U-Freight making inroads in supply chain management
24 / 03 / 2008
U-FREIGHT is seeking to build its presence in the market for the provision of supply chain management services to manufacturers, operators and vendors involved in the global aviation and aerospace industry.
The company’s hub in Singapore has developed a regional service centre and become recognised as a key service provider to the aviation and aerospace industry in Singapore.
TH Ong, managing director of U-Freight Singapore, said: “Operators know only too well that stationary aircraft on the apron prove conclusively that time really is money in the airline industry. Whether it is a critical AOG (Aircraft on Ground) shipment that needs to move from Munich to Montreal, or from Brussels to Beijing, our network of offices and collection services means that we can offer cost-effective, reliable logistics solutions to the aviation and aerospace industry.”
“We are aware that we are aiming to build our presence in a US$41 billion global aircraft MRO (Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul) sector at a time when it is experiencing significant changes. Increasingly, rather than using facilities in North America and Europe, aircraft operators are sending aircraft to highly skilled repair locations across Asia, which offer a lower cost base.”
