Afghanistan Fuel Facility Expansion

 

To ensure that DGC International’s clients received consistent, high quality products and services, we added new fuel storage facilities and expanded our capabilities to become a DLA Energy-approved A-lab facility.  Our A-lab adheres to quality specifications and regulatory standards (including ASTM, ISO, and IP). DGC International professionals test samples, manage fuel stocks including JA1, JP8, Diesel and Gasoline and generate detailed fuel analysis reports for the Defense Logistics Agency – Energy (DLA Energy).

As part of this expansion effort, DGC International also added more transport routes and additional staff. Prior to 2013, fuel earmarked for Afghanistan was often tested in Dubai.  With the expansion of the DGC International testing facility, that vital testing could now be done in Afghanistan itself – minimizing costs and potential delays and greatly enhancing customer service.

In support of the coalition forces in Afghanistan, DGC International provides DLA Energy with fuel supply services. DGCI mobilized a logistics team to manage this multi-year contract.  This team of professionals leverages our exceptional logistics supply chain and ensures that our network of customs agents across Central Asia properly facilitate the movement of bulk fuel from several refineries to Afghanistan. Our operational services include fleet management, bulk fuel storage, stock control management, spare parts warehousing, scheduled and unscheduled maintenance, and fuel testing.
