Service Parts Logistics Capability Development
Service parts logistics is not the same as manufacturing logistics. Aftermarket involves a wider variety of different part numbers, sourced from a greater number of suppliers and distributed to a larger number of end customers. Each of these dimensions brings its own characteristics that help to make service parts logistics much more complex than manufacturing logistics.
Sourcing and supply of non-current service parts, minimum batch sizes, obsolete materials and components bring logistical challenges. Time-critical warehousing and distribution, often on a multi-echelon, worldwide basis within 24 hours utilising multiple modes of transport over air, land and sea brings challenges too.
