PACCAR Parts announced the opening of a new 250,000-sq-ft parts distribution center (PDC) in Las Vegas, Nevada. The facility, including a 20,000-sq-ft small parts mezzanine, opened in May, increasing parts availability and uptime to dealers and customers. This PDC serves 95 Kenworth, Peterbilt and TRP locations in the Southwest United States and Northwest Mexico.
“The new Las Vegas PDC features state-of-the-art technology that allows us to reduce the time between order placement and delivery,” says Jim Walenczak, PACCAR Parts assistant general manager, operations. “Ultimately, it is about getting our dealers the parts they need faster so we can maximize uptime for fleet customers.”
The latest addition to the PACCAR Parts distribution network has three times the capacity of the facility it replaces. It includes 18 PDCs with more than 3.1 million sq ft of warehouse space. PACCAR Parts also uses advanced technologies and innovation to increase operational efficiency. This includes stock-picking equipment with built-in weigh scales, voice-directed picking technology, and automated banding conveyance system to boost order fulfillment.
“The operations investment in the new Las Vegas facility will positively impact our dealers and customers,” says Tom Floyd, PACCAR Parts senior director, operations. “With a shipping accuracy of 99.98% and order fulfillment rate of 99%, the Las Vegas PDC will provide quality parts and service that is unmatched in the industry.”
Additionally, the PDC features warehouse air conditioning, a 300kW solar panel system, and reflective roofing to reduce building heat gain. A training center also allows PDC to host educational and informational meetings with dealers, fleet customers, suppliers, and PACCAR employees.
“PACCAR Parts is dedicated to providing industry-leading uptime and outstanding aftermarket parts and service to our customers,” says David Danforth, PACCAR Parts general manager and PACCAR vice president. “We are very proud of our exceptional employees and their contributions to the opening of this world-class facility.”
