On November 1, 2020, a team of nine Akima Logistics Services (ALS) employees walked onto their new jobsites in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), where they would be providing logistics support for the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) Weapon System. This project is notable for two reasons: The contract launched Akima into a new business area: missile defense, and Akima employees underwent 60 days of intensive training before boarding a flight to their new residence in the Middle East.
