Navistar to link inventories with OEConnection

Navistar has announced OEConnection, an online parts and service exchange in the automotive industry, will link the company’s dealers’ parts inventory and speed up customer repairs through OEConnections’ parts supply chain and intelligence tools.

Beginning this month, Navistar will implement OEConnection’s solutions for more than 280 International dealerships across 800 locations in the United States and Canada. Accessing OEConnection’s online parts sourcing and idle inventory reduction tools, Navistar will create a parts supply network and shorten part cycle-times. International dealers can view each others’ stock in real time and pull from other dealers’ stock to fulfill customer needs. Reducing backorders will help speed up customer repairs. These tools will also enable Navistar to limit in-channel idle inventory and provide boosted fill rates.
