Ceva opens new Brazil site

[ March 25, 2022   //   ]

CEVA Logistics has opened a new contract logistics warehouse in Jundiai, Brazil, that it aims to become a regional centre of excellence. Located 57km northwest of Sao Paolo, the greenfield site met criteria including the ability to retain all its workforce operating at the previous site in Louveira, Brazil and now about 250 employees work there. Customers include Caudalie, ConvaTec, Fareva, Geo, Hilti, Logitech, Omron, Sephora, Stanley Black & Decker, Triumph and Terex.

The new facility has 62 administrative workstations, 14 conference rooms, two training rooms and two spacious employee break areas. The 25,000sq m warehouse features 37 docks and a storage capacity of 38,000 pallets.

The warehouse includes translucent ceiling tiles, a program to reuse rainwater, all LED lighting and a thermos-acoustic system to help regulate the building’s internal temperature. The building is also being studied to determine how much solar energy can be harvested from its planned solar panel installation.
