Best Practice in Aviation Logistics

ADOPTION OF BEST PRACTICE IN LOGISTICS EXECUTION IN AEROSPACE LOGISTICS

In October 2016, the Global Institute of Logistics announced that it would undertake a research study into the quality of logistics service providers in the global aviation sector.

The aviation and aerospace industry is one of the most demanding verticals for suppliers. Offering logistics support for maintenance, repair and operations (MRO) is one of the most complex challenges for logistics service providers and more particularly those servicing the emergency needs of this industry.

The research seeks to establish the level of adoption of best practice in logistics execution in the sector and draws for the most part on interviews with logistics and freight managers at the world's leading airlines.

The Institute will publish its preliminary findings from its research into logistics standards in the aerospace vertical in October this year.

One of the early recommendations arising from the preliminary findings based on feedback from logisticians working in the aviation industry is the formation of a benchmarking group. The group will share, learn and benchmark their respective experiences and strategies in the execution of their work. The key output from the group's work will be a guide to best practice in logistics execution supported by a glossary of definitions, KPI's and benchmarks.

It is proposed that the group meet 8 times over a 2-year period beginning in 2018.

The collective will become the 5th benchmarking group meeting on the GIL platform.

In the interest of expediency, the meetings will be co-located with major trade events and conferences.
