WILLEBROEK, Belgium, June 23 - CEVA Logistics, one of the leading supply chain companies in the world, has announced that it has signed a new agreement with Carrefour Belgium. The contract scope includes the existing operations in Machelen (Belgium) and an additional site that is currently managed by another 3rd party operator. With this contract all non-food logistics (from flat-pack and hanging garments to personal care and kitchen & table ware) operations of Carrefour in Belgium will be operated by CEVA.
The relationship between CEVA and Carrefour in Belgium dates back to 1996, when the joint-venture CEVA Nopri Logistics was established. Over the last 12 years this organisation has been very effective in servicing Carrefour's requirements in the country. The new agreement will mark the end of this Joint Venture, since the entity will become a wholly owned subsidiary of CEVA Contract Logistics Belgium.
"As a progressive company we constantly try to improve our operations and operational processes. This new set-up offers us the benefit of a single provider for all our non-food logistics in Belgium, which makes it easier for all parties involved. Our choice for CEVA underlines the quality of cooperation we have had over the years and the confidence we have for the years to come. We are operating in a very dynamic market and this requires a strong partnership to adapt our logistics to the changing demands," says Olivier Perin, Supply Chain Director for Carrefour Belgium.
This new contract is another step in the development of CEVA's Retail & Consumer Goods business that is well established in many countries in Europe, but also on other continents. "We are proud to be awarded a broader responsibility in the Carrefour supply chain activities and we are keen to deploy our best practices in this broader scope. We are confident that we can provide our new colleagues a professional place to work and offer them career opportunities within our expanding company," says Onno Meij, Managing Director for CEVA Logistics Benelux.
