Duncan Aviation’s parts consignment program expanded drastically in 2012. The sales team sold nearly $1.07 million in consignment parts and rotables to Fixed-Base Operators (FBO) as well as flight departments and increased the total number of consigners by nearly 30 percent.
The consignment program offers unique solutions for operators looking to sell excess new parts or reduce their surplus parts inventories, and it’s all in-house. When customers ship parts, they are physically sorted at Duncan Aviation, listed via numerous parts listing services and stored in the company’s warehouse until they’re sold.
During that process, the consigner retains title of their inventory. Duncan Aviation also protects the consignor in case the purchaser defaults on payment and maintains insurance against casualty and subsequent loss, creating a low risk, yet profitable climate.
“Instead of an operator storing, cataloging, advertising, selling, invoicing, collecting payment, packaging and shipping parts themselves, our consignment experts helps them convert surplus parts into cash and free up storage space,” says Susan Masek, Parts Expert at Duncan Aviation’s Lincoln, Neb., location.
The program is mutually beneficial to Duncan Aviation because, simply put, having a part on-site means a better opportunity for a sale. This means both the consigner and buyer benefit from quicker sales and better support. Physical access allows for overnight delivery services, which are heavily used by customers across the globe.
