CEVA Logistics opens offices in Ecuador and Uruguay
As part of its strategic expansion across the Latin American markets, CEVA Logistics has officially opened its own offices in Ecuador and Uruguay. The company has been well established for many years in both countries through network partnerships and decided to open its own offices in each location to offer customers a full spectrum of multi-modal services.
Ecuador: a strategic and diverse market
Air, ocean and ground operations will be headquartered in Ecuador’s second city, Guayaquil, and multi-modal operations have been established in the capital Quito. CEVA Logistics’ teams in Ecuador will keep serving existing local customers and develop business to provide end to end solutions for the perishables, consumer and oil & gas sectors.
The Latin American country is a strategic market in the region. Production of perishable products is especially diverse (flowers, cocoa, seafood, fruits and vegetable) and has a high potential. Furthermore, it offers access to key export markets, in other Andean countries such as Colombia and Peru, as well as the USA, Asia and Europe.
Uruguay: a key market for intermodal and exports
With a head office in Montevideo, CEVA Logistics’ own operation in Uruguay will especially serve customers in agriculture & livestock farming, focusing on exports in products such as rice, citrus fruits, wood, leather, meat and dairy products. The team will also target key markets such as the technological, industrial and healthcare sectors.
CEVA Logistics will offer customers a range of multi modal services across air, ocean, road and Contract Logistics. These will include intermodal services through to Argentina and Paraguay along with Customs Brokerage services for imports and exports. The main export focus will be on ocean & ground including multimodal transport up to Argentina & Paraguay.
Uruguay is a logistics hub in the area thanks to the port of Montevideo, which is the main point of departure for ocean traffic, especially for shipments from Paraguay.
As part of the CMA CGM Group, CEVA Logistics will create synergies to develop new domestic and international ground services. Furthermore, Mercosul Line, one of the leading players in Brazil’s domestic container shipping market, services will be a key asset to further promote business between Brazil, Uruguay and Paraguay.
Nadia Ribeiro, Managing Director LATAM, CEVA Logistics, says, “Our LATAM services are growing at a fast pace and this expansion of our own offices network is the next step to serve our customers and offer the most innovative and best-in-class services.”
The Ecuador team is under the leadership of Sebastian Enriquez, Station Manager Ecuador, and the country reports to the Managing Director of Colombia & Ecuador, Mauricio Galindo. While in Uruguay the new operation is under the leadership of Station Manager, Michelle Nobile that reports to the Managing Director of Argentina & Uruguay, Juan Blanco.
