Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) has signed on DB Schenker for automotive spare parts logistics in Australia.
The scope of service comprises cartage, warehousing and domestic transport. These services will be performed for FCA’s automotive brands including Alfa Romeo, Chrysler, Fiat, Jeep, SRT, Abarth and Mopar. DB Schenker will run the warehouse at FCA Headquarters in Port Melbourne and provide receiving, storage and dispatching services, as well as final delivery to FCA’s dealer network nationwide.
In the future the Melbourne set-up will likely be complemented by forward stocking locations in Queensland and Western Australia.
The warehousing service is said to be supported by the latest technology and also integrates with DB Schenker’s transport management system delivering a functional set-up that supports FCA’s material flows.
