TOYOTA INAUGURATES NEW DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM
FOR OVERSEAS PARTS SUPPLY
TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION recently introduced a new overseas replacement parts distribution system that will dramatically reduce the amount of time needed for overseas parts delivery. The new system will allow Toyota to cut 20 days, or some 40%, off the current average of 50 days required from order placement by an overseas distributor to actual delivery. Toyota hopes the new system will help cut distributor inventories and at the same time improve various information and communications services through the adoption of leased telecommunications circuits.
