Chrysler Opens Warehouses

Chrysler and majority owner Fiat have opened parts-distribution warehouses in Russia, Japan and Australia under the Mopar brand, the companies said.

The move completes the transition of Chrysler distribution centers from the Auburn Hills, Michigan-based company's former owner, Daimler.

There are now 52 distribution centers for Fiat and Chrysler globally, each of them under the companies' Mopar service, parts and customer-care brand.

The Japan warehouse opened on Sept. 1, and the Australia and Russia warehouses opened in July.

The warehouses are to support dealerships in the three countries, said Pietro Gorlier, president and chief executive officer of the Mopar brand. In Russia, a 4,500-square-meter warehouse will serve nearly 140 dealers.
