September 9, 2021 - thyssenkrupp Aerospace has signed a 15-year contract with Rolls-Royce to manage the storage and logistics of all finished parts for its engine manufacturing and assembly operations in Indianapolis. The third-party logistics (3PL) contract includes inventory management, as well as kitting, inspection, and transportation services. thyssenkrupp Aerospace already provides vendor-managed inventory services for a portion of Rolls- Royce’s supply chain. This expanded contract will be in full operation in 2022 when a new 330,000 square-foot facility is completed in the Indianapolis area.
