PACCAR Parts expands its operations

Commercial vehicle parts distributor, PACCAR Parts, has opened a new parts distribution centre (PDC) in Brisbane, increasing the availability of its truck and trailer components.

“This demonstrates our standing commitment of being a world-class leader in aftermarket parts distribution and international parts sales,” said PACCAR Parts General Manager and Vice President David Danforth. “Our excellent logistics capabilities and world-class distribution centres drive customer uptime by providing them with the highest product availability, exceptional service and unmatched value in the industry.”

The new PDC in Brisbane expands the Australia distribution network to two locations. Along with the Bayswater PDC, east of Melbourne, the addition of the Brisbane PDC will support increased dealer service levels across Australia.

“The strategic location of the Brisbane PDC supports 25 per cent of parts sales in Australia and equips us to increase our next-day deliveries,” Paccar Parts Australia General Manager, Chris Scheel. “We will increase customer uptime by adding a greater breadth of product and increasing our availability to service customers within 24 hours.”

PACCAR Parts also recently opened a PDC in Panama City to elevate service levels across the Latin America markets.

The new locations in Brisbane and Panama City are a part of PACCAR Parts’ growing global parts distribution network, which now includes 18 PDCs worldwide.
