After­mar­ket & Spare Parts

The aftermarket industry supports two types of clients: The first is OEM and Tier-1 suppliers; the second is the spare part or maintenance divisions across various industries such as oil and gas, rail, aviation, and telecommunications. Many companies in this industry consider it to be a strategic competitive factor, a source of profit or simply a cost of doing business.

Trends & Challenges

  • Redesigning networks and facilities with a focus on ideal stock allocation due to smaller, more frequent, or time-sensitive shipments.
  • Dramatic growth of e-commerce leads to higher service levels, e.g. same-day-delivery, and increased inventory levels.
  • Development of new and more complex service products and their pricing.
  • Adaptation of new IT landscapes, such as 3D printing and industry 4.0 in service supply chains, visibility processes, and systems.
  • Increased focus on reverse logistics, disposal and re-selling processes.
