Sterling, the leader in global aviation logistics, has launched a priority ground logistics service that provides a cost-effective and secure ground transportation solution to help get grounded aircraft back in the air quickly. This 24/7 service provides expedited, safe and affordable shipping options for valuable, delicate oversized or heavy weight aircraft parts, with pick up and delivery around-the-clock.
Traditionally, transporting valuable and delicate oversized parts meant using more expensive and less secure flatbed trucks, and shippers struggled to get an appropriate vehicle at a moment’s notice. Sterling’s Aviation transportation specialists can provide immediate solutions for aircraft parts such as flaps, slats, nose cowls, engines, engine inlets and other valuable oversized parts.
Sterling has a developed a network of over 8,000 trucks throughout North America that can pick up and deliver aircraft parts 24/7/365 for an AOG situation. End-to-end logistics provides direct drive of valuable assets with no consolidation, ensuring security and chain of custody. Valuable aircraft components are inside a covered truck from pick up through delivery to ensure asset protection. Real-time GPS Tracking provide status notifications, so these parts can be monitored every step of the way.
In addition, Sterling has also invested in and designed custom-built and aviation-focused team straight trucks for specific aviation requirements. These trucks have two curtain sides for easier and safer loading of extremely large, heavy parts. Each truck is equipped with AirRideControl™, a unique vibration monitoring system that ensures the AirRide functionality is working properly at all times. As a result, these aviation-focused trucks meet the Department of Defense and military specifications required for shipping critical components, which means parts are moved in the safest environment available for ground transportation today.
“Sterling is committed to supporting the aviation community and providing best-of-breed logistics solutions to minimize AOG situations. Our new AeroRide Ground Logistics service will provide the same high level of personalized service and attention to detail that our customers are accustomed to,” says Claus Engelbrechtsen, VP of Aviation Division.
