CEVA logistics has launched a cross-border road freight service in South East Asia, providing an integrated service from Singapore, through Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam to China.
CEVA expects approximately 72,000 tons to be carried on the cross border service within the first 12 months, and will be offering Full Truck Load (FTL) and Less Than Truck Load (LTL) services for maximum flexibility in response and delivery times.
According to Casey Fisher, EVP for CEVA in South East Asia, the cross border service will “simplify” shipper supply chains.
In an interview with SCMR, Brian Clancy, managing director, Logistics Capital & Strategy, LLC, said more alternatives to costly air cargo may be in the offing.
“Time-definite service can be achieved in many cases, without ever loading cargo on a plane,” he said. “And when you consider near-sourcing, this becomes even more clear.”
Ceva spokesmen said that the company’s in-house expertise has enabled it to creat this new offering, and it has enabled them to successfully navigate the different Customs and border requirements to bring this new product to market.
Spokesmen added that South East Asia is a dynamic market and, as a heavily travelled corridor for freight movements, is a critical link in the supply chains of many global organizations. The service was developed in response to the needs of customers who have to balance speed and timely shipments throughout South East Asia with a cost-effective and reliable service.
