Porsche Cars Canada, Ltd., has recently selected DB Schenker Canada to operate their new parts distribution center in Mississauga, Ontario. For the next three years, the global logistics provider will work with the manufacturer of high-performance automobiles to run a streamlined logistics process that caters to Porsche’s highly discerning customers.
“The faster we can do repairs and get our customers’ cars back on the road again, the better. DB Schenker understands that mentality and our brand. That’s why they were a great fit for this new facility.” Said Mr. George Fremis, Manager, Parts Operations & Logistics, Porsche Cars Canada, Ltd.
The culmination of two years of planning, the new parts distribution center (PDC) is around 176,000 square feet in size, with around 140,000 square feet of the facility operated by DB Schenker. The remaining space will be used as a national training center, test vehicle storage, and potentially a “Porsche Classic Café” to showcase the brand, their innovations, and host customers.
This is the DB Schenker’s third PDC project with Porsche, which is also working with DB Schenker in China and South Korea. Previously, Canadian Porsche centers received their spare parts and lifestyle goods from one of three PDCs in the US. According to Fremis, the automaker wanted to shorten their parts lead times while also increasing their service levels in the growing Canadian market.
Mr. Fremis revealed that DB Schenker was selected for their broad range of logistics expertise, track record in the automotive market, and their high service levels. “DB Schenker presented the PDC solution that was comprehensive and that made the most sense for us,” he added.
For Porsche, DB Schenker manages the parts storage and inventory management; picking and packing; and dispatch to the final destination (in Canada). The new facility is expected to ship about 282,000 orders during its first year of operation.
