The Defense Logistics Agency Aviation has received five vertical lift modules to help the agency optimize storage and access of aircraft components. The automated modules were installed at Warner Robins Air Force Base's F-15 and C-5 Ship-to-Shore Connector facilities and is expected to increase the base's storage capacity by 110 percent, DLA said Friday.
“By having more material readily stored in our Shop Service Centers, we’re able to more accurately and efficiently issue parts to our maintenance customers,” said Maj. Joshua Wilkerson-Bienick, operations officer for DLA Aviation at Warner Robins AFB.
In addition, the modules allowed DLA to lower storage space to 7K feet and reinforce delivery times for customers. DLA noted that it intends to install VLMs at other facilities within Robins AFB.
