CEVA Logistics has signed a three-year contract with Bayer MaterialScience (BMS) to manage its Spanish supply chain for spare parts and chemical products, including coatings, adhesives, sealant systems, polycarbonates, polyurethanes and thermoplastic polyurethanes. The agreement includes the management of BMS’s logistics activities at its plant within the Barcelona free trade zone, where CEVA will receive raw materials and then dispatch them for onward manufacturing while simultaneously managing the warehousing of finished product. As part of the contract, CEVA will also undertake drum filling and prepare orders for shipment across Europe. It will additionally send product samples for laboratory analysis and submit the reports to BMS.
“This agreement with CEVA allows us to focus on our core business by outsourcing our logistics activities to a reliable partner,” says BMS purchasing manager Juan Carlos Nebot. “CEVA is a global company, known for its expertise and excellence, and from which we expect high quality solutions and integrated services, ensuring cost effectiveness and great flexibility for our supply chain.”
“CEVA and Bayer MaterialScience’s teams worked in partnership to design a solution able to satisfy the customer’s specific requests and needs,” adds Antonio Fondevilla, CEVA’s business development director for contract logistics in Spain and Portugal. “We are proud that a prestigious company like Bayer MaterialScience decided to entrust us with this project. Thanks to our technologically advanced monitoring systems, we can offer complete, real-time visibility of the product through the supply chain, ensuring a high level of control and accuracy in managing the customer’s shipments and orders all over the world.”
