Embraer SA Selects DB Schenker to Manage Spare Parts Logistics in EMEA Region

Embraer SA has selected DB Schenker, a subsidiary of Deutsche Bahn AG, to manage its spare parts logistics in the Europe, Middle East, Africa, or EMEA, region, as part of a long-term six-year contract. Ideally located just a few kilometres from Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport, DB Schenker's logistics hub in Mitry Mory will manage tens of thousands of spare part items. The newly 6,000 square meter hub is located next to the existing DB Schenker site and will be dedicated specifically to the aeronautics industry. The scope of the contract includes the handling of standard spare parts, as well as sensitive and high-volume lines. High-density storage and elevated order picking systems will help DB Schenker deliver the productivity gains and increased flexibility sought by Embraer. Transparency and a continuous improvement plan were also part of Embraer's selection criteria. DB Schenker also handles the transport operations, including those for emergency situations, the so-called AOG (Aircraft On Ground) incidents, via its global network of 40 AOG desks and its teams of experts being operational 24/7. The service is designed to support future changes in volumes, aligned to the future development of the activity and Embraer's growing presence in the European market.
