PACCAR Breaks Ground on New Germany Parts DC

The new 240,000 sq.-ft. facility, expected to open in 2024, will store over 80,000 different parts.

PACCAR Parts announced it began construction of a new Parts Distribution Center (PDC) in the city of Massbach, Bayern, Germany, with an official groundbreaking ceremony on Sept. 5, 2023, signaling the beginning of a $91.5 million (€85 million) investment, the company said.

The new 240,000-square-foot (22,000 square meters) facility will be situated on a 54-acre (22 hectares) site and is expected to open in 2024. It is designed to provide world-class service to the DAF dealer network with shipments and emergency orders delivered within hours, PACCAR said. The facility will have the capacity to store over 80,000 different parts.

The new facility will utilize leading-edge technologies and innovations, including voice-directed material handling, the most advanced scanning equipment and automated packaging systems to boost order fulfillment, according to PACCAR.

PACCAR says the new PDC will help advance its environmental initiatives with the building being solar powered and incorporating ‘green roof’ concepts. Eco-friendly heat pumps maintain building temperature all year round. Electric truck charging facilities will be installed at the site and the entire fleet of material handling equipment will be electric, resulting in zero onsite gas emissions and quiet operations.

“The strategic location of the Massbach PDC expands our dealer reach and will reinforce our commitment to world-class service in aftermarket parts distribution,” said Laura Bloch, PACCAR Parts general manager and PACCAR vice president. “We take pride in upholding our core values of providing customers with the highest product availability, best customer experience and unmatched value in the industry.”
