Flexible, efficient and sustainable spare parts logistics is an important success factor for #daimler #truck and its customers around the world: Thanks to the fast and comprehensive supply of parts, vehicle fleets can be on the road as much time as possible and at standstill for as little time as necessary. Thanks to its independence, #daimler #truck is setting up its global supply of spare parts (aftersales logistics) for #mercedesbenztrucks in a new and even more customer-oriented way.
As the heart of the global supply of spare parts, a completely new logistics hub – the so-named Global Parts Center – is being built in Halberstadt, Saxony-Anhalt. In the future parts deliveries will be made from this central location, eliminating additional transport routes and cutting the time until parts are available. The facility is designed to meet the requirements of #daimler #truck customers. Regional dealers can be supplied directly or can pick up parts themselves if necessary.
Reiner Haseloff, Prime Minister of the State of Saxony-Anhalt, Sven Schulze, Minister of Economy, Tourism, Agriculture and Forestry, Daniel Szarata, Lord Mayor of Halberstadt, Jörg Howe, General Representative #daimler #truck AG, responsible for Global Communications & External Affairs, and Uwe Kazmeier, Head of Customer Services & Parts #mercedesbenztrucks, officially announced a recently signed contract for the central logistics hub in Halberstadt during a ceremony with other representatives of the federal state, the city of Halberstadt and #daimler #truck.
The new logistics hub will deliver up to 300,000 different items – from the smallest screw to a finished #truck cab – to almost 3,000 vehicle dealers in over 170 countries around the world. The Global Parts Center thus will make an important contribution to ensuring the international flow of goods. Thanks to state-of-the-art storage and conveyor technology, all vehicle parts will be available for immediate retrieval in an automated high-bay warehouse and an automated small parts warehouse. Construction is scheduled to begin in 2023, with commissioning scheduled to take place about three years later.
Karin Rådström, CEO #mercedesbenztrucks: “Halberstadt and the Global Parts Center will play a key role in the future: Spare parts from our new logistics hub will make a significant contribution to keeping our customers and their trucks up and running, thereby delivering on our ambition ‘Trucks you can trust’.”
Dr. Reiner Haseloff, Prime Minister of the State of Saxony-Anhalt: “Saxony-Anhalt is a sought-after location for company settlements. This is also underscored by #daimler Truck's commitment to Halberstadt. An excellently developed infrastructure, the central location in the heart of Europe and swiftly operating administrations are what set us apart. Investors are welcomed with open arms in Saxony-Anhalt. I wish the Global Parts Center, which will create numerous jobs in the region, a successful realization.”
