TNT Express to Move Lufthansa Bombardier Aviation Services' Mission-critical Parts in Germany
By: TNT Express June 30, 2014
Lufthansa Bombardier Aviation Services has awarded TNT Express the transportation contact to ship mission-critical aviation parts within Germany. As part of the deal, TNT Express collects the parts from Bombardier's warehouse in Groß-Gerau between 10 p.m. and 11 p.m. and delivers them to LBAS aircraft maintenance engineers and mechanics in Berlin Schoenefeld Airport the next morning before 6 a.m.
These employees service, repair and overhaul Bombardier Business Jets. They start their working day at 6 a.m. The consistent and timely delivery of aircraft spare parts to them is critical to prevent the occurrence of costly “Aircraft on Ground" (AOG) situations, a term in aviation maintenance indicating that a problem is serious enough to prevent an aircraft from flying.
The service provided by TNT Express includes the simultaneous handling of various weights and sizes, from parcels to pallets, including materials qualifying as “dangerous goods.”
