Kuehne + Nagel has extended its global external logistics services contract with SAS Scandinavian Airlines. The pair have worked together since 2006 and the extension will take the partnership up to 2020.
Under the agreement, Kuehne + Nagel operates at several strategic airside locations globally and is responsible for international transport of spare parts for the SAS airplane fleet. A 24/7/365 service ensures timely delivery of spare parts, ranging from aircraft engines to bolts of cockpit windows.
Gustav Johansson, Strategic Relationship Manager of SAS, said: “Our partnership with Kuehne + Nagel ensures a smooth and innovative supply chain, which is extremely important for airlines. Within the aerospace industry, delays or errors can cause very high costs, and the reliability and professionalism of our logistics provider is key to our success.”
Jens Davidsen, Airfreight Director of Kuehne + Nagel Denmark added: “The complex demands of our partner SAS require tailor-made door-to-door solutions. We are very pleased that SAS has extended the partnership with Kuehne + Nagel which started in 2006 for another three years.”
