WAI reaches national agreement with Marathon Warehouse Distribution

Published:  11 June, 2018

WAIglobal has reached a national distribution agreement with Marathon Warehouse Distribution to supply a full range of WAI branded products to motor factors on a same day delivery service through Marathon’s expanding distribution centre network. As part of the agreement, Marathon’s 14 branch network will stock WAI’s 2,500 starter motors and alternators, clutch pulleys, 400+ ignition coils,121 MAF sensors, 56 wiper motors and 2,800 window regulators.

WAI customer stock orders will continue to be supplied through the company’s Bognor Regis warehouse on a next day delivery service, but with the implementation of the same day service, it will bring WAI even closer to the motor factor and ensure immediate access to ‘grey tail’ products.

Richard Welland, WAIglobal UK Managing Director, said:  “The growing complexity of the vehicle parc means that motor factors have to stock a wider range of products to suitably cover customer demand. The best way to meet this demand is with a same day supply of a full range of WAI products and Marathon Warehouse Distribution is the perfect vehicle for us to achieve this.”

Colin Fisher, Marathon Warehouse Distribution Sales and Marketing Director, added: “The ambition of WAI matches our own and we’re delighted to be stocking the widest range of WAI products and supplying the brand to motor factors on a frequent same day basis. We’re an independent national warehouse distributor and our logistics platform has to be able to offer motor factor customers a full range of high quality products both quickly and efficiently.”
