CEVA expands relationship with Mercedes-Benz in Spain

[ November 18, 2016   //   ]

CEVA Logistics, one of the world’s leading supply chain management companies, has expanded its relationship with Mercedes-Benz, a member of the Daimler Group, at the automotive manufacturer’s facility in Vitoria, Spain.

Mercedes-Benz has been working with CEVA in Iberia since 2012, alongside a number of other European countries including Italy, Germany and UK, as well as México and Australia.

CEVA’s collaboration with Mercedes-Benz at the Vitoria production center was cemented in February 2016, after winning a competitive tender to handle metal products, and provide logistics services to supply production lines with the individual parts required to assemble every vehicle. Following an additional tender process this autumn, CEVA has now added a range of new secondary flow supply services to the production lines.

CEVA’s service reliability and experience in the automotive sector, combined with its commitment to offering solutions adapted to its customers’ needs, were key factors in Mercedes-Benz’s decision to extend its relationship with CEVA. CEVA has a strong understanding of Mercedes-Benz’s needs and has proven its operational capabilities and efficiency in optimizing the car manufacturer’s supply chain in Spain.

Marco Galbusera, Managing Director of CEVA in Iberia, states: “It’s a great honor that Mercedes-Benz has affirmed their trust in CEVA through the addition of these new services. During our four-year collaboration in Iberia we have been able to offer them a consistently high standard of service in line with the solutions we offer in other locations. This new contract further enhances our relationship as their logistics partner of choice, and highlights the customer’s satisfaction with performance at its production center at Vitoria.”
