IJS Global has signed a Teaming Agreement with Daedalus Aviation Group, the Dutch headquartered, specialist one-stop-shop support provider for military aviation customers worldwide. Under the terms of the agreement IJS Global becomes global logistics provider for delivering fully integrated solutions to Daedalus' customers around the world.
D.A.G. has teaming agreements with a number of other partners across its business portfolio but this is the first time it is entered into one with a logistics service provider. IJS Global will be responsible for providing a wide range of services from supporting Daedalus' spare parts and component repair services through to assistance in the delivery of much larger projects and modification kits to customers.
D.A.G. currently operates from five key locations – Netherlands, USA, UAE, Chile and South Africa to enable it to service customers worldwide and provides a full spectrum of activities within the Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) business under one umbrella and through one focal point. The big advantage for the customer is that Daedalus can handle their business with just one point of contact to make sure that all processes are seamlessly integrated in order to create the most efficient and effective solution.
"We've known IJS Global for some time through working with them on the “One Logistics” project and through that close liaison we realized that they had a suite of administrative processes which could encompass all our requirements in respect of both Customs and ITARs* and that meant they were the ideal choice to become our worldwide logistics provider," says Marc van Lokven, Director of Marketing and Business Development at Daedalus Aviation Group.
Adds IJS Global Chief Commercial Officer, Rene de Koning: "Daedalus Aviation Group has recognized that our business proposition can help take them to a whole new level which will assist in attracting new business. Our aim is to deliver the ultimate specialist logistics support package for their military aviation business worldwide and we look forward to building a long and mutually beneficial relationship".
