Logistics and flow management includes a whole range of professions necessary for the organisation and control of the physical and document-based flows of goods and merchandise, for the purposes of supply or distribution. These professions are mainly found in Air France Industries and Air France Cargo.
Air France-KLM Cargo transports over 1.1 million tons of cargo to 350 destinations, using 6 all-cargo planes and the holds of passenger planes. It is also the largest global partnership of air cargo carriers, covering the main strategic commercial routes.
The logistics process starts from the moment merchandise is accepted (documentary and physical acceptance) until it is loaded on board planes or trucks, or alternatively from unloading to delivery.

As part of the general policy of the Air Maintenance Department and in compliance with the procedures specific to their job, warehouse logistics agents carry out operations related to the flow and storage of materials in warehouses.
In the context of a highly competitive environment and powerful commercial momentum, the Maintenance Equipment Department is responsible for supplying aeronautical parts for the maintenance of Air France aircraft and AFI KLM Engineering & Maintenance customers. Logistics managers may manage a team of 15 to 25 logistics technicians and senior technicians (depending on the product line assigned), the primary role of whom is to contribute to the smooth running of repair operations. They contribute to the economic performance of their product line while controlling the costs of purchasing goods and repairs.
In today’s evolving environment, and as part of the Industrial General Management, industrial logistics operations physically manage goods flows to provide a fast and efficient service to the customers of the Air Maintenance Department.
Given the importance of customer service, logistics project managers take care of production issues and implement the necessary adaptations to changes in flows with a view to ensuring the provision of materials with the expected quality of service. The financial stakes are high, as the activity can have a direct impact on turn-around times (TATs), generally estimated at €1 million per day of TAT delay.
In addition, with a view to continuous improvement, the Industrial General Management, and in particular Logistics, implements or contributes to large-scale projects in which the successful applicant will participate, including:
- The SAP Roadmap project to modernise our logistics management tools
- The Supply Chain project aimed at optimising the performance of our logistics processes through the use of appropriate tools and resources
