High-level service will be operating 24/7 from a logistics service hub built in Seattle
Sterling, a Kuehne+Nagel company, has launched a global aerospace service designed to expedite urgently needed aircraft parts from one of the largest original equipment manufacturers (OEM) based in Seattle, Washington.
The high-level service will be operating 24/7 from a logistics service hub built in Seattle, staffed with Sterling drivers and a new fleet of vehicles, says an official release from Sterling.
As a trusted logistics partner for delivering time-critical aerospace solutions, Sterling’s new shuttle service offers a secure and expeditious solution, complete with a comprehensive chain of custody protocols to guarantee the integrity of every shipment.
“Sterling’s newly established Seattle logistics service hub is overseen by aerospace logistics professionals, featuring a specialised team of drivers and a dedicated fleet of vehicles. This configuration focuses on the initial stages of transportation, effectively mitigating associated risks at the onset of the shipment. “
Aircraft parts from the OEM will be picked up immediately after a client’s request, providing the fastest way to retrieve and deliver needed parts to airline operators all over the world, the release added. “It will help minimise prolonged maintenance periods, and the associated costs incurred while awaiting the delivery of essential components when an aircraft is grounded.”
Robert Broderick, EVP, Sterling says: “We developed this new service based upon the voice of our customers — they told us what they needed and we’ve delivered. Sterling is committed to meeting their needs with fast and dedicated first-mile support.”
