Characteristics

The strength of our global network with Honda Group

Honda Trading uses more than 30 bases in 20 countries throughout the world to cover tailored distribution routes in every conceivable region, something that Honda would be unable to achieve on its own.

Through our unique network, we supply almost every Honda base in the world with auto parts. We also have an extensive involvement in Honda Group parts procurement.

Total coordination capabilities

We handle overall coordination of trading between our customers and the Honda Group, responding to a variety of customer needs. By acting as intermediaries to link our customers with the Honda Group, Honda Trading contributes to the expansion of customers’ global purchasing capabilities and eliminates the burden of troublesome coordination.

The ability to respond flexibly to new customer needs

Honda Trading will identify and respond flexibly to customers’ future needs, including the strengthening of its networks in regions of Asia and Africa where the expansion of business is expected and by increasing its handling of electrical components and modules in addition to existing parts and products.

Parts

We specialise in imports and exports of automotive parts to support UK level 1 suppliers to Honda of the UK Manufacturing (HUM). The parts division handles a wide variety of products, ranging from nuts and bolts to the higher value items such as catalysts, supplying to all regions within the UK and Ireland.

The majority of the imports are from Japan manufacturers, with goods being shipped via monthly consolidations in order to combine small volumes and provide a cost effective supply route or individual full container loads.

The export section of Parts handles the supply of parts from the UK to regions such as Turkey, Brazil, and Japan. Products exported range from clips to batteries, supporting a range of models produced by Honda globally.

Just In Time Delivery

Acting as a local supplier to HUM, the direct supply department acts as the international supply route for a range of automotive parts from 9 countries, spanning North and South America, as well as many countries within Asia.

With a dedicated warehouse based in Swindon, we deliver parts to HUM on a daily basis, as well as supporting quality and cost elements throughout the supply chain.
Parts handled through the warehouse cover almost every section of the vehicles produced in HUM, such as tyres, gear levers and clutches, to engine blocks and fuel pipes.
