CEVA Logistics strengthens presence in Central Asia

[ October 22, 2021   //   ]

Further extending its responsive logistics services in Central Asia, CEVA Logistics announced the opening of a new office in Tashkent, Uzbekistan. The company’s increased operations will focus on Uzbekistan’s multi-modal customers.

Being a land-locked country, Uzbekistan presents huge potential for the growth of multi-modal transportation networks, a key target for the company’s local team experienced in delivering leading ground, rail and air solutions. The CEVA Logistics team in Tashkent will report to country manager Behzod Yunusaliyev.

CEVA Logistics will focus its efforts around the predominantly export-driven portions of the Uzbek economy, offering seamless transport services to a wide range of industries and commodities, such as mineral fertilizers, cotton, cotton yarn, fabric, vegetables and dried fruits. Uzbekistan joined the CIS Free Trade Zone Agreement in 2014 and the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) as an observer in 2020.

Says Bruno Plantaz, Managing Director, IMEA, CEVA Logistics, “As we continue to accelerate our growth globally, key markets like Africa and Central Asia offer significant opportunities to companies with CEVA’s scale and service offerings. Uzbekistan in particular has numerous industries looking for a high quality of service, seamless end-to-end solutions and global capabilities. At CEVA, we think global and act local, so our team is ready to deliver the responsive logistics solutions our customers need.”
