FinditParts, a supplier of heavy-duty truck and trailer parts online, today announced it has launched FinditParts Express, an expedited shipping program to guarantee second-day delivery on select items based on recent enhancements to its distribution system.
According to the company, more than 50,000 of the fastest-moving, most popular items in FinditParts’ online catalog of more than 6 million parts will be eligible for guaranteed two-day delivery to most U.S. shipping zones.
“The new Express program highlights the company’s commitment to improving its distribution system, most notably the addition of nine regional shipping warehouses throughout the continental United States,” the company noted.
“We listened to our customers and the one thing they said they wanted most was faster delivery times,” said David Seewack, founder and CEO of FinditParts. “Now, in addition to being the largest single provider of heavy duty truck parts online, we’re also the fastest.”
“I think in the heavy-duty space we really are the online leader today,” Seewack added. “One of the Achilles heel for us is that the average delivery time might have been 3-5 business days. This [new program] enables us an ecosystem that can deliver a 2-day business model similar to Amazon’s.”
According to the company, products on the FinditParts website bearing the Express badge are automatically eligible for 2-day delivery. Some qualify for free shipping and same-day shipping, depending upon on the recipient’s proximity to FinditParts’ regional distribution centers.
In addition to the hard-to-find parts for which it originally became known, FinditParts said it offers every type of preventive maintenance and regular stocking items. The company noted it also offers customized contract pricing for the parts its fleet customers purchase most frequently.
“The reality is if you have a truck down and you need to get your truck running today, we’ll never be the provider for a customer,” Seewack said. “But if they need a stock order or to replenish an item, they’ll be able to get it in 1-2 days. You just know that in hell or high water your part is going to get to you in two days.”
