Jan 27, 2016: SEKO Logistics has created a new Aerospace & Aviation industry vertical which is headed by Bryan Lowrie, managing director, headquartered in Dallas, the world’s second largest aerospace market.
SEKO has served leading manufacturing and production customers in the industry for a number of years. Now it is increasing its international focus to earn a bigger share of a market projected to be worth $352 billion by 2023.
“This is a market in which you only make your mark once you’ve earned the trust of the customers and that is what we have been doing over recent years. Customers don’t buy from you unless they know you because in the aerospace industry, trust in a logistics company is not an insignificant thing. If you have a production line building a plane, a ripple effect is caused if someone is late. Customers need the supply chain to be precise and they must be kept well informed,” Bryan Lowrie said.
SEKO currently works with the aerospace companies that build the airplanes and aviation companies that operate them all over the world. The majority of its business today consists of airfreight imports into the US from global suppliers.
SEKO’s solutions incorporate global aircraft manufacturing support, supplier management, government and defense services, and aviation logistics support for AOG shipments and parts for regular maintenance, repair and overhaul operations. “It’s no longer about saving pennies per kg, but guiding the customer in making better logistics decisions that avoid the problem of excess inventory or the deferment of VAT in the EU. Combining this proven capability with a competent and operationally sound global team of professional logisticians is what separates SEKO Aerospace & Aviation from our competition,” added Lowrie.
