Bollore Logistics supports Airbus FHS with the opening of its Paris site

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has released data for global air freight markets in April showing that demand dropped 27.7% Y-o-Y.

At the end of 2021, Bolloré Logistics was selected by Airbus FHS (Flight Hour Services) to open a new space accommodating its Pool in Paris, a warehouse for spare parts for airlines. Bolloré Logistics helped Airbus FHS with the transfer of part of its stock from London to Paris. This site transfer, which took place over several months, meant Bolloré Logistics’ teams had to guarantee the continuity of service of Airbus FHS for its customer base, and airline companies.

The stock move was divided into two phases: the first from April to September 2022 while the second, initiated in January 2023, is expected to end this autumn. Bolloré Logistics’ offer on the Roissy platform provides Airbus FHS with a unit entirely dedicated to its components. The space is secure and complies with the latest standards. The Bolloré Logistics’ warehouse location, close to the runways at Charles De Gaulle Airport, presents a major advantage in ensuring the availability of components and their fast shipment.

The partnership between the two companies creates a more effective response to the logistics challenges their field of activity presents. Through its FHS branch, Airbus offers after-sales service for by-the-hour provision of aeronautics parts for its airline customers, while managing the repair flows of its components for the fastest possible return to service. Bolloré Logistics’ services on behalf of FHS at the Roissy Charles De Gaulle hub include receipt of parts, quality control, shipment to repair providers, and subsequent reintegration into its inventory for return to service with its customers. A real-time tracking tool, developed by Bolloré Logistics specifically for FHS, enables users to digitise and determine the status and location of a component at all times, manage the workload, and prioritise activities.

FHS now has 6 Pools internationally: the location of this new Pool in Paris supports a joint ambition to optimise flows and thus improve the company’s responsiveness and services to airlines, particularly European ones.
