JAKARTA, Indonesia, November 6, 2008 - CEVA Logistics, a leading global supply chain management company, has invested in three customized Prairie Wagons to further enhance its transportation services to BlueScope Steel Indonesia ("BlueScope") - a manufacturing company that produces zinc/aluminium coated steel and painted steel. With these new trailers, CEVA can now provide improved innovative transportation with enhanced safety features, and increased flexibility and productivity during the loading/unloading of goods.
The Prairie Wagon is a prime mover with a forty-footer trailer and a sliding canopy. This allows the steel coils to be easily loaded by using an overhead crane, thus reducing significant loading time wastage. As it is equipped with Roboracks to stabilize the position of the steel coils, the new equipment is also capable of securely protecting the heavy cargo while in-transit. Each Prairie Wagon can hold a maximum of 32-tons of coils, yet it requires only one operator to manage the entire loading process.
"A key part of BlueScope Steel's philosophy under "OUR BOND" is that "Our Customers Are Our Partners". Our strength lies in working closely with our customers to create value and trust, together with superior products and service. The Prairie Wagon concept that has been supported by CEVA is part of our commitment to relentlessly improve our performance to customers whilst maximising our efforts to improve the Safety of our employees and the working environment", said Andrew Heycott, President Director of PT BlueScope Steel Indonesia.
"With the Prairie Wagons, CEVA Indonesia will now be able to provide a more innovative means of transportation for BlueScope Steel in Indonesia, thus creating added value for our customer and driving our operations excellence further into our Indonesian business," said Rita Boyle, Country General Manager of PT CEVA Logistics Indonesia.
