Mack Trucks, Inc. has significantly expanded its customer and dealer support with the addition of a new parts distribution center in Jacksonville, Florida. The new facility joins existing PDCs in Reno, Chicago, Dallas, Baltimore, Memphis and Toronto.
Approximately $2 million was invested in the 170,000-square foot Jacksonville facility, which stocks approximately 23,500 parts and is expected to fill more than 565,000 order lines annually.
"Enhancing the ability of our dealers to serve the needs of their customers is the driving force behind this expansion," said Kevin Flaherty, Mack senior vice president - sales. "Among the key benefits of this extensive new facility is the fact that it offers dealers throughout the entire state of Florida, as well as Georgia, South Carolina and parts of Alabama, the opportunity to utilize ground overnight shipments instead of air freight - which is significant both in terms of cost effectiveness and in ensuring that they have the right parts for their customers at the right time."
