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 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. 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; and CCTV surveillance.
Speaking of the facility, Burkhard Andrich, senior VP Aircraft Component Services of Lufthansa Technik AG said: “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.”
