MAHLE Aftermarket Opens New Mississippi Warehouse

MAHLE Aftermarket has opened a new automated warehouse in Olive Branch, Mississippi, the company announced.

The warehouse aims to speed up deliveries to workshops and distributors, reduces the frequency of returns, and enables an order to be commissioned within 30 minutes, MAHLE representatives said.

MAHLE has invested over $6 million in the 13,000 sq. ft., fully automated facility, the company said, with additional warehouse locations in Europe to be similarly outfitted beginning in 2023.

“MAHLE Aftermarket has been operating digitally in many areas for a long time now. We’re building upon that with automated order-picking, to better serve our customers,” says Olaf Henning, member of the MAHLE Management Committee and Director of the Aftermarket business unit.

The automated system MAHLE choose uses only about one quarter of the area of a conventional warehouse, the company said, and will reduce costs and decreases the amount of land needed for logistics locations.

The Olive Branch location, which includes production and logistics operations, currently houses 22,000 different filtration and thermal management products and engine components. Additionally, the logistics center serves as a flexible and scalable way to organize consumables for the on-site production of engine gaskets, the company said. In 2023, the next logistics location to be converted will be Décines in France.
