How We Can Help

Global Transportation

Today, lightning speed and buttoned-up service are the price of entry in aerospace logistics. Our global transportation services get your shipments delivered pronto. But you also get the speed and precision of a single-source provider that can consolidate handoffs, manage customs issues and coordinate seamless transitions from warehouse to final delivery.

Aircraft Parts Shipping

Whether you're moving raw materials, components or sub-assemblies, we support inbound, in-plant and outbound movements to and from the manufacturing plant and end customers worldwide.

Spares Distribution

We know nothing is more important than speed and reliability when it comes to maintaining planes in service. When an aircraft isn’t flying (AOG), it's lost revenue. We also know a well-tuned global spare parts network is crucial to your success and that of your operators.

Aviation Quality Control

From production and assembly to maintenance, repair and overhaul, optimal performance and accuracy must be ensured. Our trained, certified quality inspectors monitor and track the accuracy and integrity of inbound and outbound parts. Using blueprints, they ensure inbound parts are consistent with engineering designs. And they visually inspect and capture serial numbers for outbound shipments.

Customs Services

Not only are we one of the world’s largest customs brokers, we're certified to the AS9100 and AS9120 aerospace standards for quality. We stay on top of customs-related requirements and tariffs to help navigate your shipments to their final destinations.
