Madrid, 1 February, 2018 – CEVA Logistics, one of the world’s largest supply chain management companies, has opened a new multiuser warehouse in central Spain.
The new site is located at Alovera, an industrial area, 50 km north east of Madrid. The facilities comprise 16,300 sqm, in total with 400 sqm office facilities, and almost 16,000 sqm of warehousing space, and will eventually contain the operations of several customers. Expert teams, experienced in operating multi-user warehouses have already been moved into Alovera to provide customers with the highest service standards. It's location next to the A-2 motorway and close to the A-1 make it easy for customer goods deliveries and dispatch.
CEVA already has a number of other multiuser centers in Spain, including at Subirats, in Catalonia, and in the Ontigola area south area of Madrid. Over their years of operation multiuser facilities have proven the benefits of these kinds of warehouses to CEVA customers through synergies, flexibility, better handling peak seasons and the operational knowledge of the staff employed there.
The opening of this new multiuser warehouse is a key part of CEVA's growth strategy across Iberia. It is also the first step of a strategic process of positioning CEVA in the area north of Madrid, where previously it had no presence and will enable the company to expand its plan to continue expanding in the near future. Its easy connections to the Spanish motorway network provide simple connections to both Madrid and Barcelona. The operations of an existing customer have already been successfully implemented at the new Alovera site, and the future locating of existing and new customers is well under way.
Marco Galbusera, Managing Director of CEVA in Iberia, said: “I am very excited about the opening of this third multiuser warehouse. We had been waiting for the perfect opportunity to expand our capabilities to offer excellence, synergies and competitive advantages to our customers and the north of Madrid was the key to this because of its strategic geographic position. This new site highlights our commitment to the Spanish market and we expect to continue the expansion over the coming years.”
