Opening of new warehouse space in Munich
Supply of spare parts for Airbus A350
Lufthansa Technik Logistik Services (LTLS) has reached a significant milestone by extending the warehouse building for the supply of spare parts for Airbus A350 at the Munich site. The existing spare parts warehouse has been enlarged during the last months by an area of 3,200 square meters and is opened today. The extension was necessitated by the material supply for the Airbus A350, providing some 700 different components.
"An important element in ensuring the extensive support and supply of the Airbus A350 is now complete. Thanks to this development, our customers are guaranteed optimum material supply for this aircraft type also," says Dr. Christian Langer, Managing Director of LTLS.
In addition to the components for the new aircraft type, parts for 15 other aircraft types are also stored here. Following the commissioning of the extended warehouse, local storage areas at the airport can now be released promptly, as the new main warehouse will be home to the materials in future. The reduction in intra-company transports will lead to optimal material flows and transport routes as well as synergy effects through the centralization of the operative business.
The extension is fitted out with modern warehouse technology, such as the automatic storage rack system. This technology is an important prerequisite for developing additional digitally supported optimization potential.
