06 / 08 / 2012
CEVA Logistics has been appointed by Honda of the UK Manufacturing (HUM) to manage its European inbound logistics operation. The three-year contract coincides with HUM’s production re-start, which began this month.
CEVA Ground Europe, based in Antwerp, will manage supplier collections from over 40 European locations transporting parts to HUM’s production plant in Swindon (UK). This will involve managing the availability and movement of parts in the correct format to meet HUM’s build program; management of third-party hauliers and suppliers, and deliveries to Swindon. It incorporates carrier management, transportation planning and execution as well as freight audit service modules.
Dave Taylor from HUM said: “Our key objective was to create a more efficient supply chain. In achieving this, we have reduced costs, increased flexibility and reduced overall emissions. CEVA was awarded the contract due to its experience, resources, open minded approach and of course cost competitiveness”.
