Porsche began operations at its first-ever Canadian parts fulfilment centre located in Mississauga, in the Heartland Town Centre.
The 175,000 sq. ft. facility offers ground and air overnight delivery to the 19 Porsche Centres coast-to-coast, in a two-shift model operated by logistics company DB Schenker.
“We are thrilled to kick-off the operations of a project that has been many years in the making,” said Marc Ouayoun, president & CEO, Porsche Cars Canada, Ltd. “With ample capacity to meet growing demand, it paves the way to a bright future in supplying parts for Porsche Centres and their customers even more rapidly and efficiently.”
A small ceremony marked the first part picked, earmarked for Porsche Centre North Toronto. The first shipment to leave the warehouse was destined for the Quebec province, which is home to four Porsche Centres.
In addition to great access to major 400-series highways, the warehouse is strategically located near Toronto’s Pearson and Hamilton’s John C. Munro airports.
