These days, you can order just about anything from the online retail giant Amazon.com: books, music, dish towels, truck parts ... truck parts?
Yes, indeed. Navistar Parts has announced that it now sells truck and bus parts through Amazon's e-commerce platform. Buyers can use Amazon's search capabilities to locate items by type, price, make, and model, as well as view suggestions for products that complement their selection, according to Patti Corso, Navistar Parts' e-commerce manager. They also have their choice of shipping methods (next day, two-day, and ground) and payment options, including Paypal and Amazon.com gift cards.
"Amazon.com is a known, trusted online retailer that will help us connect with customers on a whole new level," Corso says.
Navistar Parts' Partsmart collection includes more than 700,000 parts for all makes of medium- and heavy-duty trucks. They can be purchased online at www.amazon.com/Partsmart as well as at www.partsmartparts.com.
