Shipping News Feature

SOUTH AFRICA – ITALY – It has been a big couple of weeks for CEVA Logistics, the supply chain design and freight management group. At the tail end of August they signed a new €1.4 million contract with South African mining group Rui Star Trading to handle around 4,600 TEU of chrome ore concentrate on its way to the Far East. About 20,000 tonnes per month of the concentrated ore will be transported into a 100 square metre store in Johannesburg for onward shipment.

This week CEVA renewed the prestigious agreement they have with Honda Logistics Europe NV, part of the Honda Motor Co. group, in a deal worth €6.7 million. CEVA will continue to manage the forwarding of spare parts for all Honda products (cars, motorcycles and power equipment) to the more than 1,500 Honda dealers around Italy.

In addition, for the Honda Power Equipment and Honda Marine divisions, CEVA will handle the Italian network distribution of the extensive range of finished products from two Honda Logistics Europe bases: the central European warehouse in Ghent, Belgium, and the regional Italian warehouse at Colognola ai Colli, near Verona.

Ray Runza, Europe Transport Manager of Honda Logistics Europe NV, said:

"Our partnership with CEVA began in 1998 and for the past 12 years our teams have been operating in an integrated manner, working together to optimize the management of Honda’s operational processes. In these years, CEVA has designed and implemented customized logistics solutions, which ensure efficient and timely delivery with the best quality standards in the automotive sector."
