Cathay chooses DHL for Hong Kong operation

Cathay Pacific has chosen DHL Supply Chain to manage its aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul logistics activities at its home base at Hong Kong International Airport.

The ten-year contract will see the logistics company handle the storage, warehousing and domestic transportation of 80,000 specific aviation parts for the international airline.

“Operational efficiency and quality are imperative to Cathay Pacific. Aircraft maintenance and repairs require constant precision and care, which is supported by the efficient storage, handling and on-demand provisioning of vast numbers of spare parts,” said Neil Glenn, engineering, Cathay Pacific director. “As such, we are delighted to have engaged DHL Supply Chain as our logistics partner. DHL has an excellent reputation and is tasked to perform safe and efficient supply chain management and handling in extremely complex environments, which adheres to Cathay Pacific’s rigorous compliance requirements and operational standards.”

Yin Zou, CEO, DHL Supply Chain, Greater China:

“DHL Supply Chain has invested heavily in building up its capabilities to service the aviation industry’s exacting safety and compliance needs. With Hong Kong taking the lead, we are looking at extending this capability in the Greater China region, particularly mainland China and Taiwan. “This new contract is a significant addition to our aviation maintenance, repair, and overhaul capability and contracts for DHL Supply Chain and will only encourage us to deepen our commitment to airlines looking to streamline and strengthen the logistics processes that keep their fleets and returns aloft.”
