Feb. 13, 2012

While Pep Boys–Manny, Moe & Jack awaits the completion of its sale to The Gores Group, it has selected Distribution Service Technologies Inc. (DST) as its exclusive 24/7 online order placement service provider for Pep Express.

Pep Express (, the commercial division of Pep Boys, provides fast delivery of parts, tires, tools, shop equipment and additional merchandise to businesses across the country. With the DST product, which features its TurboParts e-commerce engine, Pep Express is now the only parts supplier to offer tires for “hot shot” delivery through a website that includes photographs for tread pattern matching, according to Pep Boys.

“DST presented Pep Boys with a comprehensive plan that enables us to deliver an eCommerce solution that encourages full usage throughout our organization," says Chris McErlane, assistant vice president for the commercial division.

“TurboParts will seamlessly enhance Pep Boys’ current eCommerce capabilities, increase supply chain efficiency and help ensure the continued growth and success for Pep Boys and its commercial customers,” adds John Sidlauskas, DST's vice president of sales.
