HONG KONG: DHL Supply Chain has begun managing all of Cathay Pacific Airways' and Cathay Dragon's aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul logistics activities at their Hong Kong International Airport home base, under a 10-year contract signed earlier this year.
The agreement calls for DHL Supply Chain to manage the storage, warehousing and domestic transportation within Hong Kong of all aircraft parts for Cathay Pacific and Cathay Dragon's aircraft maintenance operations at HKIA.
This means DHL Supply Chain will take overall responsibility for supply logistics for 80,000 specific aviation part numbers, components and equipment required to maintain Cathay Pacific's and Cathay Dragon's combined fleet of 180 aircraft.
DHL Supply Chain will also work with Hong Kong-based aircraft maintenance provider HAECO – which, like Cathay Pacific Airways, is majority-owned by the Swire Group – to provide additional services, including parts inspection and airside operations.
