SEKO Logistics has created a new aerospace and aviation industry division.
The new sector is headed by Bryan Lowrie, managing director, who will be headquartered in Dallas (US), the world’s second largest aerospace market.
SEKO has served leading manufacturing and production customers in the industry for a number of years. Now it is increasing its international focus to earn a bigger share of a market projected to be worth $352 billion by 2023.
Lowrie says: “This is a market in which you only make your mark once you’ve earned the trust of the customers and that is what we have been doing over recent years Customers don’t buy from you unless they know you because in the aerospace industry trust in a logistics company is not an insignificant thing.
“If you have a production line building a plane, a ripple effect is caused if someone is late. Customers need the supply chain to be precise and they must be kept well informed.”
SEKO works with the aerospace companies that build the aircraft and aviation companies that operate them – all over the world. The majority of its business today consists of airfreight imports into the US from global suppliers.
Within the SEKO Logistics network of over 120 offices in 40 countries, there are now aerospace and aviation centres of excellence in Europe, the Americas and Asia Pacific, including its newest branch at Farnborough Airport in the UK, the home of UK aerospace.
