DHL scoops new ATR supply chain contract
05 / 09 / 2016
Turboprop aircraft manufacturer ATR has renewed its contract with DHL Supply Chain to provide global inventory management and orders of aircraft spare parts.
The new contract covers a three-year period and it is the third time ATR has renewed its contract with DHL.
The new contract includes inventory management, international distribution of spare parts, as well as operations related to maintenance that require a very high level of responsiveness.
DHL Supply Chain also ensures the management of custom operations for spare parts and equipment, in collaboration with DHL Global Forwarding.
DHL relies on four logistics platforms in managing the distribution of spare parts: a warehouse located in Bonneuil, France; two regional hubs for the US and APAC respectively located in Miami and Singapore; and a warehouse located in Auckland, New Zealand, for local clients.
As part of the new contract, DHL Supply Chain will also carry out kitting operations for ATR.
