In order to increase delivery efficiency, Nissan Motor India on 6 May inaugurated its new after-sales Parts Distribution Centre (PDI) in Chennai. The new PDC will help optimise Nissan’s supply-chain management process in India by ensuring a more efficient delivery of spare parts to its authorised workshops across the country. This is expected to facilitate quicker service offered to the customers.


The new PDC is spread across 4.8 lakh sq feet area, which can handle 20,000 parts for both Renault and Nissan brands. PDC will be directly managed by Nissan Motor India with the support of Indospace, Yusen Logistics, Nippon Express and Vantec Logistics India. It features a daily outbound volume of 2800 lines per day compared to the previous facility’s 700 lines and has an increased dispatch rate of 90%, making it capable of dispatching parts the same day to different parts of India.




Kenichiro Yomura, President, Nissan India Operations, said, “Our new after-sales PDC reaffirms our commitment to customers in India. Efficient supply of spare parts across our existing service network is imperative to complement our plan to increase our sales touchpoints. Our plan is to have a hub-and-spoke parts distribution model. We will set up additional regional spare parts distribution centres in other locations in India in coming months, while Chennai will be the distribution hub.”







The centre procures parts from across 200 local suppliers and import parts for its CBU model X-Trail. It will also export parts to various countries through its distribution channels. The facility is situated at Indospace SKCL Industrial Park near Oragadam and employ about 300 floor members. The material storage facility comprises heavy duty racking, shelving racks, stillage and trolleys.
