SEKO Logistics has opened its first UK Aerospace & Aviation ‘Centre of Excellence’ at Farnborough Airport to deliver logistics and technology services for companies serving global customers in the sector.

The company already has centres of excellence in Europe, the Americas and Asia Pacific and Farnborough was chosen as the location for its UK team of specialists because of its standing as the home of UK aerospace.

The SEKO team at Farnborough will help customers remove cost from their supply chains, provide total visibility of inventory and all transport and logistics movements, and identify opportunities for service level improvements. Customers will have access to the company’s Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions for asset and transport management.

SEKO Logistics director, Dean Townsend says: “This expansion is part of our commitment to customers in the Aerospace & Aviation sector and also reflects the strong growth forecast for the industry over the next 5-7 years.

“Aerospace & Aviation is one of our largest industry verticals and certainly one of the fastest-growing, and we know our combination of logistics and software services are perfectly attuned to the needs of customers in the sector.

“Our SaaS solutions are unique to SEKO and give our customers total visibility of their assets in the supply chain. All of the vital supply chain information is accessible online and is fast and easy-to-use, eliminating time-consuming paper processes.”

SEKO’s technology offering also includes integrated GPS devices within its MySEKO software that provides real-time 2D, 3D, road, aerial or ‘bird’s eye’ tracking of cargo.

SEKO Logistics’ Aerospace & Aviation services also provide full support for customs compliance and export licenses, including the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), in accordance with the latest international regulations.
