CEVA strengthens Oceanfreight market position
Hoofddorp, the Netherlands, 1 December 2011 – CEVA Logistics, a leading global non-asset based supply chain management company, today announced the continued growth of its Less-than-Container Load (LCL) consolidation services.
Driven by its relentless focus on developing and improving services to provide the best offering in the Oceanfreight market, and building on the success of the Hamburg to New York City service which was launched in September, CEVA has introduced an additional 30 new consolidation services worldwide. With strategically located consolidation points in America, Europe, the Middle East and Asia Pacific, new offerings include: Los Angeles to Shanghai, Singapore, Hong Kong, Sydney and Melbourne; Hamburg to Shanghai, Singapore and Dubai; Shanghai to Dallas, Singapore and Hamburg, and Nhava Sheva, India to New York.
Greg Scott, CEVA’s Global LCL Director, said: “With the addition of these new services, we have almost tripled the number of consolidation offerings for our customers. With Ocean growth as a major focus for our business, it’s essential that we continue to identify opportunities to bring new solutions, such as this, to the market. These new LCL services mean our customers benefit from improved visibility en route and enhanced cargo flows, as well as access to CEVA’s integrated global network which can support their door-to-door transportation needs in house.”
The new CEVA-managed services provide customers with greater choice between LCL, Full-Container Load (FCL) and break-bulk shipments to suit their specific needs, while being confident of receiving the same high levels of service from CEVA. CEVA’s centralized pricing capability also means improvements in quote response times.
CEVA’s consolidation hubs are located in New York City, Miami and Los Angeles in the U.S.; Hamburg, Germany, Dubai, UAE and Antwerp, Belgium in Europe and the Middle East and Singapore and Hong Kong in Asia Pacific.
