End-to-end portfolio of supply chain services and solutions creates competitive advantage for CEVA’s customers in both countries
Houston, USA, 29 May, 2013 – CEVA Logistics, one of the world’s leading supply chain management companies, today announced the inauguration of two new services in its US-Mexico Transborder portfolio – ‘Mexico Direct,’ a solution that offers faster customs clearance for Mexico importers, and a new Rail (intermodal) service. Combined with CEVA’s existing portfolio of Transborder service offerings, customers are provided a seamless, end-to-end logistics solution that builds upon the vital relationship between CEVA’s US and Mexico organizations and the company’s extensive infrastructure in both countries.With more than US$500 billion in goods and services exchanged between the two countries in 2012 (according to the Instituto Nacional de Estadistica y Geografia, Mexico’s national statistics bureau), Mexico has become one of the US’ top trading partners. As a result more than 11,000 truck and 1,200 rail car border crossings occur every day – just in Laredo, Texas. With its additional Transborder services, CEVA is well positioned on both sides of the border to leverage its substantial infrastructure and decades of Transborder expertise by adding both a faster and a more economical mode of transport between the two operations.
“CEVA has always been known for its Air and expedited Transborder offerings,” stated Sam Slater, Executive Vice President, Freight Management, for CEVA in North America. “With these new offerings, the company adds an even faster ground expedite solution through ‘Mexico Direct,’ taking a day out of transit, and also provides a more economical and ‘green’ offering by capitalizing on continued infrastructure improvement with our valued Rail partners.”
Increasing US-Mexico trade momentum
Boris Franchomme, Senior Vice President, Mexico and Central America for CEVA, said: “Increasing US-Mexico trade represents a significant opportunity for CEVA, and our innovative Transborder offerings give us a tremendous competitive advantage in the region. By combining our extensive North American network with our Mexican market expertise, we are able to add new capability and flexibility to offer more tailormade solutions for our customers. In addition, CEVA’s non-asset based model allows for flexible and time definite solutions with visibility across the entire supply chain.”
CEVA’s full service Transborder portfolio spans the spectrum from Air charter to intermodal services and all levels between. Additional details are shown below.
