Daimler Truck has opened a new truck-dedicated parts warehouse in the logistics hub of Truganina in Melbourne’s west to serve its customers across Australia and New Zealand.

Situated on a 30,000m2 site, the facility will handle parts for the Mercedes-Benz Trucks, Freightliner and Fuso brands, as well as Alliance Truck Parts.

Until now, Daimler Truck parts were kept at a warehouse shared with Mercedes-Benz passenger cars.

The new 20,000m2 facility features a solar array able to produce 125,000kW/h of energy each year, as well as a 45,000-litre rainwater tank, motion sensing energy efficient LED lights, double glazed windows and electric vehicle charging stations.

Daimler Truck Australia president and CEO, Daniel Whitehead, said the introduction of the new warehouse represents a big step forward.

“This dedicated truck and bus parts warehouse is at the centre of our commitment to our truck and bus customers across Australia and New Zealand,” he said.

“It will allow us to better meet their specific needs, which are very different to those of passenger car customers.”

Whitehead said the warehouse development fits in with the sustainability goals of Daimler Trucks.

“Daimler Truck is a sustainability leader with our pioneering fully-electric Fuso eCanter and Mercedes-Benz eActros and eEconic trucks, so it is only fitting that our parts warehouse is designed accordingly.”
