The supply of construction machinery service parts needs to be speedy and on-time for construction machinery at construction and mining sites around the world to operate stably without downtime. Hitachi Construction Machinery has contributed to the stable operation of our customers’ machinery by supplying service parts to our Regional Parts Distribution Centers across the world from the Tsukuba Parts Center (Tsukuba City, Ibaraki Prefecture, Japan), our service parts control center that began operation in May 2014. In addition, with the start of full-scale independent expansion in the Americas, in March 2022 we began operation of a parts distribution center near Atlanta USA (see attachment). The operation of both bases is outsourced on a 3PL basis to the Hitachi Transport Group, and we are working to strengthen our global supply system, including in the Americas.
Specializing in service parts for mining machinery, the building specifications of the Ami Parts Center are compatible with super-sized, heavy loads. In addition to the consignment space, it is also equipped with a dedicated outbound area, with the ability to ship overseas from the Center. The Ami Parts Center will serve as our second major base for service parts, following on from the Tsukuba Parts Center.
The Hitachi Construction Machinery Group will continue to contribute to the stable operation of our customers’ machinery through the prompt and reliable supply of service parts.
*3PL: Abbreviation of 3rd Party Logistics. The execution of all distribution operations of the company is outsourced in its entirety to a third-party enterprise.
