APOC has opened a new stock hub in Miami, US.
It forms the second part of the company’s ongoing strategic plan to expand its global footprint and follows the launch of a Singapore base last November.
APOC’s stock of A320 family and 737NG components will provide local markets with faster access to their growing spares inventory.
“The US is a key market for APOC and because domestic and international operators’ have emerged swiftly from the air traffic problems caused by Covid-19, we see demand increasing at a faster rate than other global sectors,” said vice president – operations Karim Grinate.
“We can offer the most desirable units and manage logistics with overnight truck deliveries. This avoids expensive airfreight, and possible complications at customs. Having the Miami base means APOC can offer a better service. Importantly however, Miami is the traditional gateway for the Caribbean, LATAM and South America, so we can reach those customers more effectively too.”
APOC said it would be “looking closely” at developments in Miami and strengthening its sales team. “Additional warehouses will be considered as part of our initiative in North America,” added Grinate. “But for now, our focus is on Miami. Our stock is ready to go in SV/RP/OH and MOD conditions.”
