Daimler Truck is setting up a new central logistics hub for the global supply of spare parts for Mercedes-Benz Trucks in Halberstadt, Germany.

In the future, parts deliveries will be made from the Global Parts Center, eliminating additional transport routes and cutting the time until parts are available.

The facility is designed to meet the requirements of Daimler Truck customers. Regional dealers can be supplied directly or can pick up parts themselves if necessary.

The new logistics hub will deliver up to 300,000 different items – from the smallest screw to a finished truck cab – to almost 3000 vehicle dealers in over 170 countries around the world. The Global Parts Center thus will make an important contribution to ensuring the international flow of goods.

Thanks to state-of-the-art storage and conveyor technology, all vehicle parts will be available for immediate retrieval in an automated high-bay warehouse and an automated small parts warehouse.

Construction is scheduled to begin in 2023, with commissioning scheduled to take place about three years later.

“Halberstadt and the Global Parts Center will play a key role in the future,” said Karin Rådström, CEO Mercedes-Benz Truck.

“Spare parts from our new logistics hub will make a significant contribution to keeping our customers and their trucks up and running, thereby delivering on our ambition ‘Trucks you can trust’.”
