Singapore, June 13, 2012 – To enhance its dedicated spare parts logistics offering to the aerospace industry, Kuehne + Nagel has introduced a new regional hub solution in Singapore.
The new hub is part of Kuehne + Nagel’s global spare parts logistics solutions and underlines the company’s focus to introduce innovative services for the aerospace market. The new hub solution enables global and regional aerospace customers to supply their clients flexibly with parts and subsystems according to their individual needs and timeframes.
The Kuehne + Nagel warehouse facility, located within the Free Trade Zone of the Airport Logistics Park of Singapore (ALPS), is exclusively dedicated to aerospace customers. Deliveries to operating airport terminals are handled within the shortest possible lead times. The facility comprises state-of-the art technology and fulfills all requirements of companies from the aerospace industry such as
- 24/7-accessibility and service
- Areas for temperature- and humidity sensitive cargo
- Quarantine area
- Bonded warehousing
- Consignment and Vender Management capabilities
- Access control and limitations
- CCTV surveillance
“Kuehne + Nagel offered the best industry customised solution especially with the dedicated focus on aerospace for the total regional warehouse,” said Dr. Burkhard Andrich, Senior Vice President Aircraft Component Services of Lufthansa Technik AG. “This enables us, besides good transit times and effective transport cost, to have our parts being handled by aerospace professionals. Aerospace parts are usually small and of low weight but of high product value. Therefore it is risky to have them stored together with other goods. We are very happy to service our Asia Pacific customers out of this regional aerospace hub.”
“We are proud to offer our global and regional aerospace customers this additional dedicated solution. It is a valuable addition to Kuehne + Nagel’s Supply the Sky portfolio of services developed to meet the requirements of the aerospace industry,” said Erik Goedhart, Senior Vice President Aerospace at Kuehne + Nagel. “It is planned to roll-out the new solution globally.”
