CEVA Logistics says it has delivered significant additional volumes on behalf of numerous customers around the world to help its customers through the Covid-19 crisis.
Air, air charter, ocean freight, ground transport and rail freight have all been deployed to ensure that shipments can be delivered in spite of the operational challenges created by the global pandemic, according to CEVA.
In North America, CEVA Logistics is handling the distribution for one of the medical technology companies appointed by the US Government to manufacture and supply Covid-19 test kits.
The CEVA Logistics US freight management team has leveraged its wide expertise in expedited ground, critical airfreight and final mile deliveries to ensure these vital shipments reach hot spots at hospitals and laboratories across the country. This has included areas such as New Jersey, Seattle and Chicago.
In the United Kingdom, the CMA CGM-owned company is working with two other firms to build a server farm in south-east England which will host 200-250 3D printers for personal protection equipment. This week the 3D printers will start making protection visors and CEVA will manage the infrastructure and logistics which includes assembly of the visors, ready to despatch and deliver to hospitals across the region.
CEVA Logistics added that it continued to supply services for the community, guaranteeing deliveries of hundreds of vital parcels a day to supermarkets, hospitals and pharmacies.
Mathieu Friedberg, Chief Executive Officer of CEVA Logistics, commented, "Keeping frontline services operating in this global time of crisis is our duty and a team challenge between CEVA Logistics and its partners."
