CEVA Logistics, one of the world’s largest supply chain management companies, has opened a new multi-user facility in Penang, Malaysia. Situated within the Bayan Lepas Free Industrial Zone Phase IV, the 6,500sqm facility is located 10 minutes away from the Penang International Airport and 10 minutes from the Penang Bridge, connecting the island to mainland Malaysia.
“This new multi-user warehouse delivers cost efficiency and flexibility through an optimised layout design and improved infrastructure to serve our customers,” CEVA said. It includes a combination of temperature-controlled and ambient storage space, office space for in-plant customers, advanced materials handling equipment, advanced RF warehouse management system and Customs stationed on-site to facilitate on-time clearance.
This is also an integrated hub that will house under one roof CEVA’s contract logistics and freight management teams for Malaysia as well as its global supply chain solutions control tower teams who support its 24×7 largest customers globally.
“CEVA continues to invest in its customer needs in Malaysia, this new facility which has doubled our footprint in Penang will continue to support our growth needs and positions us for future expansion in the market,” said Elaine Low, CEVA’s executive vice president, South East Asia. “With its strategic location in the northern part of Malaysia, coupled with the air cargo hub at Bayan Lepas airport, it aims to cater to a wide range of logistics and warehousing services and offer even greater value and benefits to our customers,” she added.
