Eurocopter inaugurates new logistics platform

25th November 2011 - 13:12 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Eurocopter has inaugurated its new logistics platform at its industrial site in Marignane, according to a company statement, marking the end to its programme to re-engineer the group’s entire logistics chain and implement a flexible, high-performance tool.

According to Eurocopter, the investments made over the past two years to develop modern means will enable the company to reduce both logistics costs and delivery cycles, so that the company’s assembly lines, customers and industrial partners can receive their parts much faster.

The company said: ‘The programme was launched two years ago with an ambitious goal: to reorganise the entire logistics chain based on two dedicated platforms. The incoming flows and industrial logistics have now been centralized at the plant in Marignane, while the outgoing flows and spare part deliveries have all been grouped together at a brand-new platform located close by at the Florides industrial park.’

Eurocopter worked together with its partners to build a new infrastructure, Eurocopter Global Logistic, in the Florides industrial park near the Marignane plant. The new logistics centre is now fully operational and houses all the group’s logistics activities within a specially-designed unit offering 24/7 services. In parallel, the industrial logistics chain was also reorganised, and the Marignane plant now manages all incoming flows and industrial logistics activities. Two automated warehouses have been set up that together have the capacity to store a total of 180,000 parts.
