Seko aerospace vertical set for take-off

[ January 27, 2016   //   ]

SEKO Logistics has created a new Aerospace & Aviation industry vertical headed by managing director, Bryan Lowrie (pictured), and headquartered in Dallas, Texas, the world’s second largest aerospace market.

The logistics company has served leading manufacturing and production customers in the industry for a number of years but is now increasing its international focus to earn a bigger share of a market projected to be worth $352 billion by 2023. It currently works with plane-builders and aviation companies that operate them all over the world but most of its business today consists of airfreight imports into the US from global suppliers.

The Seko Logistics network of over 120 offices in 40 countries now includes aerospace and aviation centres of excellence in Europe, the Americas and Asia Pacific, the newest being Farnborough Airport in the UK. Other locations already include France, Denmark, the Netherlands, Turkey and South Korea and these will ultimately be joined by specialists in other leading markets for the industry such as Ireland, Singapore, China, India and Brazil.

As well as general air and ocean freight services, Seko offers project logistics and air charter services. However, its biggest asset is its technology, says Bryan Lowrie. For example, Seko’s warehouse management system incorporates and streamlines production based on the unique requirements of the aerospace community and manages supply chain cost reductions down to piece level.
