Consolidated Shipping to Improve Service for Duncan Aviation Customers

May 2013

Duncan Aviation’s company culture is one that encourages continual improvement and refinement. All areas of the company look for ways to do what they do even better and more efficiently.

While exploring shipping options for the company and our customers, Duncan Aviation’s Lincoln facility decided to consolidate its Shipping and Receiving operations to a new centralized location. Until now, packages were shipped to several different physical addresses at the Lincoln Airport, depending on which shop would be performing the work or needing the parts. Starting on June 3, all shipments to Duncan Aviation-Lincoln will now go to one location.

That means whether customers are shipping an accessory item for repair or overhaul, an avionics unit for repair or overhaul, or sending Duncan Aviation an inventory of parts for consignment, they will be able to use one address. Everything will go to the same receiving location. 

As part of consolidation, Duncan Aviation has obtained a special zip code for use in the FedEx shipping system. All packages addressed to this zip code will be delivered by FedEx to Duncan Aviation’s Lincoln facility first thing in the morning. That means customers with AOG needs will no longer need to mark and pay extra for the “EARLY AM” service from FedEx, as long as they use the special FedEx zip code of 68500.

The consolidated shipping, along with radio frequency scanning technology implemented in Duncan Aviation’s package receiving process, allows for more efficient shipment receiving and dissemination. Units can make their way from the receiving dock to the repair shop and ultimately the workbench even quicker than before.
