VA: CEVA to Invest in New Logistics Facility in Richmond
23 Jul, 2013
CEVA Logistics, one of the world’s leading supply chain management companies, announced that the company will expand to a new location in Richmond, VA, in late summer 2013.
Located at 6601 S. Laburnum Avenue at the Richmond Airport Distribution Center, the new facility is a multi-use site which will manage the logistics needs of several global brands, with room to expand. Additionally, the new facility triples the number of dock doors available to its freight management operation, including ramp access for enhanced security measures. The new facility also features office space expressly built out for CEVA’s rapidly growing domestic operation.
CEVA serves virtually the entire state of Virginia from its Richmond facility, including the state’s major port in Norfolk, the city of Roanoke to the west, and south across the North Carolina border. Services provided include Air import and export, warehousing (including pick and pack operations), Ocean import and export, domestic ground and residential home delivery of heavy, bulky items particularly for large customers that utilize ecommerce as an integral part of their business model.
“This new facility gives us room to expand our customer base and offerings in the Virginia market,” stated Larry Gamble, Vice President of Operations, East Region, for CEVA. “One of CEVA’s core strengths is our expertise in developing and managing LEAN operations. The new facility allows us to build on this expertise for greater productivity, with the added benefit of increased energy efficiency. We are excited about what this means for CEVA’s presence in Virginia.”
