PartsRiver has announced PartsRiver.com - a one-stop online marketplace of heavy duty truck parts which, says company CEO Sherif Danish, "is the first truck parts marketplace of its kind."
Since its founding in 1999, PartsRiver has helped many large Fortune 500 fleets and OEMs to optimize their part purchasing process.
In making the announcement at last week's Annual Technology & Maintenance Council meeting in Nashville, TN, he said PartsRiver.com provides e-Commerce functionality for both parts buyers and sellers, along with progressive services such as remanufactured alternatives, superseded parts, external sellers, request for proposals and availability from local sellers.
He pointed out that PartsRiver is in advanced discussions with Fleet Maintenance Magazine to power its heavy duty truck parts marketplace.
"PartsRiver is able to leverage its parts database of more than 9 million parts and cross references built over 12 years of helping major fleets and OEs manage parts," said Danish. "We have developed proprietary search technology and built a very robust e-Commerce platform to offer a general marketplace, as well as individual e-Stores.
"There is increasing demand for a comprehensive online solution and we are very pleased to release PartsRiver.com," he said.
Part buyers can find and buy from local suppliers or purchase parts directly from multiple sellers nationwide. PartsRiver.com manages the orders, payment processing, shipping notifications and order tracking.
Sellers have multiple ways of reaching the market. They can list their company and parts in the general marketplace, have an e-Store, receive RFQs and be listed as a local seller, explained Danish. Both buyers and sellers can manage their accounts using the marketplace portal.
"Customer service will be the most important part of PartsRiver.com," he added. "There will always be someone available to talk to a buyer or a seller 24/7."
