Pratt & Whitney expands partnership with UPS
Pratt & Whitney reported the expansion of its third-party logistics (3PL) relationship with UPS. As part of the agreement UPS will open a 600,000-ft² Northeast Logistics Center (NELC) in Londonderry, New Hampshire, to serve as a centralized distribution center for Pratt & Whitney parts, tooling and supplies. This logistics center will support Pratt & Whitney’s manufacturing and global engine assembly and test sites. Set to open in June 2015, UPS will operate the NELC and provide parts receipt, storage, building of manufacturing and assembly kits, packing, inventory management and freight transportation. Pratt & Whitney will leverage UPS’s customs brokerage expertise, and monitoring and technology solutions for 24/7 visibility across the supply chain.
