Toyota Australia invests $100M to trim new-car delivery times

Toyota Australia has taken the extra-ordinary step of transforming its former car-assembly site in Melbourne into a $100 million pre-delivery mega centre that aims to trim delivery times for new vehicles. Preparing a new car ahead of customer handover typically takes dealerships hours, days, or weeks depending on the options fitted to each vehicle. However, with the pre-delivery process now on an industrial scale, Toyota Australia can put the finishing touches on up to 270 vehicles a day – one car every two minutes.
