Aviation Aftermarket Logistics - Spare Parts and MRO
Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) expenditures are a significant proportion of an airline’s costs. Not only do DHL understand the need for optimizing your supply chain to reduce these costs, but we have the capabilities to execute your wishes, without delay.
Logistics, procurement and MRO in the aviation industry involve the sourcing and management of high value, critical parts upon which the safe movement of passengers and cargo depends.
Vast amounts of money are lost for every minute that an aircraft is grounded. Equally large amounts are lost in poorly optimized, high cost inventories. As a result, aerospace corporations require a highly flexible and efficient supply chain to ensure that airlines are promptly supplied with all the required spare parts and components, from a mini-screw to a 15 - meter tail unit, anytime, anywhere.
