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.

The dark side of the “Amazon effect” and larger impact made by the explosive growth in e-commerce may soon be seen when organized labor prepares for a massive air cargo strike.

During this webcast our panelist offer logistics and supply chain professionals a “reality check” when it comes to our current state of understanding, adoption, and utilization of the technological tools that are available to improve our operations.

The index ISM uses to measure non-manufacturing growth—known as the NMI—was 55.7 in April (a level of 50 or higher indicates growth), which was up 1.2 percent compared to March, with economic activity in the non-manufacturing sector growing for the 75th consecutive month.

Total gross first quarter revenue for XPO was up 404.4 percent annually to $3.5 billion, with net revenue up 510.5 percent to $1.6 billion. While gross and net revenue were up, the company reported a net loss of $23.2 million, or $0.21 per diluted share and an adjusted net loss attributable to common shareholders of $9.3 million or $0.08 per share.

Regardless of capacity, pricing, or the economy, trucking industry regulations are never far from the freight transportation limelight. That is especially evident when it comes to the federally mandated hours-of-service (HOS) regulations. As usual, the current state of HOS remains somewhat fluid. And the reason for that has to do with legislation coming from the Senate Transportation Appropriations legislation that is currently being considered by the Senate.
