CEVA Logistics, one of the world’s largest supply chain management companies has had its contract with John West Foods renewed and expanded for an additional three years

Ashby-de-la-Zouch, UK, 19 July, 2016 – CEVA Logistics, one of the world’s largest supply chain management companies has had its contract with John West Foods renewed and expanded for an additional three years. CEVA commenced its partnership with the leading household name in ambient seafood back in 2007 and has already seen a 25% increase in throughput since signing the new deal.

The operation is based at CEVA’s multi-user site in Mendlesham, Suffolk and includes the management of 150,000 sq ft of warehousing and a dedicated re-work service for packing loose cans into customer trade unit specifications. John West Foods, part of the Thai Union group – one of the world’s largest seafood companies - has its own staff and laboratory on-site at Mendlesham to oversee sampling of imported goods from a worldwide production network.

On John West’s behalf, CEVA manages the inbound container movements to the site from the Port of Felixstowe some 30 miles to the south and in 2015 handled more than 33,000 tonnes through the facility. Palletized containers and trailers coming into the UK can include tuna, sardine, mackerel, herring, caviar, salmon, oysters, mussels and lobster among many others. CEVA is responsible for the outbound national distribution of palletized orders to multiple retailers and wholesalers in more than 340 active delivery points around the country.

As part of the contract renewal, investment at the Mendlesham site has involved consolidating all warehousing into a single unit, fitting new dock levelers and a sprinkler system and the refurbishment of the office facilities. CEVA’s Freight Management team will now take on additional responsibility for import and Customs management including all port health documentation.

“Our long-standing relationship with this household name continues to grow and we are delighted that John West Foods has chosen to extend our partnership further. The customer has seen our drive for operational excellence in action and the CEVA team’s role has been expanded into new areas as we strive to make John West’s supply chain even more nimble and efficient”, says Michael O’Donoghue, CEVA’s Executive Vice President UK, Ireland and Nordics.
