Ceva Logistics expands warehousing contract with Colgate-Palmolive

LBR Staff Writer Published 18 January 2018

Supply chain management firm Ceva Logistics has expanded its warehousing contract with consumer products firm Colgate-Palmolive in Malaysia.

Under the new three -year deal, Ceva will manage over 140,000ft² of warehousing space with around 14,000 pallet positions to offer distribution and cross border transportation services to customers in Thailand and Singapore.

The deal covers imports and exports with local clearances, as well as valued-added cross-dock service in Singapore.

Ceva will cover home care, personal care and oral care products, which are secured at its Shah Alam facility.

On a daily basis, the company will deconsolidate multiple containers at the facility for onward shipping to both distributors and retailers.

Ceva South East Asia executive vice president Elaine Low said: "The renewal of this prestigious contract is testament to our team's ongoing commitment to Colgate-Palmolive.

“And it's great teamwork which has been the key to our long-term relationship. We really understand their business which enables us to provide continuous improvements in our operations to benefit their business, be that in service innovation or automating the processes involved.”

In November 2015, Ceva opened a new central distribution center (CDC) 2 at Shah Alam.

Near to Kuala Lumpur, the multi-user warehouse was built on the same site at Bukit Jelutong of Shah Alam, where the firm's CDC1 was located.

The facility features 33,000m² of additional warehousing and office space, increasing the total space at the site, including CDC1 and CDC2, to around 67,000m².

With operations in over 160 countries, Ceva provides supply-chain management solutions to the large and medium-size national and multinational companies.
