29.09.2017 / 11:02

Melbourne, Australia, 29 September, 2017 – CEVA Logistics, one of the world’s largest supply chain management companies is celebrating two birthdays this month in Australia. The first marks ten years of operations as CEVA Logistics and the second is the first anniversary of the opening of its Victoria Supersite at Truganina.

In Australia, and around the world, CEVA has a strong foundation built on the history of TNT and Eagle Global Logistics who merged to become CEVA in August 2007. Thomas Nationwide Transport (TNT) was founded in Australia in 1946.

CEVA is celebrating this pair of milestone achievements with customers and staff across the country and the Australia & New Zealand cluster kicks off its festivities with a staff event at Truganina hosted by the Managing Director of Australia and New Zealand, Carlos Velez Rodriguez.

By the end of 2017, the Supersite itself will have transformed into the Trugnanina Campus comprising of eight individual facilities offering a cumulative square meterage of approximately 300,000 – almost double the facility size of the initial build which was commissioned in June 2016. More than 200 people now work across the facilities within it which handle a variety of customers for Vehicle Logistics, Contract Logistics and Freight Management in such diverse, vertical markets as automotive spare parts, shoes, snacks for petrol stations and telecommunications products. The Truganina campus is an exciting addition to the 60 plus facilities which CEVA currently operates from across Australia and New Zealand.

"We are delighted to be able to celebrate two landmark achievements at the same time with our colleagues and customers", says Velez Rodriguez. "I'd particularly like to pay tribute to our staff, be they working at this site or others in the Australia & New Zealand cluster, for their dedication and hard work in making this company the success it is today. A number of them have been with us for many more than the ten years we are marking today and we salute them all".
