Fresh look for Ceva in Colombia

[ August 9, 2021   //   ]

Ceva Logistics has signed an agreement to acquire 100% of Bogotá, Colombia-based forwarder Cargex. It will also take complete control of the Cargex customs brokerage affiliate, Agencias de Aduanas Aduanamos. Cargex focuses on exports of perishable goods and has operations in Bogotá, Medellin, Cartagena, Buenaventura and Santa Marta.

Cargex general manager Pablo Torres will join CEVA Logistics as director of perishables for Colombia and Ecuador.

CEVA Logistics now has a presence in ten countries in Latin America. It will maintain its current Colombian presence in Bogotá, Medellin, Cali, Buenaventura, Cartagena, Ipiales and Santa Marta, as well as its offices in Guayaquil and Quito in Ecuador.

CEVA expects the perishables market in Latin America to rise annually by 10% to 2024 and air freight will play a key role as its Skycapacity program will play a critical role in connecting Latin America to international markets.
