John Deere opened its Worldwide Parts Services Regional Distribution Center (RDC) in Miami.

The 115,000-sq.-ft. facility will service all Latin America countries, except Brazil, Argentina and Mexico, which have their own in-country distribution centers.

Prior to the opening of this RDC, Latin America dealers were serviced from the North America Parts Distribution Center in Milan, Illinois, and the South America Parts Distribution Center in Campinas, Sao Paulo, Brazil. According to the company, positioning inventory in Miami to support the Latin America market will improve cycle time on machine down orders and stock orders.

“Latin America is a key market for John Deere, and this new facility will improve logistics cycle time and ordering consistency for our dealer network in the region,” says David Thorne, senior vice president of sales & marketing at John Deere’s Worldwide Construction & Forestry Division. “The Miami RDC will significantly enhance the competitiveness of Construction & Forestry dealers in the market and allow them to better serve our customers with the parts they need, when they need them.”
