  • CEVA’s warehouse footprint in Shah Alam, Malaysia now totals 720,000 square feet.
  • CEVA’s new facility in Malaysia is located close to Malaysia’s main port in Klang.
  • CEVA’s CEO, Xavier Urbain: “Malaysia is in a region where a strong middle class is emerging.”

CEVA Logistics, the supply-chain management company, opened a distribution center in Shah Alam, Malaysia, 16 miles from Kuala Lumpur.

Constructed on the same site as CEVA’s Central Distribution Center 1, the new facility offers 355,000 square feet of additional warehousing and office space. The combined warehouse footprint of the new CDC2 and the existing CDC1 now totals approximately 720,000 square feet, making it the largest site in CEVA’s Southeast Asia cluster, which comprises Singapore, Malaysia, and Indonesia.

CEVA’s new facility is in a strategic industrial area with excellent logistics infrastructure, connected to a highly-developed road network and an expanding rapid transit system, and located close to Malaysia’s main port in Klang. The new, enlarged facility strengthens CEVA’s capabilities to offer fully integrated logistics and supply chain solutions to new and existing customers in Malaysia.

“Malaysia is one of our key markets in the Asia region,” said CEVA’s CEO, Xavier Urbain. “The country has excellent connectivity both domestically and internationally. It is also in a region where a strong middle class is emerging to drive Asian consumption upwards, positively influencing trade and supply chain activities across various sectors. All these factors make Malaysia a strategic market for CEVA to invest in, allowing us to enhance the scope and quality of our services for customers.”

The new CDC2 is a double story warehouse facility with direct truck access to 40 loading docks on both levels. It is the first design of its type to be approved in Malaysia, as part of a drive to maximize the productivity of land used for warehousing space.

The entire building has been designed and constructed to minimize its environmental impact, with features including special continuous ventilated roller shutters for maximizing air circulation.

“CDC2 will play a key role as a regional distribution center for several of our customers in Southeast Asia, especially in the consumer and retail sectors,” said Elaine Low, CEVA’s executive vice president for Southeast Asia.”
