San Diego, Calif., 26 August, 2014 – CEVA Logistics, one of the world’s leading supply chain management companies, today announced plans to expand its presence in the San Diego market with a new Freight Management and Logistics facility totaling 125,000 sq. ft. (11,612 sqm.) and 23 dock doors.
The new facility will be the largest Freight Management and Logistics facility serving the San Diego market and represents the largest new warehouse agreement completed in central San Diego in the past five years. It will combine two current CEVA operations – a customer-dedicated facility presently based in Poway, CA, and the company’s current Freight Management operation, which is located in the same office park as the new facility in Mission Trails Industrial Park, 7411 Goen Place, Suite B&C, San Diego, CA 92120, near the San Diego International Airport and all major road arteries in the area.
This announcement follows CEVA’s recent expansion of its Los Angeles (LAX)/Torrance freight management operation, underscoring its momentum in the Southern California market. One of the largest operations in CEVA’s global network, the company’s LAX/Torrance station now comprises three facilities totaling more than one million sq. ft. (92,903 sqm.) and 170 dock doors.
“Our goal for our San Diego operations is to bring innovation and unparalleled knowledge of our customers’ business needs to bear on their total supply chain requirements, including transborder solutions such as customs brokerage and cross-docking on both sides of the border,” said Rick Goldenstein, District Manager for CEVA in San Diego.
Goldenstein stated that CEVA had outgrown its Poway contract logistics location, as business there had more than doubled in the past several years and demand for CEVA’s Freight Management Home Delivery services in the San Diego market had grown substantially as well, exceeding 100,000 deliveries per year. CEVA’s extensive Home Delivery network provides a dedicated end-to-end network solution incorporating line haul and final mile services with flexible delivery options for heavy, bulky items – with the goal of providing a best-in-class in-home delivery experience for consumers. Deliveries include home spas, white glove electronics deliveries and specialized appliance delivery and installation.
CEVA provides the complete range of supply chain services in San Diego with local market knowhow – including comprehensive freight management, contract logistics, transborder services, customs brokerage and more.
Additional San Diego area cross-border services
CEVA is the only global freight forwarder with complete warehouse, logistics and transportation services on both sides of the Otay Mesa border near San Diego. The company also has a new Vendor Fulfillment Center located in the heart of Tijuana, Mexico’s Maquiladora industry.
