On January 31st, aircraft engine specialist Royal Aero GmbH, launched PartsOnline, an online shop for surplus aviation parts with pricing and trace records available for immediate viewing and download. Over 80% of 15,000 line items of inventory are priced. Orders in .pdf format can be uploaded immediately for processing and shipment. Parts which are on repair have an accurate lead-time shown, along with trace and certification. To remove all barriers to business and provide full transparency there is no requirement for registrations or passwords, making it easy to use. The real benefit will be seen by customers outside Europe who will be able to view parts, certificates and pricing in their own time zone and process orders immediately, enabling the shipments to be made when Europe awakes, saving valuable time.
