CEVA Logistics has further expanded its eCommerce services through new business wins in the UK, Turkey, US, Canada and Brazil in the last few months.
The company said its 'unique global footprint as well as the ability to provide both warehousing and global transport and freight forwarding solutions for B2B and B2C supply chains sets a sound basis for global services in omni-channel, eFulfillment and cross-border eCommerce.'
It continued: 'Speed is everything in this business and you must be able to design and run networks which deliver optimised costs and fast lead-times.'
Chief commercial officer Laurent Binetti said: 'Our investment in high-speed eCommerce fulfilment centres and specific eCommerce transport solutions is starting to pay off. Our strong IT integration capabilities dovetail logistics with the online world in a way which really works for the customer.'
The logistics provider's eFulfillment centres rely on its dense global network which serve next-day or even same day delivery, while its eCommerce solutions are designed to enable its customers to successfully sell over the Internet by optimising their supply chains for the digital age.
CEVA develops existing client business in this fast-growing sector organically and by penetrating new geographic areas with strong growth potential for the future new business.
Cross-border eCommerce has a significant market share already and is expected to expand rapidly in the next few years. Global eCommerce head Niels Weithe added: 'Shipping from China to a consumer in London in four days for a reasonable price is one of the products we see a very strong demand for moving forward.
'The general shift of logistics volume into eCommerce, the omni-channel integration requiring new warehousing and last mile solutions and the globalisation of eCommerce are the most relevant challenges for a logistics services provider. These are the areas where we invest heavily.'
