Lufthansa Technik extends warehouse capacities in the USA

Lufthansa Technik has now opened a new warehouse in the USA, close to the Fort Lauderdale airport in Florida.

The Fort Lauderdale site serves as a connecting point for North, Central and South America. It was therefore chosen as the primary storage facility for the American market and central gateway for the extensive customer supply network in the region.

The new 2,000-square-meter warehouse has capacity for around 9,000 components. It also houses more than 10,000 items of consumables & expendables. Various models of aircraft can be supported from here.

The warehouse is operated by Lufthansa Technik Component Services (LTCS), making use of the logistic processes and IT systems of Lufthansa Technik Logistik Services (LTLS). The newly introduced LTLS computer-supported logistic order management system will make even more precise scheduling of internal logistic process steps possible.

“This will enable us to manage and efficiently process future customer orders in line with individual customer requirements, even during peak dispatch periods,” says Christoph Corbelin, LTLS Project Manager.
