B&H Worldwide opens second 24/7 control tower in Singapore to meet demand

B&H Worldwide has established a second control tower at its climate-controlled facility in Singapore.

The company said the control tower leverages Singapore’s position as one of the fastest growing aerospace markets in the world, with connectivity across the Far East and Oceania.

Tthrough its strategic location within the ALPS Free Trade Zone at Changi Airport it provides an innovative and integrated information hub that will enable team members to proactively monitor customer shipments 24/7/365 at the same time as providing updates and full visibility to them.

Recent business growth around the world has prompted the launch of the second 24/7 control tower to ensure B&H’s standards for operational excellence are maintained.

Operationally effective from mid-January 2019 at the Changi Airport facility, it will utilise the newly designed, next generation, FirstTrac computer system to manage shipments. A successor to OnTrack, both time critical and AOG consignments can be managed through FirstTrac.

B&H Worldwide group chief executive officer, Stuart Allen said: “This new initiative is an exciting start to 2019 and will give customers operating across multiple time-zones even greater confidence in our services.

“All our global solutions are under-pinned by cutting edge IT and state of the art facilities and the new Control Tower will enable our highly trained teams to maintain robust operating procedures.”
