GUANGZHOU – Daimler Northeast Asia Parts Trading and Services Co. (DPTS), established in November 2008 responsible for aftersales parts logistics of Mercedes-Benz passenger cars, vans and trucks, opened an all-new parts distribution center in Guangzhou on March 18.
It is Daimler’s second built-to-suit parts distribution facility in the country and forms a close-knit network with the company’s five other regional warehouses in Beijing, Shanghai, Kunshan, Chengdu and Yangzhou.
With the addition of the 36,000 square-meter Guangzhou facility, DPTS has a total warehouse capacity of approximately 170,000 square meters, stocking more than 53,000 different parts.
Currently, DPTS is serving 325 Mercedes-Benz passenger car dealers, 52 Mercedes-Benz vans and 34 truck outlets in 196 cities across China, with a service level beyond 96 percent.
“DPTS plays an important role for our customer-first approach in China, by delivering our customers genuine parts in the right quantity, with the right quality and at the right time and place,” said Hubertus Troska, Member of the Board of Management at Daimler AG responsible for Greater China. “Going further, we will continue to enhance our parts and aftersales logistics infrastructure, being just more proof of our deep root in China’s automotive industry.”
“Our new built-to-suit warehouse will clearly strengthen DPTS’s nationwide network, while underlining both our strong momentum in recent years and confidence into our future in China,” said Steffen Holzer, CEO of DPTS.
