ASHBY DE LA ZOUCH, 18 April 2008 - Twinings, a leading tea producer, has renewed its logistics contract with CEVA Newsfast. The two companies have been working together since 1990, with CEVA warehousing the Twinings products at its Wellesbourne site for onward distribution to supermarket RDCs (regional distribution centres), wholesalers and retailers.
To mark the occasion, Twinings UK Sales Director Jon Jenkins visited CEVA's multi-user site at Wellesbourne to give CEVA staff a preview of the company's new advertising campaign and its strategy for the future. The campaign, featuring actor Stephen Fry, promotes Twinings' range of coffees, to complement the almost 200 varieties of tea it produces. Mr. Jenkins explained to CEVA staff that their dedication to ensuring an efficient and effective supply chain had made the decision to renew the contract, in a competitive tender, the obvious choice: "We regard CEVA as a partner in our success. We are expanding our range of goods and expect to see significant growth in volumes over the next few years. CEVA's commitment to providing excellent service is vital to that growth."
Wellesbourne, like all 19 Newsfast sites around the UK, is used to warehouse and distribute goods for a variety of different customers using state of the art warehousing and transport planning systems. "This enables us to offer the highest quality service in the most cost-effective manner," explains David Bermingham, CEVA Newsfast Managing Director. "Also, we reduce the number of trucks on the road - and at the RDCs, by consolidating loads and ensuring vehicles are full." CEVA Newsfast's other grocery customers include John West, Wrigleys, Whitworths and Del Monte. It also offers primary consolidation centre facilities to leading multiple retailers Tesco, Somerfield and Asda.
