Aerospace logistics firm B&H Worldwide will add its own trucking operation at both Auckland and Christchurch airports in New Zealand.
B&H’s own trucks will now operate daily at New Zealand’s two leading airports for both collections and hand deliveries so that line maintenance engineers receive their AOG and time-critical spares at the point of demand.
Previously, the logistics firm utilised a third-party service provider for the operation.
In order to start the service, the company needed staff to undertake and pass tests showing a full understanding of airside driving and what to do in an emergency.
B&H Worldwide’s New Zealand branch manager Lee Hedges said: “Having Airside access allows us to hand-deliver critically required components directly to line maintenance engineering teams for immediate fitment to the aircraft. ”
Auckland and Christchurch join London Heathrow, Melbourne, Singapore and Sydney as stations where B&H Worldwide has airside access.
