The 36,000-sq ft India Distribution Centre, being operated in collaboration with third-party logistics provider DB Schenker, will support regional aviation customers in maintaining higher fleet utilisation, the company said in a statement.

The new India location is one of eight distribution centres around the world that holds and ships spare parts specifically for Boeing's commercial customers, it said

"This centre will support the emergent needs of spare parts for Boeing aircraft in India, reducing lead times, improving availability, and supporting the MRO industry here," Boeing India President Salil Gupte said.

The aircraft maker said it continues to enhance customer service by growing its global distribution network, including investing in, and developing regional distribution centres.

"The India Distribution Centre represents another significant step forward in Boeing's strategy to provide parts and services when and where customers need them," William Ampofo, vice president for parts and distribution services and supply chain, Boeing Global Services, said.

It also represents Boeing's commitment to delivering cost-effective solutions for the company's commercial airplane customers in the region, he added.
