The increasing pressure on suppliers to deliver engine components predictably in time, at low cost, and guaranteed quality calls for new forms of internal & external logistics based on efficient & effective business operations. Furthermore, the question is to be raised whether and to what extent (buffer) stocks should be used to accommodate fluctuations in supply and demand or that external parties can
facilitate this flexibility better and cheaper.

The "Innovation in Internal & External Logistics" Round Table focuses on sharing experiences with just-in-time and parts consignment concepts on the one hand, and on answering the question what innovations within internal and external logistics are still needed / possible to further improve business performance in the overall value chain of engine maintenance on the other hand.


• Rob Droog (Kuehne + Nagel - Business Development Manager Aerospace) - Presentation "Innovation in External Logistics"
• Peter Rietdijk (AvioDiepen - Business Coordinator IT Business Systems) - Presentation "Parts logistics behind the scenes".
