  2. yep we've gone down that line to. there is a private company that has an office in pjhq. It is heavily involved in the logistic chain of both the UK and US military.
     
  3. At least there is nothing like that in the IPTF or UNCA :oops:
     
  4. oh yes those new tank transporters that so far have managed to wreck 1 challanger. well they will be driven by civvies in peace and they'll be specialist reserves so they'll be driving them in war.
    Someone put the whole idea to me of 3rd line being totally privatised eg Eddie Storbart providing the transport. they said the australians had that system.
     
  5. Stobarts would do a half way decent job, at a good price

    So no doubt, we'll use Trans-America Trucking instead

    Or friggin U-Haul

    Shouldn't have broken the world 100m record and then been caught on drugs then should he? :D
     
  7. Does anyone out there know any of these private companies, as I was thinking if I got out and went to work for one of them and then joined the TA…. I could get paid by both for doing the same job!!!! :D

    Form your own company, put up business case with prices, double the costs, don't deliver on time, blame MOD and add more to the costs. You are bound to get the contract and a repeat contract. :?
     
  9. X-Inf,

    Do you fancy being business partners, we could end up being the next Richard Branson’s.

    :D

  11. Titanic - try Global Risk http://www.globalrisk.uk.com/ or

    Don't join the TA , you will earn 4 times as much working for Global and the conditions will be better. Best though, if you don't like it, you can quit and jump on the first plane home.

    And you will have some job security :D
