New facility increases CEVA's footprint in Chicago to over 650,000 square feet (60,000 square meters)
Houston, USA, 21 January, 2015 – CEVA Logistics, one of the world's leading supply chain management companies, has expanded its market presence in Chicago with the opening of a fourth facility.
The company's Chicago operations near O'Hare International Airport (ORD) now encompass four facilities totaling over 650,000 sq. ft. (60,387 sq m) and 115 total dock doors.
The new, 208,406 sq. ft., multi-use logistics facility features state-of-the-art security including a 128-camera CCTV system, gate and access control, and security on duty inside the building on a 24x7 basis. The facility has 30 dock doors and two van ramp doors.
The new facility, located at 1925 Busse Road, Elk Grove Village, IL, is directly adjacent to an existing CEVA location, creating a campus-type environment with opportunities to expand current services in the Chicago market and improve traffic flow in and out of the area.
"We are excited about the opportunity to expand our operations in the dynamic Chicago market," said Bill Stortenbecker, Managing Director of CEVA's Chicago operations. "This new facility enables us to drive growth in our services across the board – our Hub ground network, domestic network, import and export gateway operations, export dock and logistics operations. We have been experiencing significant space constraints in Chicago; with this expansion, we are well-positioned to enhance both our international and domestic business."
CEVA's permanent staff in Chicago now totals approximately 250 people, supplemented by a temporary workforce that scales according to seasonal demand.
Services provided by CEVA in Chicago include air and ground freight forwarding and consolidation, global ocean FCL and LCL, customs brokerage, warehousing, distribution and point of sale projects, residential/home delivery, domestic air freight and expedited services, US domestic distribution and temperature-controlled transport and warehousing for perishables and pharma.
