PACCAR Parts has announced the opening of two new parts distribution centers (PDCs) in Brisbane, Australia, and Panama City, Panama. According to the company, these facilities will increase parts availability, maximize uptime, and provide superior service to PACCAR customers in the respective markets. The new PDC in Brisbane expands the Australia distribution network to two locations. Along with the Bayswater PDC, located 22 miles east of Melbourne, the addition of the Brisbane PDC (seen above) will support increased dealer service levels across Australia.
“The strategic location of the Brisbane PDC supports 25 percent of parts sales in Australia and equips us to increase our next-day deliveries,” said Chris Scheel, general manager of PACCAR Parts Australia, “We will increase customer uptime by adding a greater breadth of product and increasing our availability to service customers within 24 hours.”
The new Panama City PDC will elevate service levels across the Latin America markets, the company says.
