Australia Secures F-35 Regional Warehouse Assignment
Australia has been assigned regional warehousing capability for the F-35 Lightning II in the Pacific by the US Department of Defense.
Meanwhile, the European warehousing capability has been assigned to the Netherlands.
The warehouse and distribution centres will enable the program to optimise and manage aviation inventory, the F-35 Joint Program Office (JPO) stated.
The first capabilities in Australia will be stood up by October 2020 to provide regional inventory management.
These assignments were made based on data compiled and analysed by the JPO that was collected from partner nations, Foreign Military Sales (FMS) program customers and industry.
