Aerospace logistics provider, B&H Worldwide, has established a second Control Tower at its climate-controlled facility in Singapore, leveraging the city-state’s position as one of the fastest growing aerospace markets in the world.
The control tower’s strategic location within the ALPS Free Trade Zone at Changi Airport provides an innovative and integrated information hub that will enable team members to proactively monitor customer shipments 24/7/365 at the same time as providing updates and full visibility to them, the company says.
Recent business growth around the world has prompted the launch of the second 24/7 Control Tower to ensure B&H’s standards for operational excellence are maintained, it says.
Operationally effective from mid-January 2019 at the Changi Airport facility, it will utilise the newly designed, next generation, FirstTrac computer system to manage shipments. A successor to what it describes as the “unique, market-leading” OnTrack, both Time Critical and AOG consignments can be managed through the FirstTrac system.
“This new initiative is an exciting start to 2019 and will give customers operating across multiple time-zones even greater confidence in our services,” says Stuart Allen, B&H Worldwide Group CEO. “All our global solutions are under-pinned by cutting edge IT and state of the art facilities and the new Control Tower will enable our highly trained teams to maintain robust operating procedures,” he adds.
