Wabash announced the creation of a new tech-enabled Wabash Parts distribution network. This will unify and expand Wabash’s parts distribution capabilities across all product lines and provides immediate scale to grow.
“As an end-to-end solutions and service provider, we’re able to offer customers the convenience of working with a one-stop-shop through the entire product lifecycle,” says Nick Adler, vice president, Wabash Parts and Services. “We’re excited to bring our customers best-in-class parts and services including a simplified experience, an extensive selection of well-stocked parts, and faster deliveries — all through Wabash.”
According to the company, this single channel distribution network will, over time, include the entire Wabash aftermarket portfolio as well as a wide range of transportation parts with increased inventory and faster shipping. Wabash Parts distribution will leverage the company’s extensive network of equipment dealers’ service capabilities, as well as the infrastructure of industry-leading partners of national wholesale distribution for aftermarket heavy-duty truck and trailers parts, utilizing multiple distribution centers across the country.
“This new distribution offering from Wabash really simplifies things for us. In a time of supply chain challenges around us, we appreciate being able to count on Wabash having parts in stock that we need and getting them to us quickly to keep our customer’s equipment on the road,” said Jamey Vaughn, president, Twin State Trailers.
Wabash continues to invest in a greater portfolio of offerings, more seamless digital systems, and a market-leading value proposition for its partners. Wabash Parts and Services distribution capabilities currently serve van trailer and truck body customers and dealers. Parts distribution for other Wabash product lines will phase in throughout 2022, the company says.
“We are excited to be a part of the Wabash Parts distribution network. The new capabilities that Wabash is developing create new growth opportunities for their dealer partners like us and help us better support our fleet customers,” says Mark Hall, general manager, Stoops Freightliner – Quality Trailer.
“Wabash is connecting across the transportation ecosystem to facilitate interactions and improve operations,” adds Adler. “The new Wabash Parts distribution network is leveraging the power of Wabash’s unique position at the intersection of suppliers, dealers and customers, while increasing the distribution capabilities needed to enhance speed and availability to market.”
