Aviall has signed a supply chain agreement with CHC. Boeing, Aviall’s parent company, said CHC officially signed up during Heli-Expo in Las Vegas to receive vendor managed inventory services.
Vendor managed inventory should improve efficiency and streamline supply chain costs for CHC, Boeing said. The workflow tools included would provide CHC with integration into Aviall’s planning, forecasting and delivery model with real-time information for parts availability and distribution to CHC’s regional base locations in Australia, Brazil, Europe and North America.
“At CHC, our goal is to provide unmatched helicopter services that enable customers to work in remote and challenging destinations,” said David Balevic, SVP of engineering and operations at CHC. “By partnering with Boeing, CHC is able to better serve our customers throughout the world, while optimizing our supply chain through the Aviall global branch network.”
