OIA developed the perfect combination of standard operating procedures, technology support, and personnel to meet intense customer demand cycles and enhance productivity.

  • 100,000 square foot distribution center
  • Inventory management system
  • Documentation verification and support
  • Carrier management
  • Pick and pack from inventory

The customer achieved an annual savings of $3 million.

Customer benefits

OIA’s client needed to respond quickly to urgent customer demands for worldwide aircraft repairs. The company relied on OIA’s logistics teams to leverage existing tools and provide a complete inventory visibility solution down to the product code level. Before implementing this program, the client had purchased new tools rather than reusing existing ones. The new solution delivered annual savings of more than $3 million, and tool utilization also improved. Paperwork issues that had previously delayed shipments now ceased as OIA ensured that packing lists, invoices, and certificates of origin were available for quick customs clearances.
