Overall, it has more than 26,000 square metres of warehouse capacity available. Its customers include the Airbus Group and Alestis Aerospace.
In addition to warehousing, LTK handles supply chain management, procurement, returns and replacement part logistics, conducting quality checks as well as industrial handling and aircraft ground handling.
