Shipping News Feature

WORLDWIDE – In a week which saw it win the Airfreight Forwarder of the Year award at the Supply Chain Asia Logistics Awards (SCALA), logistics group CEVA has announced the continued growth of its less than container load (LCL) consolidation services. The company was a finalist in several categories at the Shanghai ceremony and it is the ocean freight market which CEVA has turned its attention to this week with the introduction of thirty new LCL services.

With strategically located consolidation points in America, Europe, the Middle East and Asia Pacific, new offerings include: Los Angeles to Shanghai, Singapore, Hong Kong, Sydney and Melbourne; Hamburg to Shanghai, Singapore and Dubai; Shanghai to Dallas, Singapore and Hamburg, and Nhava Sheva, India to New York and the development follows on from the company’s successful introduction in September of a Hamburg to New York consolidation.

The new routes mean CEVA can offer a choice between LCL, Full-Container Load (FCL) and break-bulk shipments to suit their specific needs prompting Greg Scott, CEVA’s Global LCL Director, to say:

“With the addition of these new services, we have almost tripled the number of consolidation offerings for our customers. With Ocean growth as a major focus for our business, it’s essential that we continue to identify opportunities to bring new solutions, such as this, to the market. These new LCL services mean our customers benefit from improved visibility en route and enhanced cargo flows, as well as access to CEVA’s integrated global network which can support their door-to-door transportation needs in house.”

CEVA’s consolidation hubs are located in New York City, Miami and Los Angeles in the U.S.; Hamburg, Germany, Dubai, UAE and Antwerp, Belgium in Europe and the Middle East and Singapore and Hong Kong in Asia Pacific.
