Volkswagen AG opened a $40 million logistics center in Roane County, Tenn., to reduce delivery times of components for the Passat mid-sized sedan.
The 459,000-square-foot (41,300-square-meter) complex is starting as a redistribution center to serve warehouses and will later expand to include spare-parts supply for more than 110 vehicle retailers in the southeast United States, VW said today in a statement.
“This new facility serves as tangible proof of the clear commitment that Volkswagen Group of America has to meeting the needs of our dealers and our growing customer base,” Anu Goel, vice president of parts and vehicle logistics at the manufacturer’s U.S. division, said in the statement.
