Meritor Expands Canadian Distribution Center
TROY, Mich. – Meritor has expanded its aftermarket distribution center in Edmonton, saying it will improve service and delivery time to its western Canada OE dealer and warehouse distributor customers. The 35,000-sq-ft facility now stocks a full line of Meritor and Euclid drivetrain and undercarriage products.
The expansion improves product availability which will reduce lead times by as much as 70 percent, according to Doug Jamieson, site manager.
“Our expanded center in Edmonton enables us to consolidate and expedite a customer’s order for Meritor and Euclid parts into one shipment for faster delivery,” Jamieson said.
Customers in British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan were previously served through Meritor’s distribution center in Brampton, Ont.
The expanded Edmonton facility complements Meritor Logistics, the company’s new third-party multiple logistic service. Recently launched, this aftermarket-based service aims to improve distribution, packaging capabilities, and remanufacturing techniques within a given country or an entire continent.
Meritor also operates distribution centers in the United States, Mexico, United Kingdom, Germany, Brazil, Australia, China, Singapore and India. The entire operation is said to serve nearly 6,000 customers globally.
