Mazda Australia makes CEVA its sole Australian transport provider
JULY 20, 2015: CEVA Logistics has been awarded two new contracts by Mazda in Australia that will make CEVA Mazda Australia’s sole national provider of transport services.
Under the two new contracts, CEVA will manage the transportation of Mazda vehicles from their arrival at the wharf to delivery at dealerships in Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania, and also manage the storage and processing of vehicles for transportation to dealerships in Western Australia. These contracts build on similar services CEVA already provides in New South Wales and Queensland, to create a nationwide relationship.
Kym Mellow, National Operations Manager at Mazda Australia, said, “With the launch of several new Mazda models this year, including the first ever Mazda CX-3 and the new generation Mazda MX-5, Mazda in Australia is experiencing record growth.
“In choosing CEVA as our sole national provider, we know we have a partner capable of handling our additional volume and storage throughputs, with a major fleet of reliable and efficient transporters, a national network of trained operators and allocators and, most importantly, a logistics team that understands Mazda’s philosophy of customer service,’ said Mellow.
Casey Fisher, Managing director of CEVA in Australia and New Zealand, said, “We have been proud to work with Mazda in Australia for about 20 years, and are delighted to extend our growing relationship with this great company.
“We see it as confirmation that our past performance and future plans are meeting their needs, and we will stay focused on delivering a range of service improvements to ensure all vehicles arrive at their destination in factory condition on or ahead of time. That includes adopting a national pre-delivery notification process for Mazda that uses our bespoke C-PoD technology for instant, real time information about every aspect of the vehicle transport process.”
