CEVA Logistics, one of the world’s leading supply chain companies, has today announced the opening of a global distribution center for industrial spare parts, consisting of warehousing space of 12,000 sq m and a yard of 10,000 sq m in Born, the Netherlands.

The new center features 28,000 bin locations and 3,000 sq m floor storage in the warehouse and a yard of 4,000 racking locations and 4,500 sq m floor storage. The location offers full service, including inbound unloading, receipt and put away; outbound picking, packing and loading, and quality inspection.

Centrally located in Europe, ideal for European distribution, CEVA will send a variety of parts to end customers and also to replenish local distribution centers worldwide. The site is located within an industrial estate, which has excellent transport links to both Air and Ocean ports, and road, rail and barge, with the potential for expansion inside and out.

This new location is near the existing CEVA multi user site in Born which caters to several sectors.  In total, CEVA’s workforce in Born totals approximately 100. CEVA’s multi user facilities provide customers with sector-specific expertise, as well as cost, efficiency and technology benefits through sharing the costs of health and safety, day-to-day operations and other associated operating costs.

“We are very proud to add another global spare parts facility and additional companies to our customer base. It emphasizes our expertise in the spare parts business as well as our capability to provide global coverage for multinational companies.  We are committed to providing our customers the benefit of our years of industry best practices,” said Bart Beeks, Managing Director in the Benelux.
