Ashby-de-la-Zouch, UK, 25 June, 2014 – CEVA Logistics, one of the world’s leading supply chain management companies, is delighted to announce that it has won a new five year contract with REHAU, one of the UK’s largest producers of PVC-U window and door profiles.
Under the new multi million dollar contract, CEVA will manage REHAU’s new 12,263 sq m warehouse at Manor Point in Runcorn, Cheshire in addition to providing a dedicated road transport solution across the UK.
CEVA helped to design the new warehouse by assessing the projected product flows which enables optimum storage capacity for REHAU’s products and components. New vehicles have also been procured for the transport operation in REHAU’s stylish new livery, which will form part of CEVA’s extensive road transport network.
The warehouse features an eaves height of 12 meters to accommodate the huge volumes of stock and has seven dock level loading doors and four drive-in doors to make vehicle loading fast and efficient.
REHAU’s UK Chief Executive Martin Hitchin comments: “CEVA and REHAU share a common appreciation of continuous improvement and partnerships. We are therefore delighted to partner with CEVA – who are already delivering high quality supply chain management expertise to our operations.”
Ian Robb, CEVA’s Vice President of Automotive, Industrial and Technology in the UK, comments: “We have engineered our solution to support REHAU’s growth plans, and the partnership approach we have with our customers means that our management team is fully aligned to support such plans. We are delighted to secure this win and look forward to developing our relationship with REHAU even further across the contract term.”
The warehouse operates 24 hours a day, five days a week with a team of over 50 staff. There are currently 830 different REHAU products held in stock with 2,750 different variants. On average, 700 picks are carried out per day by CEVA.
