Warehousing is a critical aspect of spare parts distribution, especially now that the last three Australian carmakers have announced that they will discontinue local vehicle assembly. The flow on of negative impacts of greatly reduced volumes on local component manufacturers and importers means those companies have to balance decisions on their supply lines to match these changing conditions.

They, as well as local independent aftermarket suppliers, need to ensure that warehousing for spare parts and accessory distribution is optimised. Aftermarket spare parts and accessory warehousing can vary in size and density depending on the brands market penetration and vehicle type they cater for and size of product.

One of the important decisions that aftermarket businesses, whether they be OEM or independent suppliers, dealers or retailers must make about warehousing is whether to outsource it or keep it in-house. The choice of whether or not to outsource depends on a company’s distribution priorities, motivation and a product’s lifecycle. In some cases, the investment in a warehouse just might be too high for a market or a product or indeed stock turnover. Many choose to outsource, as indicated by the number of third party logistics providers such as Curlett, Cannon & Galbell who are involved in the automotive aftermarket-warehousing sector. Curlett, Cannon & Galbell Pty Ltd (CCG) is headquartered in Tullamarine, Victoria and has warehousing facilities and affiliations in Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth and is also a pick and pack distributor for original equipment and quality aftermarket replacement automotive parts for various companies. The company distributes brand recognized automotive parts directly to automotive manufactures, and independent and domestic service centres in Australia wide on behalf of local manufacturers, and importers. CCG offers their clients their highly praised boutique services that cover their clients and customers’ needs.

For over 11 years they provided Customs Clearance, warehousing, pick and pack, and despatch service to French based electronics manufacturer who supplied their Bougicord ignition leads, ignition lead harnesses, temperature, position, speed sensors, ignition coils to Holden and Ford for the OEM and OES operations as well as various independent aftermarket European specialists. In fact, the company President Patrick Thollin has thanked the CCG team for its outstanding service. Currently CCG supply full 3PL service to an OEM supplier automotive vehicle owner manual covers for locally produced and imported vehicles, including the warehousing of locally supplied and imported components and printed matter, and their insertion into the cover for On-time – Kanban delivery.
