Ashby-de-la Zouch, UK, 27 September, 2012 – CEVA Logistics, one of the world’s leading supply chain management companies, has today announced the launch of a brand new Less-than-Container Load (LCL) consolidation service from the UK to Dubai.
The weekly service will sail from CEVA’s Consolidation Freight Station (CFS) in Tamworth, to our CEVA CFS in the Jebel Ali Free Zone, Dubai in our own LCL consolidated containers. By consolidating freight in Tamworth, a central UK town, CEVA links over 10 receiving locations, reduces inland transportation cost and overall transit time. With dedicated teams overseeing all aspects of the shipment, from pick up to sailing, customers are assured of CEVA’s high service levels from the moment their freight is collected.
With the entire process under CEVA’s control, customers benefit from faster freight availability in Dubai in addition to lower cost and handling options due to the port’s location in the Free Zone. With Dubai acting as a key hub for the entire Middle East region, CEVA is ideally placed to add to its existing portfolio of services for the import and export markets there.
Greg Scott, CEVA’s Global LCL Director said: “We are constantly looking at how we can provide even quicker and more efficient services for our customers as part of our growing LCL network. The Middle East region is a growing market for CEVA especially in Oceanfreight. This new consolidation service from the UK to Dubai is just one example of how we can deliver cost and time benefits by capitalizing on our integrated Freight Management network and investment strategies within the region.”
CEVA already operates LCL services to Dubai from Houston and New York, U.S., Hamburg, Germany and Milan, Italy with further services planned from key Asia Pacific locations in the near future.
