the requirements of defence industry clients and connections to chartering brokers, vessel owners, and forwarding-partners.

Certain cargo loads can also be individually tailored to the type of chartered vessel or conditions, considering timeframe, chartering time period, the type of cargo vessel, the costs and space requirements.

Efficient port and terminal handling services

netcon.inc provides international transshipment services for multiple cargoes, including containers, project and ro-ro cargoes, as well as hazardous goods through scheduled and chartered ships.

Individual port requirements and handling methods in the field of customs clearances, terminal handling or delivery and collection methods can pose significant difficulties if handling is incomplete or incorrectly performed. This may lead to financial loss and delays, which is why you should always have an expert verify the procedures.

netcon specialises in the following areas:

  • Applying for specific port numbers and references
  • Pre-declarations customers process, including for goods requiring permits
  • Steps required by customs for approval
  • Organising required documentation
  • Accounting via specific IT port systems

Seaworthy stowing and packing services

Protecting cargo is a crucial part of every sea, air or land-based freight shipment. As one of the most experienced operators in the sector, netcon has extensive knowledge when it comes to the safe packing, securing and stowing of cargo carriers including containers, pallets and flat racks.

Military equipment and hazardous goods are often required to follow individual guidelines and internationally-applicable regulations and, in the case of class 1 hazardous goods (explosives), need to pass through specific monitoring bodies before they can be released for despatch and subsequently shipped or transported.

Additional rules that must be followed concerning seaworthy storage include:

  • Packing certification
  • Sealing of the cargo carriers by customs/shipper
  • Accurate labelling of the cargo carrier
  • Correct weight distribution

netcon inc. can be trusted throughout this process, ensuring good reach their destination safely, reliably, and in accordance with all relevant rules and regulations.
