Milan, Italy, 13 April 2016 – CEVA Logistics, one of the world’s leading supply chain companies, and Marangoni Commercial & Industrial Tyres, an Italian company specializing in the retreading of industrial, truck and earthmover tyres, have announced a contract spanning more than three years for the transport and distribution of products throughout the country.
Each year the contract runs, CEVA will collect all Marangoni tyres for retreading. These tyres have been pre-selected by Marangoni’s qualified staff from sites around Italy and will be brought to the tyre manufacturer’s northern Italian warehouse in Rovereto. CEVA will distribute both new and regenerated tyres to both retailers and distributors around the country.
“The decision to outsource transport to an external partner is the natural consequence of further developing our company. By appointing CEVA, Marangoni can focus its own resources on the selection of tyres and the sale of its products and services. Logistics is an essential part of our business and we believe CEVA will provide the high level of service we require,” says Brenno Benolglia, Commercial Director of Marangoni Commercial and Industrial Tyres. “CEVA’s reputation for operational excellence and flexibility gives us confidence that we can increase the quality of service to our customers and improve our reliability and speed.”
Adds CEVA’s Vice President Business Development Italy, Gioachino Figlia: “We are honored to count Marangoni among our clients and we are proud to strengthen our presence in the automotive sector following the inauguration of TyreCity. Marangoni will be better able to integrate its transport flows with its production by having reliable and guaranteed service levels combined with full traceability for both its reverse flow logistics and distribution. Our ability to offer agile and creative solutions which match the needs of this important customer will be key to this partnership.”
The Marangoni partnership further underlines CEVA’s role as a global market leader in the automotive industry and further showcases its specialist capabilities in respect of tyre manufacturers.
