International freight service and logIn Singapore, the U-Freight Group (UFL) has opened a new humidity-controlled logistics facility, for the handling and storage of aircraft engines and aviation components. The Humidity Control Room, measuring nine metres long, 5.2 metres wide and four metres high, is housed within UFL’s wholly-owned Logistics Centre in Singapore, which is TAPA-certified, has 24-hour manned security and is equipped with CCTV monitoring, as well as a PCSC Card Access Control system.

This latest initiative supports UFL’s decision in 2008 to build its presence in the market for the provision of supply chain management services to manufacturers, operators and vendors involved in the global aviation and aerospace industry.

There are four main categories of traffic at which UFL is targeting its MRO logistics services: Aircraft parts moved for installation on an aircraft; parts shipped in for overhaul and then returned to the original location; parts moved to another location after repair and overhaul; and parts returned after loan to another operator.
