PACCAR Parts has announced the opening of a new parts distribution centre in Brisbane to increase parts availability for PACCAR Australian customers.

“This demonstrates our standing commitment of being a world-class leader in aftermarket parts distribution and international parts sales,” said David Danforth, PACCAR Parts general manager and PACCAR vice president, “Our excellent logistics capabilities and world-class distribution centers 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, in Melbourne’s eastern suburbs 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,” 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 location in Brisbane is a part of PACCAR Parts’ growing global parts distribution network, which now includes 18 PDCs worldwide.
