Crane Worldwide Logistics and AerFin, a leading aftermarket supply and technical advisory organisation that provides end of life solutions to the aviation industry, have been working in partnership on a number of projects across the UK and internationally.
On one of the most recent ones, the AerFin team called upon Crane Worldwide Logistics Time Critical team to help with an aircraft on the ground (AOG) situation that required a critical replacement part. AerFin had less than 24 hours to find a replacement unit and get it to London City airport to avoid downtime and potentially expensive charges from their client. That’s when the Time Critical team came into action with a detailed plan to solve it.
“Crane understood our urgency for this delivery and they seamlessly made it happen. Their client service is unparalleled with any we have seen in the industry,” said Ben Pinington, Head of Operations at AerFin. “I would recommend Crane to our clients as they are true professionals and provide tailor-made, time sensitive solutions that can be relied upon.”
Located in Texas, the unit AerFin needed was transported by Crame to London immediately. The logistics company managed the entire transportation, from collection to customs to delivery, all while providing superior client service, being on time and keeping AerFin updated every step of the way.
“We are proud to partner with AerFin and provide the solution they needed in this circumstance. We understood that this critical shipment did not only have financial implications but also reputational implications for our client,” said Chris Lee, Managing Director UK at Crane Worldwide. “We look to provide stellar service every day for our clients whether in the US, UK or anywhere else in the world on time and on budget.”
