Specific maintenance challenges
The repair cycle in this sector tends to behave unpredictably and erratically. Success therefore depends upon the simultaneous management of a variety of operations. Replacement parts must be at the point of use within the required deadline so that machines can get up and running again in the shortest possible time.
As operators favor new products and markets, they often become concerned about the risk of breakdown within their supply chain. However, only a handful of operators have complete supply chain visibility. In this difficult situation, externalization through GEODIS' logistics solutions allows airline companies and MROs to concentrate on their profession’s core business while improving supply chain efficiency and flexibility. After-sales logistics also falls within our skill set.
Our offer responds to the challenges of this need:
- TAT (Turn Around Time) reduction
- Availability for transportation and delivery 24/7, 365 days a year
- Optimization and management of your spare parts supply
Transportation solutions adapted to your level of urgency
GEODIS offers 3 types of transportation solutions to meet your needs:

Repair management: reverse logistics from the client to the supplier
GEODIS offers complete visibility of the repair cycle so that operators can monitor commitment with respect to maintenance center and technician repair time. Our tool – the only one of its kind on the market – lets you use the part and serial number to follow the entire process during each step of the repair cycle. This means that you can locate your part with precision, control your supply, manage the maintenance plan’s penalties, and anticipate ordering a new part if necessary.
