Transport and logistics provider Gefco is managing the transport, warehousing and distribution of Fiat Chrysler Automobile's imported spare parts at its logistics distribution centre in Langfang, Heibei province, which opened in July last year.
The 11,500 sq.m facility now stocks a full range of Mopar spare parts and is feeding 105 dealers in the region.
“Ever since it was officially launched, Gefco Mopar North China spare parts LDC has played an increasingly positive role in optimising supply networks, facilitating smooth logistics flow, reducing transport cost, while setting a solid foundation to further expand our market share,” said Marco Amerio, FCA APAC Mopar – head of logistics. “We are delighted to work closely with Gefco and looking forward to providing better products and services to customers over time.”
Since the facility opened Gefco reports that dealers in North China have achieved almost 98% of the on-time delivery rate and 100% inventory accuracy. The Langfang LDC complements FCA’s existing warehouse in Shanghai.
FCA said it has witnessed a more than 20% increase in annual sales of imported SUV vehicles between 2012 and 2014, with its sales in North China accounting for 60% of the total.
