Planning, coordination, and execution of CEVA enables General Motors and Ventec Life Systems to begin mass production of critical care ventilators under contract to the US Department of Health and Human Services.
Under GM's contract with the department, CEVA Logistics is responsible for delivering hundreds of parts which will be used in the making of the Ventec Life Systems V+Pro critical care ventilator at the Kokomo plant.
CEVA and General Motors have worked together for more than a decade. On this specialist project CEVA Logistics is providing supplier management, order management, transportation and customs brokerage management and event monitoring for all the components required in manufacturing ventilators.
CEVA has had an extensive US operation covering air, ocean, ground and contract logistics for the last decade and it provided full service logistics nationwide for 15 years prior to that - under the EGL banner it became a global force in freight management - before it was merged with TNT Logistics to create CEVA.
