CEVA Logistics is expanding its market presence in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The new location for the company’s operations, in Richmond, BC, is positioned near Vancouver International Airport, the Port of Vancouver – Canada’s largest port – and major road arteries. CEVA will occupy the facility, which totals 53,189 sq. ft. (4,941 sq m), on 1 March 2015.
The new facility is located at 18233 Blundell Road and – in addition to more square footage – also provides a significant increase in dock doors, more trailer parking space, a freight yard to provide additional cargo container storage for ocean freight operations and 2,500 racking locations.
“We’ve enjoyed great success in the Vancouver market and were simply out of space at our former location,” stated David Convery, CEVA’s country manager for Canada. “This facility relieves space constraints and will enable us to better serve new and existing customers – including the many multi-national customers who utilise this operation – as well as better leverage our ocean freight and eastbound less-than-truck load (LTL) services.”
Services at the new facility include air and ground freight management and consolidation, global ocean NVOCC (full container load (FCL) and less-than-container load (LCL)), ocean import, brokerage, value-added services, warehousing, distribution and sector-specific services for automotive, technology, consumer and retail, industrial and other markets.
