LUSH Cosmetics awards logistics contract to CEVA in UK and Ireland
May 8, 2018: As CEVA Logistics embarks on a new adventure with the CMA CGM Group, the company has gained contract from LUSH Cosmetics.
The cosmetics producer has inked deal with CEVA to manage and deliver LUSH products to its stores across the UK and Ireland. Based on this agreement, CEVA will be responsible for moving the full range of items sold by LUSH.
LUSH is an ethically responsible cosmetics producer selling fresh, handmade, vegetarian cosmetics including hair care, skincare, bath bombs, shower gels, fragrances and other beauty products.
CEVA will make daily collections from LUSH's UK distribution centre at Poole. Collected merchandise will be taken into CEVA's overnight distribution network for delivery throughout the night to LUSH's store network in the UK and Ireland.
CEVA will implement innovative, sustainable and value-added solutions. Double deck trailers will thus be used for trunking, which will significantly reduce distance travelled and vehicles on roads. Additionally, the CEVA vehicle fleet is fitted with telematics, which will provide data and insight to influence driver behaviour and reduce fuel consumption.
As a further part of the value-added solution, CEVA's shared user network will be utilised to perform final mile delivery to almost 80 stores and ensure full visibility of all products as they are moved.
LUSH's store managers will benefit from timely deliveries to their sites and decanting at night through unassisted deliveries to ensure minimal disruption to daytime activities. By using the CEVA Track app, they will also receive up to date/real-time delivery information on their individual orders.
Eddie Aston, managing director, CEVA's UK, Ireland and Nordics said: “Our shared values mean LUSH will benefit from CEVA’s approach to minimising our combined impact on the environment through environmentally responsible logistics solutions.”
