Boeing awards Schenker a ten year contract extension

Aircraft manufacturer Boeing has signed a ten year contract extension with DB Schenker to manage its 3PL parts distribution centre at London Heathrow. 

The contract involves managing the distribution of parts for all Boeing aircraft types and sizes from B717 through to B747 and soon will include the B787. Schenker supplies parts all around the world from its London DC.

Schenker has worked on international parts distribution for Boeing for more than 20 years.  It has operated the London DC for Boeing since it opened. 

A dedicated team manages the Boeing parts facility under national logistics manager, Gareth Thomas.

Boeing’s senior manager SDC operations, Wade Eldredge, said: “These are exciting times to be working together with DB Schenker as the latest Boeing airframes are soon to be introduced and London will once again be at the heart of parts distribution for these new types”.
