CEVA Logistics, a leading global supply chain management company has been awarded a contract with BMW UK to manage the delivery of spare parts to approximately 200 BMW and MINI dealerships across the UK and Northern Ireland. CEVA will provide a transport solution using a specialist collaborative delivery service, specific to the requirements of moving automotive parts overnight. By leveraging transport synergies this collaborative delivery network provides a service typical of a dedicated operation but at a significantly lower cost.
At the heart of the service is CEVAâ€™s C-CAM IT track and trace system which monitors all transactions and movement of assets, including all returns and reverse logistics.
Martin Douglas, National Parts Manager, BMW (UK) Ltd said: â€œBMW and CEVA already work together in many markets around the world. Their high level of expertise in the automotive sector makes them the clear choice for our UK parts distribution. We are sure that CEVAâ€™s passion for excellence and commitment to their customers will drive forward a strong partnership.â€
