Paccar Parts announced the opening of a new 163,000-square-foot parts distribution center in Ponta Grossa, Brazil. It serves all dealerships across Brazil.

The new distribution center has six times the capacity of the facility it replaced and is the latest addition to the Paccar Parts global distribution network, which includes 18 PDCs with more than 3.1 million square feet of warehouse space, according to the Renton, Wash.-based company, a unit of Paccar Inc.

The Ponta Grossa facility features LED lights and skylights that use daylight harvesting technology and reflective white roofing material to reduce building heat gain. A training center will allow the PDC to host educational and informational meetings with dealers, fleet customers, suppliers and Paccar employees. — Transport Topics
