Value Stream

At Aero Fastener, we are more than a distributor of aircraft parts. We’ve built our business by being a value-added partner for all of your supply-chain needs. These services, or “value streams”, are what sets us apart from the competition.

Due to the vast complexity of aircraft technology and parts, one of the greatest opportunities for increased efficiency and reduced costs in the aerospace industry lives in the realm of supply-chain optimization. At Aero Fastener, we have used our decades of industry experience to develop state-of-the-art, third-party logistics (3PL) solutions.

With 3PL services from Aero Fastener, we can handle your ordering, warehousing, distribution, receiving, and quality inspections, thus vastly reducing the required transactions—and related costs—to get your aircraft fasteners on the line where you need them, all across the globe, on time and on budget. Replenishment orders are automated to help ensure you never have an empty bin or order parts that you don’t need. With a pull-based inventory system, we can help you run on a leaner inventory, turn it faster, and prevent over or under stocking of parts.

Our team at Aero Fastener takes a consultative approach to the creation of your 3PL system. We know that every aircraft model is different, and requirements vary from warehouse to warehouse and hanger to hanger. Our team of experienced aircraft fastener supply chain managers will sit down with your team and evaluate your processes and procedures and help you find the most efficient solutions to your pain points. We help you identify places for improvement, but you control how you’d like our partnership to unfold.

Our advanced kitting solutions are also available within a 3PL partnership. Make your repeat jobs more efficient by packaging all of the pieces you need for a job in a complete and organized kit. Save time on the line by ensuring that your mechanics and engineers have everything they need at their fingertips at all times.

As part of our 3PL solutions, you also receive the benefit of robust reporting solutions, customized to your needs and timelines, including forecasting and identification of improvement opportunities month-over-month and year-over-year.
