Leading supply chain company CEVA Logistics has announced the launch of TireCity, its fourth sector-specific multi-user hub in Italy.
The 50,000m2 hub is located in Lodi, northern Italy, and is fully dedicated to the warehousing, handling and cross docking of products in the tyre sector.
TireCity follows Ceva’s ‘City of Books’, ‘City of Pharma’ and ‘TechCity’, respectively dedicated to the publishing, healthcare and electronics sectors. CEVA believes that the future of supply chains in Italy is focused on a collaborative approach: sharing infrastructures, networks, people and processes through sector-focused multi user hubs, enabling customers to face market fluctuations, benefit from savings and receive high service levels.
“We have decided to create a new sector-focused multi user hub dedicated to the tyre sector, to continue to drive additional value for leading companies in this market, both existing and future customers,” said Giuseppe Chiellino, CEVA’s Managing Director, Italy.
“Thanks to TireCity we are now able to create economies of scale and learning, sharing knowledge, best practice and innovation, optimising transport flows and increasing productivity for our customers.”
“This hub is also the beginning of a strategic course of growth in the Automotive sector in Italy that starts from tyres as a key and vital element for vehicles such as cars, motorcycles and industrial and agricultural vehicles,” Chiellino stated.
“The launch of TireCity reinforces CEVA's leading presence in the Italian logistics market and accelerates our growth in the tire and Automotive sector, by offering distinctive and unique logistics solutions, customized for single category of products,” added Alberto Scagnetti, Vice President, Contract Logistics General Manager, for CEVA in Italy.
“Thanks to our Operations Excellence approach and relentless focus on impeccable standards, CEVA will be able to further invest in technology, competence and people, in order to meet the increasingly sophisticated needs of our tire customers and ensure efficiency and speed throughout the entire supply chain.”
