Our Mission Statement
AVGO provides reliable and consistent delivery of Dangerous Goods transportation and associated services Worldwide. We do this by combining the know-how and the attitude of our employees with the speed of transit of our Global network to achieve the fastest delivery for our customers’ shipments. We will be known as a trusted company that does not cut corners but strives to protect its customers and employees in all aspects of Dangerous Goods handling.
Like every business we have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and have seen the impact on our client’s activity. I am so proud of all our team members who have worked so hard to get the job done day after day. They have put themselves directly in harm’s way to successfully maintain our service levels that our customers have come to expect. When COVID-19 swept through Dubai Airport and reduced available handling staff by 90% they went in and got the job done. This pandemic has made us all realize we have to adapt to everchanging circumstances from Lockdowns to Working from home and social distancing and as such I decided to pursue our plan of expansion in 2021 and onwards. We successfully established AVGO Training and received the GCAA (General Civil Aviation Authority) approval to train DG category 1 to 12 as well as offering soft skills training through our team of free lance trainers. We moved all our staff to our new Dubai facility where Operations and Customer Focus Teams are together, improving teamwork and communication. We are now able to offer classroom training from Dubai and from our Sharjah facilities facilitating learning for our students in the training school.
We are looking forward to the World emerging from out of this pandemic stronger and smarter and look forward to welcoming back our customers as they too return to their offices and resume more normal business operations.
