USN-Centuri is the distribution organization of Kwik-fit in the Netherlands and Belgium. It distributes fast moving replacement parts for automobiles directly or through its own outlets. USN-Centuri has a central warehouse and 31 regional distribution centers.

Opportunities
USN and Centuri were separate, independent companies. USN was the central warehouse supplying Centuri and the bigger outlets and customers.
