Aerospace logistics provider B&H Worldwide has been appointed by Ontic as its specialist warehouse and inventory management company for worldwide Ontic-owned AOG support assets. A B&H dedicated, climate-controlled facility at Heathrow will act as principal service centre with a central store providing a 24/7/365 operation.
All items that form part of the inventory are produced by Ontic, a wholly owned subsidiary of BBA Aviation plc and a leading manufacturer or OEM-licenced parts, which also provides MRO services for legacy aerospace platforms from facilities around the globe.
The facility’s close proximity to London Heathrow with its unparalleled range of international destinations makes it an ideal place to locate the centre, it said.
All shipments from Heathrow will be coordinated through B&H’s unique OnTrack web portal where customers can login to have their parts despatched – with full instructions – at any hour of the day or night. Parts are received at B&H’s Heathrow facility from all over the world with many being integral elements of the exchange program Ontic operates with its customers. From there the logged-in customer has a choice of how the items are received, can see where the stock is, what the stock levels are and see photos of it. Once the required item is selected he can complete the whole process via OnTrack.
