NAPCO Afghanistan NAPCO International NAPCO DMCC Products Services Responsibility Contact NAPCO
NAPCO International has two classes of assets:
Its know-how and contacts built up over many years of operations in some of the most dangerous parts of Afghanistan.
Its own fleet of trucks. NAPCO operates a truck fleet in addition to renting trucks from the market. This ensures that the tankers are always fit for purpose and, where necessary, modified to fit in with the downloading procedures are particular destinations - the case study below of Tirin Kot highlights how NAPCO fitted NATO-standard valves, which speeded up downloading enormously. Large contracts have dedicated fleets of tankers, eliminating the risk of contamination from other fuels. Trucks which are used to carry jet fuel are epoxy lined and not used for any other product.

NAPCO treats its customers as partners. Afghanistan is a difficult country to work in, especially supplying the military, and problems are to be expected, which NAPCO always work with the customer to solve. For example, to ensure consistently high quality of fuel to Tirin Kot we worked with our customer and engaged an independent company to perform tests on the fuel before it is dispatched.

Currently the company makes deliveries to Kandahar Air Field, Bagram, Kabul International Airfield and Tirin Kot in Uruzgan province.
We have also imported other commodities vital to Afghanistan's reconstruction including bitumen and cement giving us this obvious advantage of having a developed infra-structure to support our logistics operations across Afghanistan.

Being a multinational company with offices in Dubai and in major cities of Afghanistan we have the ability of structuring alliances, partnerships and joint ventures to achieve set company objectives. Recently we formed an alliance with a well-known international oil trading firm, and are importing substantial quantities of jet fuel across the country's northern border with our own railhead discharge points at Turghundhi and Hairatan. Nowhere in Afghanistan is off-limits to us: we have delivered fuel successfully in Zabul and Helmand provinces, areas where US and NATO troops are battling a ferocious insurgency.

NAPCO's Business in Afghanistan Today
NAPCO currently employs 80 staff. Its head office is in Kabul with subsidiary offices in Kandahar, Herat, Mazar-i-Sharif, Hairatan and Peshawar. It has three storage facilities of 2 million litres each at Kandahar, Hairatan and Pul-i-Charkhi, Kabul.

Deliveries trade record to Bagram, Kandahar, Mazar, Kunduz, Khost and Herat. Because the company is Afghan-owned, has good contacts around the country, good convoy protection policies and its CEO from a prominent Pashtun family, NAPCO's record of keeping its convoys secure is better than foreign-owned companies despite operating in some of the most unstable parts of the country.
