CEVA to operate Gulfstream parts hub at Heathrow

Gulfstream Aerospace Corp has appointed CEVA Logistics to operate a new European Parts Distribution Centre at London Heathrow Airport.
The facility will support Gulfstream’s business aircraft customers in the UK, Ireland, mainland Europe and the Nordics with urgent high-usage items.
It will also provide rapid-response support for technicians from Gulfstream’s service centre at London Luton Airport and Gulfstream Field and Airborne Support Team members based throughout Europe.
The facility replaces a previous operation at Madrid Airport. Its new location at London Heathrow provides access to the largest number of direct, non-stop flights available from any airport in Europe.
Since 2008, Gulfstream’s European fleet has almost doubled, from 109 aircraft to more than 200.
The new facility, operated by CEVA within its main London Heathrow complex, comprises approximately 8,000 sq ft of dedicated space, and is operational 24/7/365.
It is Customs-bonded, providing Gulfstream with the opportunity to eliminate duties on inventory being held for re-export. In addition to operating the facility, CEVA will take care of all imports, exports, ground transportation and Customs procedures.
The new European Parts Distribution Centre is expected to hold over $50m in parts inventory by the end of 2015.
