Lufthansa Technik Logistic Services (LTLS) will be drawing on DHL Global Forwarding to handle its transportation of spare parts and tools across the Atlantic.

The air and ocean freight specialist from the wider DHL group will make around 25,000 transatlantic shipments each year with a total mass of 550 tonnes, including journeys from Germany to America with other parts returning from Canada, Mexico and Puerto Rico.

Andreas Meisel, Managing Director of LTLS, said: “Optimising supply chains has become one of the key objectives in many industries; in the aviation industry this also includes Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) areas.

“With DHL Global Forwarding we have found a partner that has the necessary know-how and, with its global presence, the ability to tailor its solutions to meet our needs.”

Asides delivery of spare parts to LTLS storage facilities, DHL will arrange time-critical shipments and handle transport of AOG (Aircraft on Ground) items and hazardous materials.

DHL will also support LTLS with its freight control tower service, which monitors all transport flows and optimises processes through detailed analyses.

Thomas George, COO DHL Global Forwarding, commented: “Our industry knowledge and longstanding experience in the Aerospace and Aviation industry allow us to provide highly efficient solutions and – thanks to the strong teamwork with Lufthansa Technik Logistik Services – we continue to expand and build on these solutions.

“Establishing common standards ensures process stability, transparency and savings.”
