MARSEILLE, France Oct. 19, 2021 – Further extending its responsive logistics services in Central Asia, CEVA Logistics announced today the opening of a new office in Tashkent, Uzbekistan. The company’s increased operations will focus on Uzbekistan’s multi-modal customers.
Being a land-locked country, Uzbekistan presents huge potential for the growth of multi-modal transportation networks, a key target for the company’s local team experienced in delivering leading ground, rail and air solutions. The CEVA Logistics team in Tashkent will report to country manager Behzod Yunusaliyev.
A wide range of commodities will be handled through Uzbekistan
