Japan – Tsunami & Fukushima Disaster

In the wake of the tsunami in Japan, Logenix arranged for dual cargo and passenger flights to return immediate responders from the Fairfax County Fire Department and their equipment to the US. The first responders to the disaster brought with them 32 tons of rescue equipment and medical supplies for urban search and rescue operations. Given the proximity of the search and rescue locations to the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant, extra attention was given in order to bring home the equipment along with the Fairfax County First Responders. To clear the equipment of radioactivity concerns, Logenix interfaced with the airlines’ Automated Manifest System (AMS).
