Ceva teams up with Ferrari again

[ January 26, 2024   //   ]

Ceva Logistics, a subsidiary of the CMA CGM Group, has signed a new multi-year agreement to continue providing all logistics services for Scuderia Ferrari’s cars and equipment during Grand Prix, GT races and Ferrari Challenge events.

As a Team Partner of Scuderia Ferrari, the Ceva Logistics logo will remain on Scuderia Ferrari’s new 2024 single-seater, on the team’s vehicles, and on the equipment and clothing of the drivers and racing team.

Scuderia Ferrari has taken part in every edition of the Formula 1 World Championship since 1950 and holds the record for the most Grand Prix wins, with 243 victories and 16 Constructors’ World Championships.

Ceva has worked with Scuderia Ferrari since 2022, transporting equipment around the world within timeframes required. CEVA is now ready for the 2024 Formula 1 World Championship, which will include 24 events worldwide starting on March 2 in Bahrain and ending on December 8 in Abu Dhabi.

In 2023, it organized a world-first rail transport service to deliver Scuderia Ferrari’s equipment between three North American Grand Prix, reducing the carbon footprint by 90% compared to air transport and by 32% compared to road.

Ceva logistics deputy chief executive, Olivier Storch, said: “Since 2022, we have demonstrated that we have a lot in common with Ferrari. Like Scuderia Ferrari, we are constantly designing and improving our solutions. We anticipate the next changes in our sector or in our customers’ ecosystems.

“Like Ferrari, we implement more sustainable solutions and reduce our environmental footprint. Like Ferrari, innovation is a key factor in our success. The renewal of our partnership is proof of CEVA’s ambition and ability to achieve excellence in all circumstances.”

Ferrari chief racing officer, Lorenzo Giorgetti, added: “Modern motorsport places ever greater challenges on its logistical requirements. Compared to just a few years ago, there are many more Formula 1 races held outside Europe, as the calendar visits four continents. For the first time in the sport’s history, this year’s championship boasts 24 races.

“This hectic pace means it is vital for Scuderia Ferrari to be able to count on a world-class logistics partner like CEVA Logistics, as it guarantees an on-time and precise service, while sharing Ferrari’s passion for innovation and the desire to push the boundaries, continuously improving in their respective fields, while also taking into consideration the current challenges linked to respect for the environment and the planet.”
