Latin America-based helicopter manufacturer, Helibras, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Airbus, has awarded CEVA Logistics a new five year contract through to 2024.
The new deal seeks to grow the strong working relationship the companies have built up together since 2013 and covers two facilities in the north of the Sao Paulo region at Atibaia and Itajuba (Minas Gerais). The plants manufacture both civilian and military helicopters which are destined for a diverse end-market including the armed forces and the oil and gas industry.
CEVA will continue to manage transport and warehousing at Atibaia, and warehousing at Itajuba where teams of its own highly trained staff manage ground transportation, inbound and outbound airfreight logistics as well as a range of contract logistics functions within each warehouse. The Atibaia site holds ‘SHOWCASE’ status, the highest level of site classification assessment which can be achieved within the CEVA global network.
Nadia Ribeiro, CEVA Logistics executive vice president, Latin America, says: “This renewal for an additional five years is a tremendous testament to the dedication of our team working on this exciting contract. Our commitment to safety, quality and productivity across the Helibras supply chain have been essential factors in the renewal of the business. Once again it shows CEVA’s expertise in the aerospace logistics arena.”
