Unit Export were awarded a contract to supply and deliver nine (9) Specialist All-Terrain Vehicles as part of the UNDP Border Management in Northern Afghanistan project in Tajikistan.
These will be used to patrol remote and hard to reach border areas along the Tajikistan-Afghanistan border. This region is very mountainous and there are hardly any roads and very few tracks. These highly capable Polaris ATVs provide the project with a rapid response solution to mobilizing their patrols into difficult terrain at short notice and were also provided with infrared lights and communications devices for patrol squads as well as spare parts and consumables for maintenance of the equipment.
The ultimate aim of the project is to enhance the capacity of Tajikistan/Afghan Border police to manage their border regions, increasing security, fostering cross-border cooperation and the opening of cross-border markets along the Afghanistan- Tajikistan border.
This contract is a follow on of two previous contracts in 2010 and 2012 where Unit Export supplied similar vehicles to the UNDP Office in Tajikistan.
