Bangkok, Thailand, 4 August, 2011 – CEVA Logistics, a leading global supply chain management company, has renewed its partnership with Michelin Thailand, for a further three years.
CEVA will continue to manage the customer’s Thailand logistics operations, handling the inbound movement of tires from Michelin’s production plants into warehouse facilities in three main locations across Thailand; Laemchabang, Nongkea and Nongree. As part of its integrated solution for Michelin, CEVA ensures that the tires and accessories are delivered, handled and presented correctly to meet Michelin’s service level requirements.
CEVA manages third-party sub-contractors and transport providers, as well as transportation planning and delivery control activities. In addition, CEVA provides Network Engineering, full KPI reporting and POD management to ensure that Michelin’s targets are met. The wide range of services offered to the customer are underpinned by CEVA’s advanced IT solutions, which provide Michelin with visibility throughout the supply chain, from point of collection to point of delivery. Using the same processes, CEVA will also manage the reverse logistics for Michelin.
CEVA also provides Michelin with services for cross-border transportation to and from Malaysia and focuses on continuous value creation in transportation, reducing cost and CO2 emissions through load consolidation and effective route planning.
Dean Thorpe, Managing Director of CEVA in Thailand, commented: “We have worked in partnership with Michelin for the last seven years to develop and deliver an efficient and optimal operation. With the mutual support and understanding which has developed between our two organizations, we are confident that we will continue to manage this key part of their supply chain with optimum efficiency.
