So why Drekar?
Because you need results and Drekar delivers on time every time. No exceptions.
Drekar brings years of direct maritime security experience to the table. Pulling from a diverse group of seasoned professionals, and an even more diverse force of international security personnel hailing from a diverse group of nations, we have the ability to quickly tailor a perfect blend of experience, training and cost effectiveness in each security team we assemble.
Many of our clients’ previous security providers lacked the required experience and reliability, or perhaps they used forces on a job that could be done more affordably by a team of equally trained security professionals from other nations. In either case, their lack of experience or inability to have the requisite pool of qualified personnel created cost overruns that should never have existed.
Drekar provides comprehensive personnel training that implements the strictest vetting procedures to produce the highest level of professionalism and vigilance. We operate in full compliance with ICOC, ISO & SAMI ensuring that every piece of documentation required is in perfect order. All training and procedures exceed IMO recommendations.
Drekar provides years of logistical support in high-risk maritime and land environments. We understand what it takes to get your property and personnel to their destination safely and quickly. We eliminate costly delays by using our years of experience and extensive global networks to mitigate delays caused by improper authorizations or inexperienced in-country personnel. From full kits and fully licensed weapons to off-shore weapons storage and in-county agents who know the local regulations, Drekar has it covered.
Drekar carries $5 million in K&R insurance and meet all BIMCO GUARDCON contract requirements. We maintain the highest levels of accountability with our clients. Trust is hard to come by in any industry, but Drekar has earned the trust of many of the world’s leading transport companies and looks forward to earning yours.
