New business win for Kuehne + Nagel with Premium Aircraft Interiors Group

Premium Aircraft Interiors Group, a globally integrated group of companies that delivers support for the life-cycle of all cabin interior products and services, has selected Kuehne + Nagel as a global logistics partner.

Further to a review of its current business model, the aftermarket business of Premium Aircraft Interiors Group has decided to outsource its airfreight, roadfreight (both domestic and international) and sea­freight logistics operations to Kuehne + Nagel to meet the crucial cost-conscious demands of the market. Premium Aircraft Interiors Group will be utilising Kuehne + Nagel’s integrated range of logistics services specifically created for the aerospace and aviation industry to deliver a premium physical logistics model to its international customers.

With the aim of achieving greater control and visibility of its supply chain, Premium Aircraft Interiors Group will benefit from Kuehne + Nagel’s award-winning logistics information system KN Login. KN Login is a high-speed, web-based platform that delivers real-time supply chain visibility and reporting solutions. Kuehne + Nagel will also undertake process improvements and operations reviews for Premium Aircraft Interiors Group to create a more efficient supply chain.

Brent Collins, Head of Global Supply Chain Services of Premium Aircraft Interiors Group, commented: “There is a much needed shift to customer responsiveness by improving operational performance with no impact to cost. Kuehne + Nagel has delivered against this model. Customers are already seeing the benefits of streamlined reporting and improved physical logistics processes, which in turn will remove waste from the value chain and much needed cost in a struggling airline market.”

Chris Edwards, Director of Airfreight at Kuehne + Nagel North West Europe, comments: “Kuehne + Nagel is a leading logistics provider for the aerospace and aviation sector. Through our integrated logistics services, we can offer Premium Aircraft Interiors Group efficient tailor-made solutions to fulfil their bespoke and critical needs. Our partner­ship with Premium Aircraft Interiors Group also broadens Kuehne + Nagel’s aerospace service portfolio.”
