"Amazon.com is a known, trusted online retailer that will help us connect with customers on a whole new level," said Patti Corso, e-commerce manager, Navistar Parts. "Navistar Parts was the first truck and bus original equipment manufacturer (OEM) to sell truck and bus parts online and this partnership with Amazon.com extends our reach and offers a customer-focused purchasing experience."
