Boeing to support Korea F-15Ks
Boeing has announced that it has received a Performance Based Logistics (PBL) contract from the Republic of Korea's Defense Acquisition Program Administration (DAPA) to ensure the long-term, affordable sustainment of the Republic of Korea Air Force (ROKAF) fleet of F-15K fighter jets.
According to the company, the five-year contract, valued at approximately US$300 million, also brings new opportunities to local industry, and Hyundai Glovis will provide in-country logistics handling and supply chain distribution activities. The announcement was made in a 23 February 2012 company statement.
Boeing will perform the work using its proven integrated logistics model, which combines supply chain forecasting; coordinated procurement of production and spare parts to benefit from economies of scale; rigorous supplier contracting, quality and risk-management practices; and more efficient delivery processes, as well as collaboration with customer maintenance depots and local industry.
