CEVA Logistics has signed a three year renewal agreement worth €6.7 million, with Honda Logistics Europe NV, part of the Honda Motor Co. group, the largest producer of motorcycles and cars in the world.

CEVA will continue to manage the forwarding of spare parts for all Honda products (cars, motorcycles and power equipment) to the more than 1,500 Honda dealers around Italy. In addition, for the Honda Power Equipment and Honda Marine divisions, CEVA will handle the Italian network distribution of the extensive range of finished products from two Honda Logistics Europe bases: the central European warehouse in Ghent, Belgium, and the regional Italian warehouse at Colognola ai Colli, near Verona.

According to Ray Runza, Europe Transport Manager of Honda Logistics Europe NV, the partnership began over 12 years ago. Since then, he added, the two companies have been “operating in an integrated manner.”

Gianfranco Sgro, President of CEVA for Southern Europe, Middle East and Africa, added, that Honda is a one of their top customers and a part of its exclusive “Century Partnership Account” program.

This program, he said, is designed to support the growth of its hundred largest customers globally.

“In these years of collaboration, CEVA has developed synergies between the distribution flows of spare parts and the finished products handled for Honda, further reducing costs and increasing flexibility and the quality of the service provided,” said Sgro.
