CEVA and Ford Extend Relationship at Louisville Plant
CEVA will provide container management, deconsolidation, metering, sequencing, transportation, and inventory control for Ford’s Louisville Assembly Plant (LAP) in Louisville, Kentucky.
CEVA has served Ford LAP as a Manufacturing Support Center (MSC) provider for the past four years.
CEVA will renew services to include metering, small lot logistics, return container management, and just-in-time transportation to and from the plant. CEVA will also expand its services to provide sequencing to the line various parts in color/type order for ease of installation. CEVA will be investing in improvements to its current facilities by adding capacity in the form of an additional facility and equipment at the LAP site to better serve Ford.
“The automotive sector is one of CEVA’s largest and we owe our successes to operational excellence and year-over-year service improvements on Ford’s behalf,” said Kerry Zielinski, CEVA’s vice president of business development for automotive in North America.
“We value the relationship we have globally with Ford,” said Antonio Fondevilla, CEVA’s executive vice president for the automotive sector. “We appreciate Ford’s trust in us to provide them with top quality supply chain services assisting day-to-day operational logistics.”
Also in support of Ford, CEVA invested in new facilities in Kansas City and Louisville which opened in July 2015 to support the Kentucky truck plant, adjacent to its existing facility.
