Volvo Construction Equipment (Volvo CE) has completed a 75,000-sq.-ft. expansion of its Reno, Nev., regional parts distribution center. The project, in conjunction with Volvo Group Service Market Logistics, increases floor space by 125% and brings parts closer to construction equipment customers with faster delivery times and reduced shipping costs.
Volvo Group has operated the Reno Distribution Center since 2006, supporting the Volvo Trucks and Mack Trucks brands.
With the expansion, ground orders for California and the Pacific Northwest are now arriving two days faster compared to shipping from the Volvo Group’s central distribution center in Byhalia, Miss. A new Dedicated Delivery Service (DDS) now operates out of Reno as an exclusive carrier to expedite overnight shipments to western U.S. dealers, arriving at dealer branches by as early as 4 a.m. the next day.
The regional distribution center offers additional benefits including:
- Inventory of critical machine down parts on the shelf in Reno for overnight shipping.
- Parts order cut-off time extended to 4 p.m. PST.
- Cost savings to customers, since more deliveries can ship ground versus air.
