Volvo Trucks North America and Mack Trucks have each launched a parts cross-reference feature for the online Select Part Store, making it easier to search for and buy parts online.

The cross-reference feature is integrated into participating dealers’ parts inventories in real time through the Select Part Store.

The tool uses a proprietary database to provide the equivalent part numbers to any heavy-duty truck part a user searches for. The Select Part Store is an e-commerce platform for online parts ordering.

The tool is designed to automatically update part numbers that have been replaced or those that have been superseded by different manufacturers. Users receive notification if a part number has recently changed and are immediately provided with a replacement number.

“Prior to the introduction of the new cross-reference tool, users had to conduct independent, often extensive searches, for equivalent parts and also for updates to part numbers that had recently changed,” said Chris Buss, Volvo manager of aftermarket service marketing. “This new feature will significantly reduce the difficulty in locating part numbers and further enhance the ease of using Select Part Store for online parts purchasing.”
