Shanghai, 17 November 2008 - CEVA Logistics, a leading global supply chain management company, was recently awarded by the China Supply Chain Council for the best third party logistics (3PL) supply chain provider in China during the 2008 CHaINA event in Shanghai. This is a recognition award for CEVA's successful operations with Eaton Corporation throughout China and the Asia Pacific region. After a rigorous selection and nomination process, the panel of 12 industry experts representing Chaina selected CEVA over other leading nominees, after a successful demonstration of the magnitude, importance and clarity of the benefits to CEVA's customer - Eaton's operations within China.
In April 2007, CEVA was selected as the Lead Logistics Provider (LLP) for Eaton in the Asia Pacific region. Under this LLP program in China, some of its achievements include the successful rollout of CEVA ground network in mainland China for transportation between factories, Eaton entities, and its end-customers; the global freight solutions to and from China; and the various warehouse solutions implemented in Shanghai and Jining cities, as well as Hong Kong. In addition to its systematic control of cost and key performance indicators (KPIs), the LLP program allows Eaton to grow ambitiously in Asia Pacific, while maintaining a flexible supply chain operation. The LLP solution is supported by a dedicated global account management team and its own engineering capabilities. CEVA currently supports the integration of various companies which Eaton has acquired, and leads supply chain integration studies including 26 sites across Asia.
Commenting on the award, Stuart Harrison, Eaton Vice President - Supply Chain Management & Operational Excellence, Asia Pacific said, "We entrusted CEVA as our LLP in the region because the company has significant resources and capabilities in Asia - predominantly in China. CEVA provides us with unique end-to-end visibility through its Matrix IT system and related Asia Pacific control tower functionality in Singapore, which serves as the nerve center for this operation. We thank CEVA for their hard work and look forward to expanding our relationship in China and beyond."
Ditlev Blicher, CEVA Vice President for North Asia added, "This award demonstrates our team's tireless efforts and commitment to operational excellence in China. It is an honor to be recognized by such a distinguished panel of experts in China."
