From aircraft seats to entertainment systems, it is a challenge to choose the right suppliers, consolidate and manage them. All the items have to be moved from a production facility to aircraft manufacturing site, which stands for a major logistical challenge. A rewarding process implies careful management of buyer-furnished equipment (BFE), which ensures aircraft safety and operational capability.
Kuehne + Nagel‘s global network and experience translate into superior qualification to consolidate a customer’s BFE and ship it according to the schedule. This prevents costly delays, and customers are motivated to achieve milestones on schedule and on budget.
Furthermore, our capabilities expand to assist you with the consolidation platform, lean line-feeding preparation. Our assembly line partners enable us to be present in the production process, thus allowing for greater flexibility to effectively respond to your needs. Meanwhile, manufacturers and airlines can focus on building the aircraft and rest assured their components will be shipped safely.
