Vodafone selects Ericsson for spare parts deal

11 Apr 2007

Vodafone has selected Ericsson to manage the supply and distribution of spare parts for its mobile networks across several of its major European operations including those in Germany, Spain and Portugal. Under the multi-million Euro deal, Ericsson will assume responsibility for the logistics, warehousing, repair and replacement of multi-vendor spare parts in the selected operating companies. This is expected to deliver greater cost efficiencies to Vodafone through lower average prices for the management process of spares, as well as enhanced service levels. The agreement will cover the end-to-end management of spare parts for 2G, 3G and transmission equipment.
