Improving parts delivery performance and efficiency for dealers
Volvo has formally opened its new 92,900 m2 Central Distribution Centre (CDC) in Byhalia, Mississippi, US. The US$70.0 million state-of-the-art facility supports the Company’s Mack and Volvo truck brands, as well as Volvo Construction Equipment and Volvo Penta.
Located 25 miles southeast of Memphis, Tennessee, the new CDC represents another major investment in North America by the Volvo Group and employs 250 people. Handling an increased volume of parts distribution, the facility is based near major transportation hubs and infrastructure, thus improving delivery performance and efficiency for dealers and customers.
The CDC was designed to showcase the industry’s best logistics technologies and lean processes within a sustainable and environmentally conscious shell. The orientation of the facility was set to maximise natural daylight throughout the day and reduce energy consumption.
Energy usage is kept minimal through the use of innovative building materials, state-of-the-art LED lighting and a comprehensive building automation system. Built in just over six months, the facility is now fully operational.
