CEVA will operate the production supply logistics on behalf of Airbus at multiple locations with a total area of 58,631 m². Among the services that will be provided are inbound, put away/storage, pick and prepare, marketplace, internal transport, delivery to point of use, returns, empties handling and external dispatch.
Within the scope of the new contract, CEVA will initiate and implement logistics improvements and projects, using LEAN principles to further increase efficiency within the facilities.
Mathieu Friedberg, chief executive officer, CEVA, commented : “CEVA’s capabilities and commitment in aerospace logistics have once again been recognized by Airbus with the awarding of this new contract. Our two companies have successfully worked together previously on other projects, most recently in Hamburg on the spare parts and components contract. The depth of CEVA’s specialist knowledge in this industry, combined with its innovative operational and delivery solutions, have been key to securing this new business.”
