Look at Chee Soon Juan ranting and whining on why SAF is using commercial shipping company to ship “sensitive” military equipment. Instead of ranting, he should have done the research to know that it is a norm for militaries around the world to use commercial shipping companies to ship military equipment during peace time!!
Singapore has used commercial shipping lines to transport military vehicles and equipment overseas for decades as that is the most cost-effective and efficient method, said Defence Minister Ng Eng Hen yesterday.
It is the norm for militaries to use commercial carriers to ship equipment or vehicles for peacetime training. Many defence companies also do it to deliver hardware to customers or for exhibition displays, he added.
“Only commercial carriers and their vast network of inter-connected ships and ports have the capability to transport heavy vehicles around the globe,” Dr Ng told reporters during a visit to Choa Chu Kang military camp.
