How does this automotive industry parts locator work?

Essentially this is the perfect complement to an already organised warehouse management system. The online parts offered are split into three different categories: old, obsolete and current. Old parts are sold with a 50% discount on current net dealer prices. Obsolete parts are sold with a 25% discount on current net dealer prices. While current parts are sold regularly in accordance with existing trading conditions. It’s up to individual dealers how each part is labelled - giving them full control over which and under what conditions the parts are sold. Dealers within the automotive industry can then tap into the wide global network that Parex Locator harbors - comprising over 5,500 automotive dealers including Audi, Fiat, Mazda, Volkswagen, Ford, Land Rover, Jaguar, Toyota etc. - and join the parts revolution.
It has been proven in Parex Locator’s experience that it can be quicker and cheaper to source a part from an obscure warehouse in a country across the world, than wait for a part to be back ordered. Implement this tool today, and harness the value of this automotive industry warehouse management system compliment.
