Swedish luxury automaker Volvo has inaugurated their National Parts Warehouse in India. The spare parts warehouse is located at Bhiwandi, Maharashtra and has been inaugurated in collaboration with DSV Solutions India. Dedicated towards supporting the growing demand for parts across dealerships in India, the newly inaugurated warehouse will reduce waiting time for customers and is a step in the right direction for the company’s aim to provide global top-tier service standards, as claimed by Volvo.
Speaking at the inauguration, Charles Frump, Managing Director-Volvo Car India said, "I am pleased to announce the opening of our National Parts Warehouse in India today. This will provide World-Class customer service and support our ambition of doubling segment share by 2020. With DSV as our partners I am confident we will reduce turnaround time for our customers. The warehouse increases liquidity at the dealers and enables them to concentrate on customers even more."
Also speaking at the occasion, Martin Persson- Volvo Car Group Vice President, Global Customer Service said, "India is a high growth potential market and the recent performance of Volvo Car India increases the headquarters confidence in the local management. India is already providing great customer experience and investing in this infrastructure will raise the bar even higher."
Addressing the media at the event, Ketan Shah, Managing Director DSV Solutions India said, "Our core competency is a smooth execution of Warehouse solutions and my team will ensure Volvo Car India will greatly benefit from our partnership."
Apart from this, Volvo is also planning to accelerate its manufacturing footprint in the country as they have set up the manufacturing plant almost a year ago in Bmagalore. The company is currently focusing on majority of its product portfolio to be locally manufactured in the coming two years as it aims to compete more strongly with its German rivals including BMW, Mercedes and Audi. One more important thing is that the Swedish automaker is also planning to expand its plug-in hybrid and electric vehicle portfolio in India and aims to launch one million electrified cars globally.
