Delivery from Hamburg to New York in 11 days
Hoofddorp, the Netherlands, 6 September 2011 – CEVA Logistics, a leading global non-asset based supply chain management company, today expanded its Less-than-Container Load (LCL) consolidation offering with the addition of a new service from Hamburg to New York.
This marks the first of many new LCL solutions scheduled to launch in Q4 2011, and offers faster cargo availability and a lowered risk of U.S. customs holds and other related expenses.
Greg Scott, CEVA’s Global LCL Director, commented: “This new service will not only improve transit times from Germany to the U.S., but it will provide considerable improvement in cargo availability to our customers. It’s one of the many ways we are developing and improving our services to ensure we have the best offering in the oceanfreight market.”
The new service will give customers greater choice between Less-than-Container Load, Full-Container Load and break-bulk shipments in order to suit their specific needs. The new LCL service offers IPI connectivity to 77 locations within the U.S., while door deliveries can also be made through CEVA’s dedicated driver and trucking network.
Greg Scott continued: “This additional service allows us to devise the most suitable and cost effective freight solution for our customers, and the increased flexibility and control over cargo brings greater synchronicity to their supply chain.”
The new service offerings are an integral part of CEVA’s ambition to become a top five ocean forwarder by 2013, building on its existing expertise and global network to deliver even greater benefits and value for its customers.
Additional recently launched services include LCL consolidations from Busan, South Korea to Toronto, Canada and from Kaohsiung, China to Chicago, U.S.
