Paccar Electronic Catalog System
November 4, 2011

Paccar Parts Fleet Services’ electronic catalog (ECAT) system, which is accessible to fleets, now uses vehicle maintenance reporting standard (VMRS) codes to make part searches easier. The ECAT system is a web-based application designed to provide detailed parts lists for Kenworth and Peterbilt trucks and in-depth component catalogs for PACCAR Parts Fleet Services customers. The system uses VMRS codes for industry consistent cataloging of components, such as diesel particulate filters and emission control-related components. Also, TRP Aftermarket Parts are easily identified using cross reference tools within the system, according to PACCAR. Fleet managers, shop technicians and parts personnel are now able to research parts and create electronic list orders without having to manually write down part numbers. Once a truck’s chassis number is entered, the system retrieves a complete list of components and materials added to the truck by the manufacturer or body builder.
