Paccar Parts opens new state of the art distribution center in Washington

Paccar Parts has officially opened its new $32 million, state-of-the-art distribution center in Renton, Wash. Servicing dealers in the Northwestern U.S. and Western Canada, the new 160,000 sq.-ft. parts distribution center (PDC) is almost three times the capacity of its predecessor built in 1973.

The Renton PDC represents the new standard for Paccar Parts distribution centers by incorporating strategic design, innovative technology and sustainability. With a 15,000 sq.-ft. small-parts mezzanine and state-of-the-art equipment such as stock-picking equipment with built-in weight scales and a custom parcel conveyor, the facility provides operational efficiency and a 125 percent increase in capacity of parts, enabling it to store over 39,000 different parts.
