Technical specifications for the A330 MRTT programme logistics operator warehousing service


This project consisted of the development of the technical specifications of the services that the logistics operator is required to provide from the ELC (External Logistics Centre), in order to correctly manage the disassembled parts from the Airbus A330 MRTT plant in Getafe.

Additionally, a study was produced to define packaging standards, detailing the different groups to be used when packaging the disassembled parts. This was also accompanied by an optimisation study of the warehouse at Santa Olalla (Toledo) where these elements are currently stored.
