PACCAR Parts celebrated the grand opening of its 260,000-square-foot parts distribution center (PDC) in Louisville, Ky., recently. The new facility increases parts availability for dealers and customers in the central, mid-Atlantic and southeastern regions of the U.S.
The grand opening featured a ribbon-cutting ceremony and presentations by Kentucky Governor, Andy Beshear, Benjamin Moore, director of the Department of Economic Development at Louisville Forward, and PACCAR leadership. PACCAR dealers, customers, vendors and suppliers toured the facility and learned about the state-of-the-art technology used to manage inventory and efficiently distribute parts. An interactive 3-D model of the new distribution center gave attendees an exclusive look at how PACCAR Parts uses PDC technology across its global distribution network.
“Our PDCs utilize leading technologies to expedite the order fulfillment delivery process, maximizing time on the road for our customers,” said Tom Floyd, PACCAR Parts senior director – operations.
The new distribution center officially opened its doors in Louisville on September 9, 2022 and serves 97 dealerships throughout the region. The Louisville facility is the latest addition to PACCAR Parts’ global distribution network which includes 18 PDCs with more than 3.4 million square feet of warehouse space.
“PACCAR Parts is committed to keeping customers on the road with exceptional service, maximum product availability and excellent value,” said Laura Bloch, PACCAR Parts general manager and PACCAR vice president. “The grand opening of the Louisville PDC underscores this commitment, and we are excited to partner with our dealerships and customers in the region.”
