Keeping Your Supply Chain Running

Keeping Your Supply Chain Running

During the COVID-19 pandemic, our highest priority remains the safety and wellbeing of our staff, customers, and business partners. But it’s also vitally important that CEVA Logistics enables its customers’ businesses to continue operating as effectively and efficiently as possible.

Lately, various countries have started to open up the lock-down, allowing businesses to start again under strict sanitizing requirements. Within CEVA Logistics’ Crisis Management Plan we have introduced the next step of de-confinement and have slowly started to bring employees back to work to the office, (including sites and warehouses). Our priority is to keep employees healthy and safe, as such, we have been planning resource requirements for workplaces but also training on how to conduct themselves at work and whilst commuting.   

We will continue to monitor the situations daily and review the operational status. The appointed central points of contact for escalations allows us redeploy resources from other business areas where necessary. We are confident that our approach will enable us to keep our finger on the pulse of the daily business, communicate quickly and effectively, and react swiftly to changing scenarios.

In this extremely challenging logistics landscape, CEVA Logistics is working hard to circumvent pinch-points with viable service alternatives – such as air charters - that will enable its customers throughout the world to keep the global economy moving. CEVA Logistics will continue to leverage its global network, its expert and hardworking workforce, its preferential carrier relationships and its innovation to support customers like you through the difficult months ahead. 

Whatever your problems, CEVA Logistics stands with you to help resolve them.


Every day the 110, 000 employees of the entire CMA CGM Group, including CEVA Logistics, remain committed to maintain our supply chain activity running in every country during the pandemic.

In this unprecedented context, Rodolphe Saadé, Chairman and CEO of CMA CGM Group reasserts the key role of the global Suppy Chain in our actual and future economies and confirmed the Group's commitment to stand with you during this trying time.

Last update: 3 May, 2020



Contract Logistics

Our operations are moderately impacted for the time being. We have been taking measures to mitigate risks and comply by all governmental requirements in our sites. Sanitary measures such as wearing gloves, masks, hand washing, regular sanitizing of equipment and equipment as well social distancing are in place. 
Many countries started or plan to start opening their lock-downs. We are constantly adapting to our customer’s challenges and do our utmost to meet their needs, especially in a context of highly fluctuating volumes. 
The situation is changing fast and we will keep posting regular updates and directly communicate with our customers. If you have any specific requirements, please reach out directly to your CEVA representative. 

Air Freight

After the restriction in international passengers flights, causing a massive drop in belly capacity, many airlines operate passenger aircrafts as cargo carriers. Carriers have cancelled  blocked space agreement and allotments and the capacity constraints have resulted in a steep increase on carrier rates.
Cargo airlines and passenger aircrafts operating as freighters are still allowed to operate, although occasionally backlogs may appear due to limited staff and constrained working time. Where available, CEVA is offering on some short/midrange lanes (i.e. Latin America) trucking options as an alternative to the high airfreight rates.
CEVA gateways and stations are continuing to operate in all countries while ensuring safety measures to protect our employees.
If you have any specific requirements, please reach out directly to your CEVA representative. 

Ocean Freight

Our ocean freight operations are fully functional. We continue to operate normally in most of our locations, yet backlogs appear in some ports due to limited port staff, reduced working time, blank sailings and delays for custom clearance
Although some seaports have reduced sailing or have reduced operating hours, overall ocean freight operations remain under control. 
If you have any specific requirements, please reach out directly to your CEVA representative. 

Ground Transport

Road transport is running normally in most of our locations. Border restrictions causes some delay mainly in Africa. For more information on border crossing delays in Europe please visit

If you have any specific requirements, please reach out directly to your CEVA representative.
