Contour teams with JSSI P&L for parts procurement
Dedicated JSSI Parts & Leasing parts procurement staff will support all part requests for Contour's business jets, from the initial request through to ensuring on-time delivery, helping the operator's bottom line.

Tennessee-headquartered Contour Aviation has signed a supply chain agreement with JSSI Parts & Leasing, which will provide parts procurement, logistics and billing support to Contour Aviation's fleet of business jets.

“The JSSI Parts & Leasing team has helped us effectively manage not only parts procurement and logistics but also vendor agreements to streamline tasks, such as timely core exchanges, that ultimately impact our bottom line,” states Contour Aviation Maintenance executive VP Bob McConnell. “With the range of business aircraft that we operate, efficient parts management across our expanding fleet will allow us to deliver an even greater level of service to our clients.”

JSSI Parts & Leasing president Jim Sellers adds: “We look forward to working closely with Contour Aviation to streamline the procurement and management of parts across its fleet. “Each year, we support more than 8,000 maintenance events for clients across virtually every make and model of aircraft. With over 30 years of expertise to draw on, and the global buying power of JSSI behind us, we are uniquely positioned to support the Contour fleet and bring significant time and cost savings to its business.”

Under the agreement, the dedicated JSSI Parts & Leasing parts procurement staff will support all part requests for Contour's business jets, from the initial request through to ensuring on-time delivery. The team receives itemised orders and provides logistics support and tracking services throughout the order process, including daily parts update reports, shipment updates and core return support. It will also evaluate invoices and purchase orders and coordinate with vendors regarding delayed core billings. Sophisticated consumption analysis and forecasts will be utilised to assist with advanced planning and accurate cost projections, with periodic programme and cost performance reviews.

Contour Aviation operates a diverse fleet of business jets available for private charter. The company also offers fuel and aircraft handling services at three FBO locations as well as retail aircraft maintenance and avionics at a facility adjacent to its headquarters in Smyrna, Tennessee.
