DHL has officially opened a new logistics centre in Parañaque City in the Philippines, which will support automotive aftermarket parts distribution for international brand dealerships across the country including Toyota, Mitsubishi and Honda.
At 40,000m2 it is one of the company’s largest facilities in the region and has a capacity of 45,000m3 for stock, catering for the automotive and technology sectors.
“We are supporting spare parts logistics, handling thousands of separate items from the smallest nuts and bolts to engines and bumpers,” said company spokesperson Ozana Muresan. “We also provide value-added services such as engine stencil/stamping, engine processing (for the local Land Transportation Office)…and pre-packing of small, fast-moving items.”
The facility will also support scrapping activities, packing/crating and shrink wrapping, kitting of parts, key-cutting, retagging of old part numbers and processing of recall parts.
