HAMMAR Government & Defence

Military logistics is the discipline of planning and carrying out the movement and maintenance of military forces. In military science, maintaining one's supply lines while disrupting those of the enemy is a crucial—some would say the most crucial—element of military strategy, since an armed force without resources and transportation is defenseless.
Since the rise of containerization in 1930’s, all military forces around the world have used million of containers for transportation. The military tasks are quite specified and many machines and tools have invented for just these requirements. Therefore, we have developed HAMMAR Defence Line ® for just this specific need. HAMMAR Defence Line ® is a proper tool to make the jobs done in the Fastest, Safest, Most Economic way and the most important thing is to Accomplish the mission!”
