Magnetic MRO and Kuehne+Nagel launch 1st joint aerospace hub
After Magnetic MRO and Kuehne+Nagel announced their cooperation agreement in October 2016 to offer global engine stand management solutions via Magnetic MRO‘s EngineStands24 project, they signed a working agreement in summer 2017 to dispatch engine stands in strategic KN EngineChain hubs. KN EngineChain is an innovative end-to-end integrated supply chain solution for the aerospace industry that takes care of valuable engines with complete reliability. On this basis, Amsterdam had been selected as the first station, which has been physically up and running, in order to provide transportation and storage of aerospace engine stands all around the world. After the work agreement, EngineStands24 has officially launched the project and leased out its first engine stands from the 1st joint aerospace hub. Amsterdam station today facilitates Magnetic MRO-branded CFM56-3, CFM56-5A/B, CFM56-5C, CFM56-7B, V2500 stands, and is getting ready to expand the variety in the near future by accommodating also CF6-80, CF34-8, CF34-10, PW, Trent and LEAP engines.
