03 March 2020, Dubai, UAE: Jaguar Land Rover will begin construction of a new Parts Distribution Centre during the first quarter of 2020 to serve its discerning customers across the Middle East and North Africa. Scheduled to be operational during the first quarter of 2021. This will allow Jaguar Land Rover to meet projected growth in demand for parts and accessories over the next decade and beyond. This demand is driven by an increase in the number of cars joining the region’s roads. The new distribution centre will be located at Dubai’s Jebel Ali Free Zone Authority (JAFZA).
Jaguar Land Rover has operated a regional aftermarket Parts Distribution Centre in Jebel Ali, Dubai, since 2014, serving nine MENA markets with genuine components, but needed to expand its operations. The new facility will gradually inherit operations from the current site in November 2020, to ensure minimal disruption to customers.
The development will provide 19,000 sq metres of storage capacity, with the option to expand to 30,000 sq metres in the future. The added space will allow Jaguar Land Rover to hold and distribute approximately 32,000 part numbers, including branded merchandise from the luxury marque. Responsible for all inbound, warehousing, scheduling, and distribution tasks, the new facility will streamline the flow of parts to retail partners across the region, enhancing customer service.
“This is a key element of our regional expansion plans as we recognise the importance of offering first-class aftersales service, an essential ingredient of which is rapid parts supply,” said Bruce Robertson, Managing Director Jaguar Land Rover MENA. “The new facility with its increased storage capacity ensures that our retail partners, and subsequently our customers, will always receive a fast and efficient response, whatever model they own. Demonstrating our long-term commitment to the MENA region, this new distribution centre has been developed to keep pace with the projected growth of the market in the years to come. It will also makes sure that as our reach widens, we’ll maintain an exceptional service for Jaguar Land Rover’s discerning customers across the region.”
Paul Lane, Customer Service Director, Jaguar Land Rover MENA commented: 'The entire range of Jaguar Land Rover parts and accessories is available through our distributors in nine regional markets, and supplying them all is a big operation. We’ll be better equipped to do so with the increased capacity, which further cements our ‘customer first’ commitment through the timely availability of genuine Jaguar Land Rover components. We always emphasise the importance of choosing original parts and accessories for any model in our portfolio, as they come with a seal of authenticity.
