SAO PAULO, February 12 - The Contract Logistics Division of CEVA Logistics will invest € 6 million in the first half of this year in an addition to its main Distribution Center (DC), in JundiaÌ, in the state of Sao Paulo. This new addition will double the size of the location, giving it 25 thousand square meters for storing electronics, consumer goods, and office supplies.
At the Jundiaí DC, CEVA carries out reception, storage, shipping, and transport management activities for customers like Nivea, ABN Amro, and Philips. Currently, the site has a 10 thousand pallet position capacity; following the addition that number will grow 110%.
Among the special services the company offers at the site are inventory management systems, like WMS Click, and other programs designed for the general storage regime. The DC will meet the requirements for TAPA certification, which was created for the technology industry with the aim of promoting security throughout the supply chain. In 2007, inventory for one of the customers using the DC had an accuracy rate of 99.86%, thanks to the management model used by the company.
Paulo Franceschini, Business Development Director for CEVA Logistics South America, highlighted the importance of the company's investment. "CEVA has set a growth target of 10% for 2008 and in order to reach this number, the company needs to offer the infrastructure and solutions for increasing business possibilities to our current and future customers," he pointed out.
The customers served by the DC in JundiaÌ were responsible for 3% of CEVA's turnover for 2007. Once the space has been remodeled, the company expects to leverage this number by 6%.
