Hi
Im a student doing a project on the logistics of De Beers. I need to know how De Beers transport their rough diamonds from DTC Botswana to DTC London; the transport providers (if any), route/countries transited, and the transport cost per typical load. The rough diamond industry is very secretive so it is difficult to research. Or can give me suggestion on how they could transport them, and the countries and costs involved.
I would be grateful for any help or suggestions.

Thank you,
Faris

planning a hold up?
That is secret information.

My guess is private aircraft. Likely a 747 non-stop.
