Mopar opens three new centers in Japan, Australia and Russia

Fiat and Chrysler’s Mopar brand has opened parts distribution warehouses in Japan, Australia and Russia, the companies announced on Wednesday.

The move ends the transition of Chrysler distribution centers from the Auburn Hills, Michigan-based company’s former owner, Daimler AG. Fiat and Chrysler now have 52 distribution centers for globally, each of them under the Mopar brand, which handles service, parts and customer-care. The Japan warehouse opened on September 1, while those in Australia and Russia started service in July.

Previously, Fiat had its own distribution centers, which are now under the Mopar brand, according to Mopar spokesman Bryan Zvibleman. The three new warehouses support dealerships in the three countries. The Japan distribution center is located in Yokohama, occupies 11,000 square meters and will serve 145 outlets with more than 41,000 parts.

The 10,000-square-meter Australian center is in Port Melbourne, Victoria, and will host more than 18,600 parts for 75 dealerships. The Russian warehouse is smaller, at 4,500-square-meters, and will supply nearly 140 dealers with more than 20,000 auto parts. These three new distribution centers add to those opened in Shanghai and Dubai last year and in Brazil and Argentina earlier this year.
