New Delhi,  January 15, 2024  - Boeing [NYSE: BA] announced the opening of the Boeing India Distribution Center in Khurja, Uttar Pradesh, The 36,000-square-foot parts warehouse will support regional aviation customers in maximizing fleet utilization. The new site underscores Boeing's continued commitment to expanding its presence in the country and delivering an efficient, cost-effective, and local solution.

“The Boeing India Distribution Center illustrates Boeing’s commitment to supporting the growth of this market, aligned with the Government's Aatmanirbhar Bharat vision. This center will support the emergent needs of spare parts for Boeing aircraft in India, reducing lead times, improving availability, and supporting the MRO industry here,” said Salil Gupte, president, Boeing India.

Boeing continues to enhance customer service by growing its global distribution network, including investing in, and developing regional distribution centers. The new India location is one of eight distribution centers around the world that holds and ships spare parts specifically for Boeing’s commercial customers.

Boeing announced its investment in the distribution center less than a year ago during Aero India 2023, and the first parts were shipped to customers in December 2023. Positioned strategically along India’s Eastern Freight Corridor, with proximity to both Delhi and the upcoming Jewar airport, the distribution center reaffirms Boeing’s commitment to supporting growth and self-reliance objectives in India. The warehouse, which prioritizes innovation, safety, and sustainability, is operated in collaboration with third-party logistics provider DB Schenker.

“We're excited to collaborate with Boeing on constructing an advanced aviation-focused facility in India. The complexities of warehousing and logistics, combined with Boeing's distinctive needs, provided us with a unique opportunity to build an innovative setup that meets the distinct spares support requirements of India's growing aviation industry. This initiative also underlines DB Schenker's enduring commitment to India, as we expand our local presence and tailor our services to meet the diverse needs of customers across various sectors,” said Kinjal Pande, chief executive officer at DB Schenker, Cluster India, and Indian Subcontinent.

The new distribution center marks Boeing's most recent development in India, following a series of substantial investments and agreements aimed at bolstering the growth of the civil aviation industry in the country. These initiatives encompass a partnership with GMR Aero Technic to establish a Boeing Converted Freighter line in Hyderabad and the establishment of a Global Support Center in Gurgaon. Additionally, Boeing has committed a $100 million investment in infrastructure and pilot training programs to support India's growing demand for pilots in the coming two decades.
