Volvo Cars Thailand (VCT) has taken quality control to the next level with the opening of a new warehouse. VCT knows the new warehouse as the Central Distribution and Training Centre (CDTC) and not only will it function as a distribution centre in the region but a training and service centre as well.

As you know, VCT currently does not have a production plant in Thailand. The manufacturers rely on imports from Volvo Car’s various plants across the world, including Malaysia (Volvo XC40 and Volvo XC60).

The new warehouse will be the first destination new Volvo cars will head to after arriving at the port before it is time to be delivered to customers in the region, this will ensure that the cars are out of the sun and kept in a controlled environment to maintain the factory quality of the cars.

But before the cars are delivered to their new owners the warehouse will subject each car to an inspection at the Pre-Delivery Service (PDS) bay.

PDS is a software station that provides a thorough inspection according to Volvo’s stringent standards on each car to ensure the software and systems are in perfect running condition before it is ready for delivery. The software programme is specifically developed by Volvo Cars.

Other than that, the warehouse also works as a Parts Distribution Centre that VCT hopes would enhance the efficiency of both before and after-sales services in the region.

There isn’t a time in memory that doesn’t involve staring at cars. After discovering the excitement of watching Schumacher vs Hakkinen, Formula 1 became a major part of life. The love for cars and F1 ultimately led to a job with CAR Magazine. The untimely death of the magazine meant a hiatus from cars at lifestyle women’s magazine Marie Claire before another opportunity came knocking again.
