End-to-end engine logistics

[ September 27, 2013   //   ]

Kuehne + Nagel launched a supply chain solution designed specifically for aircraft engines at the European Aerospace MRO Conference in London on 24 September. It ensures reliable and safe transportation and storage of engines with certified processes and staff.

Aerospace companies are demanding dedicated engine-handling services says the Swiss-owned forwarder which points out that while all technical work is regulated in detail by airworthiness organisations, IATA and others that for the logistics part of the operation is still quite generic and hardly reflects the very high value of aircraft engines.

KN has designed a tailor-made, dedicated solution, said Erik Goedhart, Senior vice president aerospace. There are regional dedicated competence centers, special training programmes and engine logistics processes.KN also assesses road and air carriers.
