Parts Distribution Centre in Sacramento will support growth
Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. (VWGoA) has announced plans to invest US$6.8 million to expand its logistics operations by opening a new Pacific Northwest Parts Distribution Centre in Sacramento, California, US.
The 13,285 m2 facility marks Volkswagen’s second parts distribution warehouse in California, and will be used for distributing automotive service parts for approximately 84 Audi and Volkswagen dealers in six states throughout the Pacific Northwest and Northern California.
The new facility will enable VWGoA to better service customer needs, in less time, improving stock orders from second-day to overnight delivery. The new warehouse will hold roughly 47,000 part numbers, and is expected to open in Q2, 2016, with a projected employee roster of 28.
The investment is part of Volkswagen Group’s more than US$7.0 billion commitment in the North American market between 2015 and 2019. VWGoA currently has a 28,000 m2 parts and distribution facility in Los Angeles.
