Toyota Material Handling USA Inc (TMHU) has chosen Systems Material Handling Co (SMH) as the sole provider for its all-makes competitive parts program.
The program, promoted under the Starlift name, will provide key benefits to TMHU dealers, TMHU said in a statement. They include improved order fill rates, extended order cut-off times, multiple warehouse shipping locations, an online, "real time" parts lookup and ordering system, and access to the industry's largest inventory of more than 1.6 million parts.
The statement said the parts program would be available in the US through the 186 Toyota Industrial Equipment dealerships.
SMH president Pat McLaughlin said his company was proud to have been chosen as the program's sole provider.
