Embraer and Trans States Airlines announce today at MRO Europe that they have signed a contract to implement the Embraer Collaborative Inventory Planning (ECIP) program, a supply chain solution for expendable parts. Under the agreement, Embraer will assume the planning and guaranteed replenishment of a portion of Trans States Airlines’ spare parts stock for its fleet of ERJ-145 aircraft.
ECIP is part of a suite of services offered by TechCare, the new Embraer platform that assembles the entire portfolio of products and solutions to deliver the best experience of services and support throughout the world.
“We are delighted to provide efficient services and support solutions to our long-time friends of over 20 years at Trans State Airlines with the ECIP program”, says Johann Bordais, President and CEO at Embraer Services & Support. “This platform will serve them well by reducing costs and streamlining processes.”
“The ECIP program is a natural fit for Trans States Airlines as it will optimize our inventory and increase the availability of spare parts for our fleet of ERJ-145 aircraft with, at the same time, the security of being able to count on the support of the OEM with a competitive value,” said Brian Randow, Trans States Airlines Chief Operating Officer.
Introduced in 2002, the ECIP program takes advantage of Embraer’s large expendables inventory, global purchasing power, and sophisticated software to accurately plan and stock contracted expendables at the best possible pricing.
