How Airspace Continues to Overcome Historical Industry Challenges

Logistics is known for being an extremely antiquated industry: Aircraft parts are shipped to the wrong hangars; human organs for transplant are transported without tracking capabilities; medical devices worth thousands of dollars are being put on the wrong aircraft. The industry handles the most important shipments, and delays are costly and sometimes, deadly.

Airspace Technologies: We Are Growing & Loving It!

Airspace is incredibly excited to announce the completion of our new office space in Carlsbad, California. Airspace enlisted the unmatched services of Ware Malcomb, an award-winning international design firm, to create the perfect space that gives employees a brand new home in a creative office environment. Being a technology-enabled logistics service provider, Airspace is all about collaboration, so the open-concept space that Ware Malcomb created is perfect for our unique needs.

As Airspace continues to grow rapidly, a new office was necessary to continue to support our customers in the most impactful way possible. The finished 23,000 square foot interior gives our employees a productive space to support all of their work needs. With three distinct departments, Ware Malcomb designed a neighborhood layout that allows each team to work, collaborate, and focus. The centrally located reception, boardroom, and break area provide a hub for employees to circulate amongst departments, while also providing a welcoming environment for our visitors.

Customer Success AKA the Jack of All Trades

What is Customer Success?

Customer Success (CS) is exactly how it sounds. The goal of the CS team is to figure out the best possible ways to make Airspace's customers as successful as possible. A lot of individuals communicating with Airspace are not familiar with logistics as an industry, they are nurses, organ procurement coordinators, or aircraft technicians. The logistics procedures of their company aren't at the forefront of their minds. The CS team helps them get the most impact out of working with Airspace while exerting the minimum amount of effort.

Aircraft Parking: What Happens Next?

It comes as no surprise that the commercial airline industry has been hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic. So far in 2020, there have been more than 7.5 million flights canceled, more than $419 Billion in lost revenue for the world’s airlines and overall demand is down 54%.The recovery timeline for the industry is still unknown as many external factors play a role.

Why do aircraft get parked?

In an effort to reduce costs and meet the lower demand for passenger flying, airlines have been forced to park or store aircraft. Some airlines are eliminating larger aircraft from their fleet altogether. Qantas is a great example having recently retired their last 747 after having flown this aircraft type for almost a half-century, it was kind of a big deal for aircraft nerds like me. They have also decided to park its fleet of A380 aircraft until at least 2023, for some this tells a story of little confidence in the full recovery for international travel.

In an earlier post, I wrote about parking aircraft, long term storage, and its effects on the aircraft and airline operations. This following is a continuation of those thoughts.

Rebuilding Time-Critical Telecommunications in 20 Minutes

This past spring of 2020, we ripped out all of our phone infrastructure and rebuilt it from scratch. Little did we know that a month later, our entire company would be working remotely due to COVID-19. Had we not done that, the transition to remote work would have been virtually impossible. This transition turned out to be both well-timed and overdue because in rebuilding our telecommunications at Airspace, we completely redefined what we thought was possible.
