Boeing enters AFSC logistics agreement

11th November 2013 - 04:28 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Boeing has entered into an agreement with the Air Force Sustainment Center (AFSC) that will see supply chain contracting streamlined and cost-efficiencies increased.

The overarching public-private partnership is the first of its kind to be signed, and will allow the three air force logistics complexes under the AFSC - Oklahoma City Air Logistics Complex, Ogden Air Logistics Complex and Warner Robins Air Logistics Complex - to immediately execute implementation agreements with Boeing, reducing administrative costs and increasing efficiency.

According to Boeing, the agreement will speed up supply chain contracting execution by as much as ten months.

In the past, each complex would enter into an individual partnering agreement with Boeing, a process that took 12 to 16 months to complete. The enterprise partnering agreement now in place allows the complexes to move directly to executing the details of the agreement, allowing implementation eight to 10 months earlier.

Scott Strode, vice president and general manager of maintenance, modifications and upgrades for Boeing Defense, Space & Security, said: ‘Boeing is proud to lead the way for industry by developing a new, more efficient and affordable way to do business.’

Ken Shaw, vice president of Supply Chain Management for Boeing Defense, Space & Security, added: ‘The new partnering agreement will make our supply chain more agile so we can deliver maximum mission readiness to our customers.’

The agreement covers products and services including software, commodities, new technology implementation and others.
