Modern Logistics signs comprehensive diagnostics services agreement with CFM
Modern Logistics S.A., Brazil’s first logistics company to integrate air operations within its supply chain, has signed a comprehensive diagnostics services agreement with CFM International for the CFM56-3 engines powering its Boeing 737-400 freighter aircraft. Modern Logistics will begin operations with 737-400 special freighter airplanes later this year as it launches the air solution portion of its integrated distribution platform. As part of its supply-chain, the company will roll-out a network of logistics centers that will focus on supplying Brazilian businesses with a “one-stop-shop” distribution solution. Launch is scheduled for the second half of 2014. Under the terms of the agreement, CFM will provide 24/7 comprehensive engine data monitoring, engine exceedances, fault troubleshooting, and provide engine trend reports to assist with its regulatory reporting.
