Global supply chain business, CEVA Logistics, has opened an office in Sri Lanka which will service clients in both the island nation and in the Maldives.
From its headquarters in Colombo customers will be offered a full range of multi-modal services including air, ocean, sea-air Customs brokerage and road transportation solutions alongside the benefits of additional services operated within a Free Zone according to CEVA Logistics.
“With our own operations being set up in Sri Lanka we are now able to take our operation in Sri Lanka and the Maldives to the next level,” said CEVA Logistics Executive Vice President IMEA, India, Middle East, Africa, Fuat Adoran.
“CEVA Logistics’ customers will find we are able to deliver more efficient solutions across a greater range of services,” he said. “Inbound customers will be able to take advantage of the strong domestic network we can now offer across Sri Lanka while exporters in this rapidly emerging economy will now have wider international access for their shipments.”
CEVA Logistics said it will add greater value to the predominantly export driven Sri Lankan economy, serving industries such as garments and textiles, machinery and electronics among others. CEVA is also entering the market at a time when the country is bidding to position itself as a regional logistics hub, with its strategic location in Asia.
