SR Technics expands Middle East partnership with Kuehne + Nagel
At the MRO Middle East Conference and Exhibition in Dubai, SR Technics and Kuehne + Nagel announced that their successful partnership to provide customers of SR Technics with warehousing, spare parts logistics and distribution services would continue to develop.
The aerospace industry in the Middle East is rapidly expanding. According to SR Technics, its Regional Distribution Centre (RDC) in Dubai is already handling 65,000 annual transactions and it plans to almost double the transactions to 120,000 over the next five years. In line with the increasing volume, SR Technics is also further developing its customer support services. To underpin such growth, the decision was taken to extend the partnership with Kuehne + Nagel in this region.
The RDC service that SR Technics delivers with Kuehne + Nagel’s assistance includes 24/7 global management of inbound and outbound logistics for serviceable and unserviceable aircraft parts. Furthermore parts inspection, warehouse storage, brokerage, inventory control and a range of other supply chain services are provided.
