Boeing Global Integrated Services Support director John Guasto said: “Boeing’s supply chain management and distribution capabilities will help ensure parts are accessible whenever and wherever they are needed based on their use, while reducing inventory and logistics lifecycle costs.”

The company will also ensure that the ‘individually priced consumables’ are available at troop locations to meet their day-to-day requirements.

Work is expected to be completed over a period of five years with another five-year option.

The contract follows a three-year, $149.5m delivery order placed by DLA to supply consumable parts for the US Air Force’s KC-46 Pegasus tanker aircraft.

In July, Boeing signed direct commercial sale (DCS) agreement with Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) for the upgrade of Japan Air Self-Defense Force’s (JASDF) ageing fleet of Mitsubishi F-15J.

Under the DCS, up to 98 aircraft will receive the latest electronic warfare and weapons. Work under the programme is scheduled to commence in 2022.
