A remarkable journey traveled by the Doha 2006 Torch Relay, covering over 50,000 km, 15 countries in a span of 55 days, began with the lighting ceremony in Doha, Qatar on Oct 8th 2006. It signified the beginning of the longest relay in the history of the Asian Games event. The journey concluded with the final torchbearer entering Khalifa Stadium to ignite the flame of 15th Asian Games on 1st December 2006. Symbolizing the spirit and friendship of world's most populous continent, the Games Torch is of great significance. On the journey route the torch's first touchdown was at New Delhi.

Aqua Logistics was required to pick up the material at origin, air freight it from Sydney and Doha to Delhi, also required was having it cleared at Delhi airport and deliver it to Indian Olympic Committee. Aqua Logistics had to procure necessary documents from different government agencies without which duty exemption clearance would not have been possible.

Aqua Logistics performed the activities of customs clearance and delivery of torches, fuel canisters, torch-bearer uniforms, caps, logos and other promotional items to the destination within a span of 2 days to Indian Olympic Committee.

Aqua Logistics also provided reverse logistics services which included returning a few of the torches back after event in Delhi, for which permissions had to be obtained from Indian Olympic Committee and torches and other goods were then air freighted back to Doha.
