PartsRiver introduces trucking-specific parts search engine

Updated Oct 19, 2011

PartsRiver has introduced a Part Search online search engine dedicated to trucking industry parts. The goal is to create a consumer-style Google Map-based search engine that will allow truck fleets, dealers and repair shops to quickly track down parts in a local area, significantly cutting down on phone time while giving fleet managers and technicians multiple options in terms of price and proximity, says Sherif Danish, chief executive officer for PartsRiver.

PartsRiver’s database uses OEM and VRMS codes to expedite the search process of more than 8 million truck parts contained in a database the company says it has spent more than 10 years building. A free account allows users to enter their address to narrow a search down to the closest parts dealers. An enhanced version, available for $99 per month per user, offers full access to alternate parts in the area as well as VMRS classification codes to assist in warranty claims.

PartsRiver Parts Search is now live at The company is holding a giveaway for a free iPad2 and a free six-month subscription to Parts Search to celebrate the launch of the search engine.
