HOUSTON, Texas 15 May 2008 - CEVA Logistics, one of the leading supply chain management companies in the world, was recently recognized as "Transportation Partner of the Year" by Fujitsu Computer Products of America, Inc. (FCPA). For the second year in a row, CEVA has emerged as the most valued supply chain partner for one of the world's leading suppliers of innovative computer products.
"CEVA has consistently demonstrated the level of performance and personal service necessary to earn this award," said Glenn Wood, senior director, logistics, Fujitsu Computer Products of America, Inc. "Working closely with FCPA, CEVA has developed and executed innovative solutions that provide a higher level of service while removing cost from our model. The fact that CEVA (formerly EGL) maintained service excellence and enhanced our partnership in the midst of their merger with TNT Logistics is particularly impressive."
FCPA's service providers were evaluated in the areas of operational execution, cost reduction initiatives, customer service and technology. CEVA's performance over the measured period earned the highest score since the inception of the award. On May 7, Wood presented CEVA with the award at the world Freight Management Headquarters in Houston, Texas.
"It's an honor to be recognized as Fujitsu Computer Products of America's top logistics provider for the second consecutive year," said Joe Bento, president, global freight management, CEVA. "We have worked hard to differentiate ourselves through flexibility and innovation, but equally important is the reciprocal commitment by FCPA to a partnership that is mutually rewarding. We value the relationship we have with FCPA and look forward to continuing to play a key role in Fujitsu's goals and strategic objectives for the future."
FCPA and CEVA have continually expanded their transportation partnership since it began in 2006. Today, CEVA services nearly every segment of Fujitsu's supply chain, from transportation services including customs brokerage to contract logistics and manages multiple logistics facilities for FCPA in North America.
