New Vancouver commercial tire distribution centre will cater to the needs of commercial and OTR tire customers.
Huayi Tire Canada has announced the opening of their first Canadian commercial tire distribution centre in Vancouver, British Columbia.
“Vancouver is the first point of entry for Asian products into North America, and it is the perfect location to open our first OTR and commercial truck tire distribution centre,” said John Hagg, Vice President of Sales and Operations for HTC. “This new distribution centre is the backbone of our expansion beyond our Factory Container Direct Program. Our mission is to support the immediate needs of our commercial tire dealers as well. A container of tires can take as long as 90 days and sometimes longer to get to a customer. Our new Vancouver facility will get commercial and OTR tires to them much sooner—within seven to ten days, even to our customers in the Eastern Provinces.”
The new facility has the capacity to inventory 15,000 tires, and will receive shipments of several thousands of OTR and TBR tires each month.
