Operational Updates –
Coronavirus (COVID-19)

GENERAL INFORMATION

In times of uncertainty, there is a heightened need to be vigilant against fraudsters. Please note that our banking information has not recently changed. Should we ever change our banking details, we will contact you via multiple forms of communication to confirm any change.

PARCEL AND FREIGHT UPDATES

FedEx has just informed their customers that they will be implementing a temporary surcharge on all FedEx Express international parcel and freight shipments beginning April 6th. Below is a direct link to their surcharge details.

UPS will have a temporary peak surcharge that will apply to UPS Worldwide Express, UPS Worldwide Express Freight and UPS Expedited shipments originating from China Mainland and Hong Kong SAR to North America and Europe Regions from April 5, 2020 until further notice.

We will be abiding by both companies’ new rates.

COVID-19 PRODUCTS AND SOLUTIONS

RETURN TO SERVICE SUPPORT

With large parts of global fleets grounded, over the coming weeks and months, we expect to see more and more aircraft returning to service. This will create an increase in maintenance work. We’re here to support you with materials and supplies, as well as kits that can help to streamline this work and make your processes more efficient.

CABIN SANITATION & PPE SUPPLIES

As the general public begins to fly again, airlines face twin challenges: protecting the health of crew and passengers, and regaining the trust of passengers who are nervous to fly. Proponent is working to evaluate, acquire and distribute the best and most effective technologies to address these challenges.

CARGO CONVERSION ASSISTANCE

Many airlines are converting passenger planes into cargo transport due to current demand. At Proponent, we offer a range of options to support these conversions, as well as expert advice in maximizing ROI and limiting expenses during the process.

CASH FLOW MANAGEMENT OPTIONS

Airline revenue has dropped significantly since the crisis began, and airlines across the globe are facing cashflow challenges. We’re working with our suppliers and partners to find new options to get you the parts and supplies you need, while recognizing the importance of preserving cash flow.

  • Optimize your Purchasing and Inventory Decisions (burndown strategies, supply chain optimization, freight optimization, etc.)
  • Stock Consignment

SUPPLIER AND PRODUCT LINE DELAYS

While we expect some supplier production stoppages or reduced capacity, we continue to have sufficient inventory for our regularly stocked product and will be able to serve our customers. We will notify customers of impacts on orders when they occur and will maintain as accurate lead times as possible given the information we receive from our suppliers.
