Gulfstream has opened a new aircraft parts distribution hub in Atlanta, within two miles of Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. The warehouse’s location will allow for parts to be delivered around the world quickly and efficiently.
“Atlanta is the optimal choice for our newest warehouse,” commented Derek Zimmerman, President, Gulfstream Customer Support. “Hartsfield-Jackson typically offers more than 150 domestic and 70 international nonstop flights and has been named the most efficient airport in the world. By distributing parts directly from Atlanta, we can save shipping and delivery time in order to provide the most expedient service to our customers.”
The warehouse maintains approximately $23 million in parts inventory. Crane Worldwide Logistics provides the warehouse space and handles logistics services.
Gulfstream’s global parts inventory totals more than $1.3 billion. Its parts network includes the main Customer Support Distribution Centre in Savannah with additional distribution centres in Van Nuys, California; Teterboro, New Jersey; as well as Amsterdam in the Netherlands; Basel in Switzerland; Hong Kong and Singapore.
