Streamlining services with a central shop
The Volvo Group is setting up a “mono” distribution shop in Johannesburg for all its South African logistics operations. As a result, all the parts warehousing, logistics and distribution services for Renault Trucks, Volvo Trucks, Volvo Bus and UD Trucks will be housed under one roof.
The Volvo Group SA states that its customers and dealers are set to benefit from a more streamlined and effective parts operation.
This new distribution centre will be established on the company’s existing site in Johannesburg, which will be expanded and upgraded from 4 500 m² to 11 500 m².
The consolidation project is set to start in October and is expected to be completed by the fourth quarter of 2014.
