ATL Is Logistics

Aria Target Logistic Company (ATL) is an Afghan-owned business with a long and successful record of supplying and transporting tools, materials and specially modified Conexes, as well managing air cargo assets and operations throughout all 34 provinces of Afghanistan. On average, ATL supplies and transports $1.5 million USD worth of materiel on a monthly basis on behalf of ISAF and US military customers.

ATL was created by a team of highly qualified engineers and business professionals who recognized underserved markets in both the logistics and construction industries. Beginning in 2006, ATL demonstrated that Afghans can take a real, meaningful role in the reconstruction and future of their country.

Headquartered in Kabul, ATL’s strategically located sub offices are in Kandahar, Herat, and Mazar-e-Sharif provinces, with satellite operations in Dubai, UAE, as well as a San Francisco, California office allowing the coordination of logistics and services from the USA. ATL has registered with the Afghanistan Investment Support Agency (AISA) and Ministry of Commerce, carrying all required licensing to conduct business in the country of Afghanistan.

The effective movement of materials, goods and equipment throughout the country demands in-depth, local knowledge. ATL understands Afghanistan’s diverse social structure and cultural backgrounds. We know the geography, the customs and the political dynamics of a country in transition. We are active in both government work and in the private sector, and continually adjust our approach accordingly to meet the specific needs of each client and each project.

ATL backs this knowledge base with an effective human terrain network of skilled professionals and laborers with access to all provinces of Afghanistan, which includes regions with the highest security risks, specifically in the north, south and the east provinces of the country.

Our valuable resources of our professional staff, capital equipment, tools, proven bonding capacity and solid past experience is our formula for success.

We’re not only bound to the highest standards in engineering, logistics, and construction, but also to the local social environments in which we operate. This ensures fair and equitable human resource policies that are ethnically and gender-balanced, as well as our Afghan-First Policy for procurement, recruitment, and daily labor.

ATL’s operating principles remain:

• Founded on quality processes
• Environmentally and socially responsible
• Tailored to Logistical Excellence
• Adapted to new technologies and solutions
• Competitively priced
