In 2017, EduTeq completed the implementation of a turnkey contract with the Ministry of Education in Eritrea. The project included the provision of equipment, installation, basic training, and other services for the vocational training equipment supplied to the various workshops across three sites in Eritrea.

The contract included over two thousand different items (over 75k individual items) ranging from hand drills to CNC machines. EduTeq successfully delivered and installed all items. Equipment was consolidated from various points across the world and shipped to Eritrea in 41 shippers’ own containers. Once at site, the equipment was distributed to the multiple workshops and contract services were completed, including the establishment of an asset management system.

Global logistics included twelve shipments from around the world, from ports in the UK, Rotterdam, Germany, Italy, Singapore, China, and Taiwan. The utilisation of shippers’ own containers allowed for secure onsite storage at each site, and fork-lift trucks were included for each site to enable heavy goods unloading.
