Doosan transfers Parts Distribution Centre from Belgium to Germany
Doosan Industrial Vehicle (DIV), a leading supplier of quality material handling equipment, has announced the successful transfer of its Parts Distribution Centre (PDC) from Sint-Niklaas, Belgium to Halle, Germany. This strategic move comes as a result of the integration of DIV within Doosan Bobcat, a leader in the compact equipment industry.
The new location in Halle Sachsen-Anhalt, where Doosan Bobcat already operates its daily business for Bobcat construction equipment spare parts, boasts a significantly larger facility of 34,500sqm, compared to the previous location in Belgium of 3200sqm. This expansion will have a positive impact on the availability of Doosan spare parts in all of continental Europe.
By relocating the Parts Distribution Centre, Doosan Industrial Vehicle aims to deliver a number of benefits for its parts delivery service, ensuring an enhanced experience for its partners and customers. The key advantages include a late cut-off period at 18:30 (EU countries) and 17:30 (Non-EU countries), a considerable improvement from the current 15:00 cut-off time. Additionally, the new centre enables next-day delivery service to the entire European Union territory, due to its close proximity of just 15 minutes to the DHL Air Hub, facilitating swift transportation.
The completion of the transition to the German Parts Distribution Centre builds upon Doosan Bobcat’s long-standing operations in Halle, where the company has amassed valuable data and experience, enabling them to provide an exceptional customer experience.
“We are delighted to announce the successful transfer to our Parts Distribution Center in Germany,” said Paulo Florindo, vice president of Aftermarket & Product Support at Doosan Bobcat. “This move represents an important milestone in our ongoing commitment to enhancing our services and delivering a top-notch customer experience throughout. The new facility in Halle, with 10 times larger span will allow us to streamline our operations, improve delivery times, and offer greater flexibility to our customers.”
