Supply chain services provider Unipart Logistics is continuing its winning streak with the award of a major multi-year contract with Airbus to provide in-plant logistics services.

The contract, which begins in early 2023, will see Unipart Logistics be responsible for the receipt of products brought in from around the world to Airbus’ onsite wing assembly lines in both Broughton in North Wales and Bristol in the southwest of England.

It will also entail responsibility for warehousing, kitting and line feed logistics.

Simon Wheelton, aerospace & defence sector director for Unipart Logistics, said: “We are very pleased to enter into a long-term partnership with Airbus, committing to supply chain transformation and driving best practices across these production logistics operations.
