Jaguar Land Rover India has opened a new Parts Distribution Centre (PDC) for the country, in Bhiwandi, near Mumbai. This state-of-the-art facility, spread over 70,000 square feet, will have regionally-optimised inventory supporting both Jaguar and Land Rover brands, controlled by Jaguar Land Rover’s central Inventory Management team.
Rohit Suri, President of Jaguar Land Rover India, said: “This world-class Parts Distribution Centre will further strengthen our service levels and the investment reinforces JLR' s long term commitment to the Indian market.” The Parts Distribution Centre will have a dedicated, on-site, Customer Service Team which will provide local customer service support to the expanding market for Jaguar Land Rover vehicles in India. The PDC will improve the regional supply chain velocity by allowing greater readiness and responsiveness to local requirements and in turn enhancing the overall customer experience.
Making it one of the safest warehouses in the country, this new facility is equipped with a state-of-the-art fire-fighting system aided by very early smoke detection apparatus which is far more sensitive than a conventional system. The Parts Distribution Centre also has in-rack sprinklers for better safety, in addition to overhead sprinklers. Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles are available in India through 21 authorised retailers in Ahmedabad, Aurangabad, Bengaluru, Bhubaneswar, Chandigarh, Chennai, Coimbatore, Delhi (at Janpath & Mathura Road), Gurgaon, Hyderabad, Indore, Jaipur, Kolkata, Kochi, Karnal, Ludhiana, Mumbai, Nagpur, Pune and Raipur.
