The Independent Automotive Aftermarket Federation (IAAF) Annual Awards & Dinner 2018 has been hailed as one of the largest of its kind in many years, as it once again welcomed key aftermarket professionals to celebrate another successful year of business, growth and innovation.
MTS Exhausts Systems, distributed in the UK by Opera Automotive, has become the latest company to invest in electronic trading with motor factors as part of its wider plans to grow the brand in the UK automotive aftermarket.
Communicating with suppliers electrontically has fast become the norm for modern parts distribution. Including the exchange of messages such as stock enquiries and ordering, order acknowledgements, dispatch notes and invoices, it offers motor factors and suppliers valuable savings in time and resource. “Electronic trading is essential if motor factors are to ensure a fast, efficient delivery service,” says Mark Broughton, director of UAN affiliate Total Motor Factors, Portsmouth.
PACT, the electronic trading initiative, has renewed its agreement with Groupauto’s G-Net electronic trading solution for a further four years, enabling approved suppliers and Group Auto Members to trade and communicate more effectively.
