Jaguar Land Rover India, part
of Tata Motors, has opened a new Parts Distribution Centre (PDC) for the
country, in Bhiwandi, near Mumbai. This state-of-the-art facility, spread over 70,000
square feet, will have regionally-optimised inventory supporting both Jaguar
and Land Rover brands, controlled by Jaguar Land Rover’s central Inventory
The centre will have a
dedicated, on-site, Customer Service Team which will provide local customer
service support to the expanding market for Jaguar Land Rover vehicles in
India. The PDC will improve the regional supply chain velocity by allowing
greater readiness and responsiveness to local requirements and in turn
enhancing the overall customer experience.
On the safety front, this new
facility is equipped with a state-of-the-art fire-fighting system aided by very
early smoke detection apparatus which is far more sensitive than a conventional
system. The Parts Distribution Centre also has in-rack sprinklers for better
safety, in addition to overhead sprinklers.

Jaguar Land Rover India, said: “This world-class Parts Distribution Centre will
further strengthen our service levels and the investment reinforces JLR' s long
term commitment to the Indian market.”
