DAF to open 30m euro distribution centre


DAF Trucks is investing 30m euros in a parts distribution centre at Eidhoven in the Netherlands.

Construction of the 26,000 sq m building will start in July and is expected to be completed in the first half of next year.

“The new distribution centre replaces the existing Eindhoven distribution centre and provides additional capacity and operating efficiency to support DAF’s growth”, said Harrie Schippers, DAF Trucks president.

Paccar Parts distributes aftermarket truck parts throughout Europe, using five distribution centres: Madrid, Budapest, Moscow, Leyland and Eindhoven.

Dick Leek, Paccar Parts Europe general manager, said: “The new distribution centre will use world-class technology such as advanced logistics systems, radio-frequency identification, smart tags and computer-generated voice picking.”
