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."
