Aerospace spare parts outsourcing company Aloia Aerospace has given the contract to manage its warehousing, handling and inventory to B&H Worldwide.
The Sao Paulo, Brazil-headquartered company, which has its main operations in Miami will use B&H’s London Heathrow logistics facility and its integrated IT system FirstTrac to manage inventory.
Through establishing a European parts facility, Aloia Aerospace will be able to extend its operations in the UK and Europe.
The parts managed through B&H’s Heathrow Control Tower will include tooling, electronic parts and paint for a variety of aircraft types.
Aloia will despatch parts to customers through FirstTrac, which will be processed by B&H at Heathrow and sent to their destination with notifications being sent back to Aloia throughout the shipping process.
Seth Profit, group sales director says: “Aloia were clear that the visibility and advanced features provided by B&H Worldwide’s FirstTrac platform was a key component of their decision to choose B&H Worldwide. Our speed of response and 24/7 manned capabilities will also enable them to serve their customers across these new regions as they develop their services.”
