TOKYO/YOKOHAMA, Japan – Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. and Mitsubishi Motors Corp. will jointly use a spare parts warehouse near Tokyo and share a regional delivery network as they work together more closely to reduce costs.
The companies will both use Nissan’s Sagamihara Parts Center, about 30 kilometers southwest of Tokyo, beginning in October this year. They also plan to share the warehouse’s delivery network in the Kanto region, which includes the Tokyo metropolitan area.
The plan is part of a convergence of aftersales functions led by the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi partnership, which Mitsubishi joined in October 2016. Nissan and Mitsubishi expect the joint operations to reduce costs through synergies such as more effective use of vacant storage space and increased efficiency in transportation.
Under the plan, more than 30,000 spare parts and accessories for Mitsubishi customers will be stored at the Sagamihara center and some will be shipped jointly with Nissan spare parts. Mitsubishi doesn’t currently own a large-scale spare parts warehouse in the Kanto region. By reducing lead times between orders and deliveries, the companies aim to improve customer satisfaction with Mitsubishi aftersales in the region.
