LIFT Helps Helicopter Customers Hover Higher
Aviall's LIFT (Logistics Inventory Flight Team) program offers a variety of services tailor-made to each helicopter operation, all designed to add value and cost reductions to a customer's bottom line. The program's benefits include access to more than 220 product lines, local stocking, central inventory, inventory management, electronic ordering via the award-winning aviall.com website or EDI (electronic data interface), and the support of local Aviall sales personnel.
The LIFT program was created exclusively to serve the helicopter market. To support LIFT, Aviall recently expanded its general helicopter inventory to more than $70 million. Today, LIFT serves customers such as Keystone Helicopter, Air Methods, Rotorcraft Leasing, Eagle Copters, and Arrow Aviation. They use LIFT to acquire more than 2,000 items that are purchased solely from Aviall.
To provide the best in LIFT service, Aviall looks at each customer's unique needs and develops a plan that works for that customer. By managing and combining many supply chain, administrative and inventory management services for a customer, Aviall performs important functions that would normally cost customers time and money.
