NAPA establishes itself as long term heavy duty provider for local fleets

With a network spanning Australia’s wide expanses, NAPA’s solutions have become a trusted part of the nation’s transport industry

NAPA has announced that it has established itself as a leading provider of heavy-duty products and services in Australia.

With a vast range of products and an extensive network of branches, NAPA has become a go-to destination for truck fleets looking for reliable solutions to keep their vehicles on the road.

From its wide range of heavy duty parts and accessories that include OE replacement alternators and starter motors, auto electrical accessories, air conditioning, lubrication, service parts and braking to smarter technologies and efficiencies, NAPA is focusing on keeping itself ahead of the curb for local fleets.

NAPA branches are located along the national land transport network to allow it to work with clients to have parts available where and when needed. Backed by the world’s largest supplier of automotive aftermarket parts, NAPA Auto Parts combines more than 95 years of product knowledge with distribution excellence.

By leveraging its national scale and international partnerships, NAPA provides cost and operational efficiencies at a local level to ensure the required parts arrive on time as quickly and efficiently as possible.

SAFETY FIRST

With a commitment to operating a safer business being deeply rooted into its company values, NAPA national sales manager of industrial Wesley Skewis says the brand drives initiatives in all areas of its business.

“We take safety to new levels, ensuring continuous improvement and the safest possible environment for anyone interacting with a NAPA team member, product or initiative,” Skewis told ATN.

QUALITY ASSURANCE

Skewis says NAPA takes quality seriously in products, know how, processes and suppliers. To ensure consistent quality from every aspect of the business, NAPA maintains an ISO 9001 accreditation which extends to its OE manufacturers, while leading brands and partners are encouraged to maintain the same certification.

The basis behind this is an understanding that quality products mean less down time, and NAPA is committed to suppling genuine value and quality.

SCALE AND CAPABILITY

NAPA leverages Australia’s most comprehensive network of automotive parts specialists with an unrivalled depth of knowledge and proven capability in responding to complex industry requirements.

“We can solve problems, provide technical expertise and provide valuable market insights to your business,” Skewis says.

MORE THAN JUST PARTS

NAPA aims to contribute to improved safety, increased productivity and profit growth for Australian fleets.
The business provides local operators with a professional advantage, presenting more opportunities for businesses to save time and money through smarter business activities.

While NAPA does sell parts, it also has the application and technical knowledge to ensure operators get the right products for a vehicle of any size. Importantly, NAPA also excels in implementing new efficiencies into organisations through vendor rationalisation programs, range consolidation activities, OE alternative supply chain options and inventory and vendor rationalisation and standardisation recommendations.

NAPA can also provide strategic sourcing programs, fleet profiling and packaging, automation, vending solutions and freight aggregation for customers.

ELECTRONIC INTEGRATION

Skewis says NAPA understands how precious the time of transport companies is. It has a unique e-commerce software, NAPA PROLink, which is a comprehensive, industry-leading online catalogue and e-commerce platform that allows teams to consistently and accurately identify and order the right parts for fleets and vehicles.

Designed to integrate into existing ERP/OCI systems to allow for 24/7 automated ordering, NAPA PROlink provides simplicity in multiple points in organisations. Features include a Google-type parts identification, plus live visibility of stock and price at the nearest NAPA site, technical support and a simple, responsive and easy to navigate platform.

“We leverage our expertise, range and capability to keep your workshop moving,” Skewis says.

“To us, our business is more than just parts. Our business is to make yours more efficient.”
