Ceva and Carrefour ink new pact
The supply chain management company Ceva Logistics has been awarded a major delivery contract by the France-based, multinational retailer Carrefour.
Centred initially on the Paris region, Ceva is responsible for daily deliveries of soft drinks and dried products to almost 60 stores. Operating from its 36'000 sqm facility close to Charles de Gaulle airport, Ceva is also handling reverse logistics for Carrefour including removing packaging and cartons post-delivery.
In addition, the logistics provider recently opened a specialist warehouse for healthcare and beauty products to support Carrefour’s new parapharmacy concept which will be developed over the coming years. This 7,000 sqm facility, close to Reims, will initially employ 80 employees. Staff numbers will rise when the new parapharmacy business stream goes live within the Carrefour network. (mw)
