Chilly outlook for Ceva at London Gateway

[ October 10, 2019   //   ]

CEVA Logistics has officially opened its new cold chain facility at DP World London Gateway. The 10,000sq m Chill Hub offers up to 10,000 pallet positions with seven independent chambers capable of operating from -25°C through to +16°C.

Dedicated areas will handle pharmaceuticals, fresh and frozen produce, beverage products and flowers as well as other goods requiring temperature specific handling and storage.

Labelling, boxing, re-palletising, price coding, tagging and kitting are also available.

London Gateway has links to over 110 ports in 60 different countries and its dockside proximity to the warehouse means shunting can take as little as two hours.

CEVA Logistics chief executive, Nicolas Sartini, said: “With its excellent road and rail connections, our best in class warehouse management systems and direct port access, the Chill Hub is a powerful demonstration of the synergies between CEVA Logistics and CMA CGM. This state-of-the-art facility will enable us to offer a unique value proposition to our shipper customers, providing a faster delivery of goods through an energy-efficient building. We can also give full visibility and control of the entire inbound operation through the Chill Hub.”
