The Defence Logistics Centre on Samlesbury Enterprise Zone has been operating since 1st January 2017.
All aircraft component deliveries (with the exception of the Saudi Tornado contract which goes to Wincanton at Walker Park, Blackburn), should be made to:

Wincanton - Defence Logistics Centre
1 Petter Court
Samlesbury Enterprise Zone
Mellor Brook, Blackburn

Goods In for vehicle receipt operates between the hours of 7.30am until 4.30pm Monday to Friday. There are no standard weekend deliveries.

What does the Supplier need to do?

  • Ensure all goods dispatched against different Purchase Orders are packed in separate bags/boxes as they will be processed individually.
  • Ensure that any special handling instructions are clearly marked on the outside of the package, e.g. “Hazardous”, “Cadmium content”.
  • Ensure all paperwork has been checked for accuracy and topicality in line with quality approval conditions and compliance to Export Control regulations.

Whilst the DLC is still receiving deliveries as normal during this time, for further support and information please contact your usual BAE Systems Procurement point of contact.
