MARATHON TO DISTRIBUTE WAI COMPONENTS

Independent distributor Marathon Warehouse Distribution has signed a deal with component manufacturer WAI Global to stock and deliver its range which includes starters, alternators and window regulators among other items.  

Marathon offers a  same-day service, which can reach around 85 percent of the UK’s population.

WAI customer stock orders will continue to be supplied through the company’s Bognor Regis warehouse on a next day delivery service, but with the implementation of the same day service, the plan is to bring WAI closer to the motor factor and ensure immediate access to ‘grey tail’ products.

Colin Fisher and Richard Welland

Richard Welland, WAI Global UK Managing Director, said: “There’s no denying the UK automotive aftermarket is changing at an alarming rate. In the past few years, we have worked to bring the WAI brand closer to motor factors and garages, meeting their demand for an almost instant parts supply.

Colin Fisher, Marathon Warehouse Distribution Sales and Marketing Director, said: “The ambition of WAI matches our own and we’re delighted to be stocking the widest range of WAI products and supplying the brand to motor factors on a frequent same day basis. We’re an independent national warehouse distributor and our logistics platform has to be able to offer motor factor customers a full range of high quality products both quickly and efficiently.”
