CEVA Logistics has built a 240-square-meter (about 2,583 square foot) chemical storage area at its multiuser hub in Ontígola, Spain, south of Madrid.
A team of specialized engineers built the area in compliance with all existing rules and requirements relating to the safe storage of chemical products and risk prevention in the workplace, and the completed area was approved by the relevant authorities. The chemical storage area is an independent firefighting area separated from the other storage areas by a brick wall. The zone is equipped with specialist firefighting equipment, including sprinklers and manholes placed in every door to collect any possible spill of product.
“The building of the first chemical storage area for CEVA in Iberia demonstrates our commitment to meet the needs of customers in this highly regulated market,” said Marco Galbusera, the supply chain management company’s manager director in Iberia, in a written statement. “This investment will allow us to extend our relationships with our customers and will help us to keep growing our footprint in the logistics market.”
