CEVA launches medical equipment installation arm in India

CEVA Logistics has launched a specialist installation service for large-scale medical equipment in India.

In an expansion of its global healthcare capabilities, CEVA is using its own dedicated team of engineers and technicians for the new service.

CEVA’s expert team will be responsible for unpacking, installing and setting up equipment such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanners, cath labs, digital radiography machines and computerised tomography (CT) scanners on behalf of a number of global manufacturers.

Known as factory installations, these can involve a wide range of weights and pieces. An MRI scanner comprises a total of 26 boxes weighing between 18-20 tonnes with a single magnet weighing eight tonnes.

Akash Agarwal, director business development India and head of freight management sales, India, Middle East, Africa & Turkey, CEVA Logistics, said: “Cutting-edge medical machinery requires specialist handling and installation, a complex and technical process.

“As our clients are increasingly relying on our know-how in this regard, CEVA Logistics decided to bring its healthcare logistics expertise to the next level by setting up a dedicated team of medical equipment installation specialists.”

Initially based in Mumbai, the team will also work on Indian installations in Pune, Nagpur, Ahmedabad and Belgaum, before being gradually expanded across CEVA Logistics’ network.
