Independent aircraft component parts, repair, and supply chain solutions provider AJW Group has extended its power-by-the-hour (PBH) support contract with Brazilian cargo operator Modern Logistics.
AJW Group says the support contract providing full power-the-hour services for B737CL freighters has been in operation since 2017 and was the first PBH contract for AJW in Brazil. Since then AJW has become the supplier of choice for airlines across the South American region, reinforced by the recent signing of Chilean ultra-low-cost carrier, JetSMART Airlines SpA, with its rapidly expanding fleet of A320 ceo and neo aircraft, and the Caribbean’s first ultra-low-cost airline, Arajet S.A., and its growing fleet of LEAP powered B737 MAX aircraft.
According to AJW Group, the Modern Logistics contract extension highlights the PBH agreement’s outstanding value for money and excellent customer service. Erik Fernando de Souza, Purchasing Manager, Modern Logistics, commented: “We are delighted to extend our support contract with AJW. We originally chose AJW because of its breadth and technical expertise as well as high response levels via 24/7 AOG service. Also important is the fair market value for the parts that we lease. Modern Logistics is the pre-eminent cargo operator in Brazil, serving a key market where dangerous and special goods need to be transported by air due to infrastructure gaps.”
David Shorter, Head of PBH, AJW Group said: “We are pleased to extend our power-by-the-hour contract with Modern Logistics and are proud that AJW Technique, AJW Group’s flagship maintenance facility in Montreal, is the trusted provider of component repair services. In conjunction with strategic partners across our supply chain, the contract will continue to ensure an exceptional end-to-end customer experience for Modern Logistics.“
