Marseille, France, 4th November, 2019 – As it further extends its capabilities across Asia, CEVA Logistics has set up a new operation in Sri Lanka officially opening the CEVA Sri Lanka office for business today. With the new set up, CEVA Sri Lanka will service clients in both the island nation and in the Maldives.

From its headquarters in Colombo customers will be offered a full range of multi-modal services including air, ocean, sea-air Customs brokerage and road transportation solutions alongside the benefits of additional services operated within a Free Zone.

CEVA's customers will therefore have direct access to the company's complete range of additional services along with the company's market-leading IT capabilities.

Says Fuat Adoran, CEVA's Executive Vice President IMEA, India, Middle East, Africa: “With our own operations being set up in Sri Lanka we are now able to take our operation in Sri Lanka and the Maldives to the next level. CEVA Logistics’ customers will find we are able to deliver more efficient solutions across a greater range of services. Inbound customers will be able to take advantage of the strong domestic network we can now offer across Sri Lanka while exporters in this rapidly emerging economy will now have wider international access for their shipments.”

CEVA will add greater value to the predominantly export driven Sri Lankan economy, serving industries such as garments & textiles, machinery & electronics amongst others. CEVA enters the market at a time when the country is bidding to position itself as a regional logistics hub, with its strategic location in Asia.
