Frequently asked questions

What is aerospace logistics?

Aerospace logistics involves all the steps required to move and store goods (including finished goods, spare parts, and components) within the aerospace and defense supply chain. When done right, it ensures on-time delivery and the meeting of aerospace contract terms. 

What are the challenges associated with aerospace logistics?

  • Lack of control and visibility across the global supply chain. 
  • Geo-political & geo-environmental issues that affect the flow of goods. 
  • Heavy dependency on a few suppliers or carriers to deliver parts of goods, which reduces aerospace supply chain resilience. 
  • Handling & storage of large goods. 
  • Lack of workers skilled in managing these technical goods. 
  • Inability to intelligently forecast & meet market demand.  

How to choose a logistics partner for your aeronautical business?

The aeronautical industry is predicted to grow at a CAGR value of 25.5% from 2022 to 2027. To cash in on this growth momentum, it would benefit to partner with a technology-enabled aerospace logistics provider that has a global reach, expertise in your sector, ability to forecast the future trends, and offer the right operational outlook.  

How to manage aerospace logistics?

  • Build & execute a comprehensive & agile aerospace logistics plan. 
  • Coordinate with a network of suppliers, carriers, and third-party providers of aerospace logistics services. 
  • Maintaining control over inventory levels and transport flows. 
  • Create contingency plans to manage the logistics flow in case of disruptions a.

What are the tiers of aerospace supply chain?

In aerospace logistics, there are 3 tiers of suppliers that support aerospace OEMs and the military:  Tier 1, Tier 2, and Tier 3. Tier 3 manufactures the basic components that are sent to tier 2 companies that assemble these components into subsystems. From here the subsystems are sent to tier 1 suppliers who build  major components or systems that are shipped to the OEMS.
