CEVA Augments Container Freight Station Network

CEVA Logistics has nearly doubled its network of owned container freight stations, from 26 to 48 locations, replacing a number of outsourced operations.

It has also switched collections from shippers, as well as freight transfers to its own stations at ports of loading, to its own road vehicle operation, CEVA Ground. The change gives CEVA total control over all less-than-containerload freight shipments from origin in any U.S. ZIP code to its loading facilities at the ports of New York, Miami and Los Angeles. Combined with CEVA's use of road transport instead of rail, the service cuts 14 days from New York-Shanghai transit times, eight days from Atlanta-Singapore, seven days from Los Angeles-Santos, and an average of seven days from all global LCL destinations. Movements from CEVA's 48 warehouses are via an all-motor system, with trucks owned and operated by CEVA. CEVA Ground uses 2,350 vehicles to provide ad hoc services as well as scheduled road feeder operations.
