CEVA unveils new facility in Malaysia
Published: Dec 02, 2008
Malaysia - CEVA Logistics has unveiled a new facility in line with their expansion plan to support its growing operations. The facility is set to commence operations next year.
The 350,000 sq feet distribution centre in Bukit Jelutong, located near Shah Alam, will officially open in early 2009.
When fully operational, the facility is poised to be the hub for domestic inventory management and support CEVA's growth plans as it increases its presence in the region.
John Pattullo, group CEO of CEVA said that despite the global financial crisis, CEVA's contract logistics business is not driven by the economic cycle.
"Companies will often outsource their logistics needs in difficult times. We believe both global and [Malaysia] contract logistics market will grow by 6% to 7%," he said.
"We have been successful following our operational model of having multi-user facilities and building the facilities first before seeking customers. We will continue to do that," Pattullo continued.
The facility is set to double CEVA Malaysia's business by 2010 with growth focus on technology, tires, industrial, and retail/ consumer segments and positions CEVA as a leading player in freight management and contract logistics services.
Michael Yip, MD of CEVA Malaysia said the new facility would need an extra 100 workers when operational next year. Currently, CEVA Malaysia has about 1,200 employees."We have been able to achieve a great deal over the past year in the region." commented Vittorio Favati, president for CEVA Asia Pacific. "Our commitment to excellence stems from a belief that customers are not satisfied with the current performance of 3PLs managing their supply chains. We are confident of enacting change and creating global best practices that our industry has not achieved," said Favati.
