CEVA invest $20 million in UK ground transport fleet
UK, October 29, 2014 (STAT):- CEVA Logistics elatedly announced a major fleet investment program within the UK. The investment, worth $20 million, will add 120 tractor units, 40 rigid vehicles and 180 new trailers to CEVA's extensive UK ground transport fleet before the end of 2014.
Commenting about the investment, Michael O'Donoghue, CEVA's Executive Vice President, UK, Ireland and Nordics commented: "We are delighted to make this investment in our ground transport operation. It increases our size and scale and signals our optimism in the UK marketplace."
All of the vehicles will be fitted with telematics and the rigid vehicles will have an innovative load restraint system to enable use across multiple CEVA operations. CEVA and its customers will also benefit from some weight saving enhancements to the trailer specification, which increases carrying capacity to 29.2 tons. The new fleet will be predominately used for CEVA's Consumer and Retail operations in the UK and will form part of CEVA's ground transportation service which uses sophisticated monitoring systems to give CEVA, and its customers, outstanding flexibility, control and visibility.
"We've also added innovative and creative solutions that will benefit our own operations and our customers'. All of the vehicles on order will be fitted with telematics which help us to measure, monitor and continually improve the behaviour of our drivers in terms of safety and efficiency." Added Michael.
