The aerospace industry is more complex than standard point-to-point logistics. With industry specific knowledge and customer-focused support, DSV Air & Sea Inc. helped one of its customers streamline its supply chain in order to provide clear cut visibly to its processes.
DSV was approached by one of its longtime customers with the task of coordinating the transport of engines designated for repairs. This project required a customer-focused forwarder that could provide a unique service tailored to specific needs.
Prior to DSV coming onboard, each individual airline selected freight forwarding services. This left the customer with little control over cost, and no visibility into status of freight movements. Delivery delays could lead to lost slots, increased engine repair times, and extra spend in leasing or replacement engines.
DSV was able to tailor a solution to its customer that provides cost savings, efficient and transparent shipment status, and peace of mind through specialized support.
