15 Years of TRP
From 340 to more than 60,000 articles
Within the framework of the ‘One Stop Shop’ strategy, in which the haulier can find everything for his entire fleet at one location, PACCAR Parts introduced its Truck and Trailer Parts programme (TRP) in 1994. In the last fifteen years, this programme has expanded into the most professional and market leading range of universal parts for all makes of trucks and trailers. Also, the TRP Programme offers a wide range of workshop requisites.
That PACCAR PARTS clearly fills a need with TRP is obvious from the fast growth the product portfolio has gone through.
In 1994, the range of products consisted of 340 items, solely for repair and maintenance of trailers. In 1998, a wide range of workshop requisites (1,400 items) was added, including – amongst others – tools and lubricants. In 2001, the product offering was extended with a complete range of universal parts for trucks of all makes, including air bellows, fifth wheels and brake parts. After its successful introduction in the Dutch market in 1994, the TRP programme was introduced in the United Kingdom. Now the programme is available at every DAF dealer all over Europe.
More than 60.000 lines
At the moment, the PACCAR PARTS TRP-program consists of more than 60,000 items, among which are parts for trailer axles of all makes and products from renowned brands. The portfolio is divided in no less than 15 product groups and can be found in a digital catalogue on www.daf.com/trp. Thanks to an ingenious search function, the necessary parts can be found quickly by typing in the brand and the product group. The TRP catalogue is also available in a printed version. It’s one of the most extensive catalogues for universal parts and accessories in the truck market. And just like the TRP products, the TRP catalogue is exclusively available at the DAF dealer.
“The TRP programme supports hauliers in further increasing their efficiency”, says Tom Clevinger, Managing Director, PACCAR PARTS Europe. “And this is very important, especially in these economically challenging times. Parts for all truck makes and trailers, as well as a wide range of workshop requisites can be found at one location – the DAF dealer – at competitive price levels. This not only leads to more efficiency, but also offers possibilities for cost reduction. And because the TRP-programme is completely integrated into the DAF and PACCAR PARTS systems, the TRP programme benefits from the same service levels as the original DAF and PACCAR parts, also in terms of quality, warranty and availability. PACCAR PARTS Europe offers a market leading service level of 98%, which means that almost all parts are immediately available for delivery to the dealer.”
