Scania to invest in more efficient parts distribution

Thu, 23 Feb 2012 10:41:34 EST

Scania has decided to boost its parts distribution capacity. The central warehouse in Europe will be extended and an entirely new parts warehouse will be constructed in South America. A total of SEK 400 million will be invested in these facilities, which will go into service during the first quarter of 2013.

'This investment is being made so that we can continue to ensure high availability of parts for the growing number of Scania vehicles on the road. Good parts availability at service workshops is of great importance for our customers' profitability,' says Jan Andries Oldenkamp, Head of Scania Parts Logistics.

Scania's central warehouse in Opglabbeek, Belgium, was inaugurated in 1993 and since 2007 has served as the parts distribution hub for the company's 1,000 or so European dealerships and to the regional warehouses that supply Scania dealerships in the rest of the world. The existing facility will be supplemented with a new 36,500 square metre building.

InSouth America, Scania's parts supply occurs via a facility located near the company's production unit inSão Paulo. This operation will be moved to themunicipalityofVinhedoin theCampinasregion, which has developed into a logistics centre for road and air transport services. The new 16,000 square metre building will represent a 60 percent increase in capacity.

Concurrently with the expansion of capacity inEuropeandSouth America, Scania is investing in strengthening its regional parts distribution in the rest of the world. In late 2011, for example, Scania established a regional warehouse in Singapore.

Scania is one of the world's leading manufacturers of trucks and buses for heavy transport applications, and of industrial and marine engines. Service-related products account for a growing proportion of the company's operations, assuring Scania customers of cost-effective transport solutions and maximum uptime. Scania also offers financial services. Employing some 37,500 people, the company operates in about 100 countries. Research and development activities are concentrated in Sweden, while production takes place in Europe and South America, with facilities for global interchange of both components and complete vehicles. In 2011, net sales totalled SEK 87.7 billion and net income amounted to SEK 9.4 billion. Scania press releases are available on www.scania.com
