A group of Scania retailers in Central Sweden has signed a 3-year deal with AxIndustries’ subsidiary Trailereffekter. The agreement is very unusual in the industry, because few suppliers offer a complete range of spare parts for trailers. It’s the first time that a group of private Scania retailers have united to carry out a joint purchase. The final choice was based on Trailereffekter being one of the few distributors to have a high technical competence and comprehensive overall product range, while also excelling in the fields of service and availability.
Through this deal, Trailereffekter guarantees overnight deliveries of trailer spare parts to workshops in the client group. This means that repairs can be performed the following day as required by the customer. The time schedule is extremely tight, and a local presence is one of the conditions. Arver Lastbilar, one of the Scania retailers, also cites the possibility of reducing the number of suppliers as being a clear advantage. Logistics and processes can be better coordinated, stock-keeping kept to a minimum at the retailers’ workshops, and invoicing and budgets are facilitated. For Trailereffekter the deal is naturally a great business opportunity and a much more efficient way of distributing spare parts for trailers.
