It includes a combination of temperature-controlled and ambient storage space, conducive and modern office space for in-plant customers, advanced materials handling equipment, advanced RF warehouse management system and customs stationed on-site to facilitate on-time clearance.
This is also an integrated hub that will house under one roof CEVA’S contract logistics and freight management teams for Malaysia, as well as its global supply chain solutions control tower teams who support its 24x7 largest customers globally.
Elaine Low, executive vice president South East Asia at CEVA Logistics, remarked: “CEVA continues to invest in its customer needs in Malaysia. This new facility, which has doubled our footprint in Penang, will continue to support our growth needs and positions us for future expansion in the market. With its strategic location in the northern part of Malaysia, coupled with the air cargo hub at Bayan Lepas airport, it aims to cater to a wide range of logistics and warehousing services and offer even greater value and benefits to our customers.”
