SEKO Logistics has named John Eastland as President of its Aerospace & Aviation industry vertical, based in Washington DC.



John was formerly Vice President, Domestic Product at Hellmann Worldwide Logistics, and earlier in his career held senior management positions at PGL, Estes Forwarding Worldwide and Allstates WorldCargo in the United States.

SEKO Logistics created a dedicated Aerospace & Aviation industry vertical at the start of 2016 to reflect its fast growth in the sector and stated its intention to create global centres of excellence and core competencies to deliver value-added services, technology solutions and to drive cost out of their supply chains.

The first of these new locations opened in Farnborough.

SEKO’s solutions incorporate global aircraft manufacturing support, supplier management, government and defense services, and aviation logistics support for AOG shipments and parts for regular maintenance, repair and overhaul operations.

John Eastland said: “In the aerospace and defence industries, technology and global compliance is now more important than even, especially with the changing trade environment. SEKO’s expertise in the sector developed over many years, alongside its technology, means we can offer customers solutions that are second-to-none.

“This is especially true in the critical area of supplier management. The supply chain for aircraft manufacturing continues to become more complex, and with the number of vendors seeming to increase each year, it is more crucial now than ever for companies to have systems in place to manage their suppliers. Our customizable technology can be implemented quickly and gives SEKO’s customers visibility to measure the performance of suppliers against their purchase orders, delivery schedules and production deadlines. It is solutions like this that will continue to drive our growth in the Aerospace & Aviation industry.”
