Mercedes-Benz has finalised the planning for a regional After-Sales Logistics Center at Senai Airport City, Johor Bahru, with the signing of a long-term lease agreement for the location. The hub is scheduled to begin operations in 2024.
The new distribution Centre will become a part of the global Daimler AG After-Sales Supply Chain Network, and will serve as a distribution site for spare parts across the Asia Pacific region and other countries, responsible for the importation, storage, as well as regional management of spare parts and accessories distribution.
The marque has enlisted developer Tiong Nam Logistics Solutions as the lead developer for the location, as well as the owner of the new warehouse. The hub will have a build-up area of approximately 1 million square feet, and will be equipped with the latest building and storage management systems.
A new company, “Mercedes-Benz Parts Logistics Asia Pacific (Malaysia)”, has also been established in the country for the operation of the new After-Sales Logistics Centre in Malaysia, and is 100% owned by Mercedes-Benz AG.
“With our planned After-Sales Logistics Center, Mercedes-Benz is committed and will invest to strengthen our foothold in Malaysia. We have found excellent conditions and great support in cooperation with MIDA and the related ministries,” said Mercedes-Benz VP of Global Service & Parts Operations, Thomas Schulz.
“Located strategically in Johor Bahru, this new After-Sales Logistics Center will enable us to reaffirm our position as a global and regional distribution hub whilst creating new jobs for the region. Both our customers and our dealer networks will enjoy a good service and high-quality standards through this new infrastructure.”
