Kuehne + Nagel secures a three-year partnership with Singapore Airlines


Kuehne + Nagel has been awarded a three-year logistics contract for an A380 refurbishment project with Singapore Airlines for 14 of its A380 aircraft. Under the agreement, Kuehne + Nagel will provide the customer with end-to-end digital support and manage the material from pick up at suppliers via all modes of transport into a Singapore-certified aerospace logistics hub where the material gets goods received, quality inspected, kitted and handed over to hangar maintenance in time and sequence.

Erik Goedhart, Senior Vice President Aerospace at Kuehne + Nagel said, “Our KN InteriorChain solution will be the backbone for the A380 fleet refurbishments. We developed and launched it as an end-to-end digital logistics solution covering the entire lifecycle of aircraft interiors”

Through certified systems, processes and experts, KN InteriorChain allows organisations to concentrate on ensuring high standards of interior installation and refurbishment while Kuehne + Nagel focuses on delivery of parts on schedule, whether at a production line or MRO hangar. Over 300 aircraft have been refurbished and are back in operation according to planned schedules via the deployment of KN InteriorChain.
