Meritor Opens Distribution Center in Singapore

With a distribution reach to Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Myanmar, Philippines and Taiwan the new facility will provide commercial vehicle axle-brake-driveline-suspension parts – under the Meritor, TruckTechnic and Gabriel brands - to over 18 distributors in the region, along with thousands of end-user truck operators.

“Our global experience with serving our customers has enabled us to incorporate many advancements in this new distribution center complete with offices, training center, warehouse and new Oracle ERP system, as well as trained associates in efficient packaging and distribution,” said Eike Torsten Merz, Managing Director, Aftermarket & Trailer Asia Pacific, Meritor. “Our speed-to-customers in Asia Pacific will improve dramatically, as well as our ample critical-parts inventory to meet all truck-tractor-trailer service parts demands.”

The Singapore facility is another expansion of the company’s aftermarket footprint, by which commercial vehicle customers are serviced and supplied by a growing footprint of aftermarket distribution centers. The other fully set up operations in India, China and Australia will all be managed by the Singapore Asia Pacific headquarter.

The facility is another facility integral to the company’s recent launch into an aftermarket-based, third-party multiple logistics business called Meritor Logistics which offers unique competencies including packaging and kitting, material planning, warehousing, distribution, customer support, core consolidation, remanufacturing and consulting services.
