The facility became operational in May and serves all dealerships across Brazil.

The new distribution center has six times the capacity of the facility it replaces and is the latest addition to the PACCAR Parts global distribution network, which includes 18 PDCs with more than 3.1 million sq. ft. of warehouse space. PACCAR Parts stock-picks equipment with built-in weigh scales, a fully wireless and barcoding supported warehouse management system and an automated conveyance system to boost order fulfillment.

The Ponta Grossa PDC features LED lights and skylights that use daylight harvesting technology and reflective white roofing material to reduce building heat gain, the company says. A training center will allow the PDC to host educational and informational meetings with dealers, fleet customers, suppliers and PACCAR employees.
