PACCAR Parts has opened a new 160,000-sq. ft. parts distribution center (PDC) in Toronto, Ontario. The facility officially opened on Oct. 22 and will increase parts availability and maximize uptime for PACCAR Parts customers across eastern Canada, the company says. It is the 18th PACCAR Parts PDC location.
The facility features technologies such as voice-activated picking, an automated banding conveyor, optimized pick paths and custom inventory zones that lead to improved quality, productivity and efficiency.
“The strategic location of the Toronto PDC equips us to increase our next-day deliveries,” said Laura Bloch, assistant general manager of operations. “We will increase customer uptime by adding a greater breadth of product and increasing our availability to service customers within 24 hours.”
