Gulfstream moves the European Customer Support Parts Distribution Center from the London area to near Amsterdam, in preparation for Brexit.
“In preparation for Brexit, we began moving parts from our London Heathrow-area distribution center into Amsterdam several months ago”, has announced Derek Zimmerman, president, Gulfstream Customer Support. The new European Customer Support Parts Distribution center is located in the Fokker Logistics Park, adjacent to Amsterdam Airport Schiphol. The warehouse space — provided by Crane Worldwide Logistics which handles logistics services — houses $20 million high-usage items and provides timely support to company-authorized maintenance facilities in the European Union. Gulfstream expects to have approximately $28 million in inventory in Amsterdam by the end of 2019. Derek Zimmerman adds “the Amsterdam location is fully operational. We made this move to ensure the continued speedy delivery of parts and materials to customers in the EU”.
He also comments “our customers traveling through or based in the United Kingdom will continue to receive support from our company-owned London-Luton Airport service center, which has a parts inventory of more than $45 million.”
