Lufthansa Technik Logistik Services invests in warehouse expansion

Lufthansa Technik Logistik Services (LTLS), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Lufthansa Technik, has announced the expansion of existing warehouse capabilities to support the Airbus A350. The newly expanded warehouse at Munich is intended to offer a spare parts supply for the aircraft.

The existing LTLS warehouse is expected to be expanded by 3,200 sq m of floor space and optimized for the A350 support amongst other things.

Thomas Stüger said, “What simply looks like a hall actually is an important cornerstone in our approach to supporting the Airbus A350,” adding, “A highly modern and technologically advanced aircraft such as the A350 places high demands on us. Today proves that we are well on the way to offer a comprehensive and punctual support for the A350.”

An automated block storage system, AutoStore, is expected to be established at the first floor of the new warehouse. The expansion’s first stage is due to allow storage of 15,000 bins with room for a further expansion of 7,000 bins. The expanded facility is also expected to offer room for a further narrow-aisle rack, a pallet rack for wheels, a platform system with shelving racks for small parts and battery preservation as well as a cantilever racking system for oversized and long goods components.
