In late 2013, the United Nations Disengagement Force (UNDOF) of Syria needed Winter Gear for their troops to carry out their duties. Unfortunately, they were unable to obtain the goods on time and called upon American Procurement Services with an urgent request to source, acquire and deliver these products within 45 days.
American Procurement Services worked with eight of their suppliers to provide top quality extreme weather gear from reputable brands like Northface, Arc’teryx, Alpha, Cabela’s and Hydroflask. Detailed scheduling and constant communication with suppliers ensured a synched delivery of all items to APSCO’s warehouse. The large order was compiled, inspected and re-packed for export at APSCO’s facility before being transported to Portland International Airport. With the cooperation of DHL, the shipment was carried out of PDX via airfreight, arriving in Golan Heights, Israel just before the winter storms.
