The new facility is just 10 minutes' drive from Tullamarine airport and is ideally positioned for handling the growing number of AOG (aircraft-on-ground) shipments the company is now carrying. Additional warehouse staff have been employed to provide round-the-clock coverage within the facility. All staff will report to B&H's Head of Operations, Oceania – Colin Kaltner - who is also based at the site.Describing the expansion Kaltner says, "There are multiple benefits for our customers from this expansion in Melbourne. And as our primary forward stocking location for Australia and the South Pacific we are now able to cater to all their expansion requirements. They will have global visibility of their inventory through our unique, cloud-based track and trace platform FirstTrac and with our increased capacity we can provide a full range of specialist aerospace logistics services."
