Bolloré Logistics Supports Airbus FHS with the Opening  of its Paris Site 

[shareaholic app="share_buttons" id="13106399"]

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 continuity of service of Airbus  FHS for its customer base, 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 location of the Bolloré Logistics’ warehouse, 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 presented by their field of activity. 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 our responsiveness and services to airlines, and European ones in  particular. 

To ensure the success of this project, Bolloré Logistics set up a team dedicated to its customer. All the  staff recruited, both internally and externally, undertook several weeks of training to meet the specific  needs of Airbus FHS.
