AAR to Help Manage DLA Aviation Spare Parts Supply Chain

AAR has received a potential five-year, $43.9 million indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract to supply aviation spare parts to the Defense Logistics Agency.

The company said Tuesday its OEM Aftermarket Solutions business will provide total supply chain management services intended to help DLA distribute, procure and manage its inventory of depot and field-level aviation spare parts.

“The contract allows AAR to use our expertise in inventory management and government requirements to provide the DLA with more predictable turnaround times for factory-new [original equipment manufacturer] parts,” said Eric Young, an AAR senior vice president.

AAR will also provide expertise to support DLA in efforts to maximize the military’s flight readiness.
