With the opening of the new Regional Distribution Centre (RDC) in Delta, British Columbia, BMW Group Canada completes a series of infrastructure investments that position the company for the future, provide better service to retailers nationwide, and enhance the customer’s overall ownership experience.
In addition to the new facility in B.C., BMW also opened a new parts warehouse in Mississauga, Ontario in the spring of 2018. These builds tie in to major restructuring BMW AG has been coordinating to enhance the global supply chain network and make it more efficient. Part of the enhancements involved creating two new continental parts hubs, one in China and the other in the United States. The new Delta facility will take advantage of the U.S. hub, which stores and ships North American-made parts across the continent, providing faster parts deliveries to retailers across Canada.
“The beginning of outbound service at the Regional Distribution Centre in Delta is an exciting conclusion to some large-scale logistics projects,” said Tracy Bulmer, aftersales director, BMW Group Canada. “At the heart of these efforts is our customer. With our new ability to receive and ship a larger assortment of parts more quickly than before, we can provide a better ownership experience for them. And that is our number one goal.”
“Congratulations to BMW Group Canada on opening its new regional distribution centre at the Delta Link Business Park,” said Mayor George Harvie of Delta, British Columbia. “We are thrilled to have a company of this stature choose the City of Delta as its home for the region. This large facility brings good jobs to support the local economy at a crucial time. We look forward to many years of great connections with BMW, which we are now pleased to welcome into Delta’s business family.”
