The $70m facility, which was built in six months, is managing the distribution of aftermarket parts for the company’s Mack and Volvo truck brands, as well as Volvo Construction Equipment and Volvo Penta, which supplies power systems for marine and industrial applications.
Volvo Trucks North America, which produces trucks and engines under the Volvo and Mack brands, is a division of Volvo Group.
“The Volvo Group is pleased to officially open its new central distribution centre in Byhalia,” said Christer Svärd, senior vice president of Volvo Group Logistics Services. “The new facility represents the hard work and dedication of our community leaders, employees of the new facility and the Volvo Group. The CDC will enable us to more efficiently handle an increased volume of parts distribution, while also significantly improving customer service.”
The move to the new central location consolidates activity that was previously carried out at warehouses near Dallas, Atlanta and Memphis.
