CEVA Logistics’ Rolls Royce Singapore warehouse gets ‘showcase status’
The 65,000 sq metre assembly site in Singapore which CEVA Logistics operates on behalf of Rolls-Royce has been awarded showcase status within CEVA’s global network. Around the world within the logisticians’ operations, less than 30 sites have achieved this prestigious award requiring facilities to meet stringent requirements before qualifying as a showcase site.
The Singapore site is one of the few facilities within the SEAPAC (South East Asia & Pacific) region, but the first in the country to have garnered this achievement. For Rolls-Royce, this is a global first.
Showcase status was achieved over the course of just over a year where the operations team strived to meet 138 requirements across 14 metrics including health and safety, visual management (5S – Sort, Set in order, Shine, Standardize and Sustain), work instructions, resources scheduling, quality - KPIs, quality - non conformance, compliance, continuous improvement, customer performance, internal performance, financials, inventory, training communication and employee satisfaction and flow, ABC analysis and slotting.
Within the premises, the CEVA Logistics team is responsible for inbound receiving, inventory management, storage, picking and kitting of parts to the Rolls-Royce engine assembly line. For returns and outbound shipments to other countries, the team onsite also provides a global export service.
Supported by a highly motivated team, Rolls-Royce has built a strong working relationship with CEVA Logistics where mutual trust has resulted in a collaborative relationship now spanning 10 years.
This successful collaboration showcases CEVA Logistics’ expertise and ability to support customers in the aerospace industry.
CEVA’s regional managing director, South East Asia and Pacific, Elaine Low said, “Congratulations to Rolls-Royce and the entire CEVA Logistics team at this site. This has been a real collaborative effort and an extremely gratifying journey since taking ownership of the site in July 2019. We have witnessed the swift progression from basic level to advanced level and the exciting and progressive learning journey to showcase status. The team here is highly energized and has taken real ownership of the progress, remained focused, driven and determined to achieve this amazing standard given the many challenges we faced this year. The aerospace industry is an important focus for us and facilities like this make CEVA Logistics well-positioned for the sector’s potential recovery in 2021”.
The site will be reviewed internally on an annual basis and monthly reviews will be conducted to ensure full compliance with the process and to maintain its status.
