International supply chain management company CEVA Logistics has expanded its operational capacity in Western Australia by officially opening new facilities at Hazelmere and High Wycombe.
Hazelmere is a 60,000 square metre, multi user facility while the High Wycombe site is a 40,000 square metre integrated transport and new vehicle storage facility. They were officially opened by Bill Marmion MP, Western Australia’s Minister for Finance and Mines and Petroleum.
CEVA’s Managing Director for Australia and New Zealand, Clayton Noble, said: “CEVA has a long history in Western Australia, and we are very excited about this next chapter. Our new facilities are an important investment that will give our customers tangible benefits through economies of scale, shared resources and industry-leading technology.”
The new buildings are near the Perth Airport freight hub and key arterial roads including the Tonkin, Roe, and Great Eastern Highways that are also in close proximity to key infrastructure, air and ocean connections. CEVA has done this in partnership with major customers in energy and mining, automotive, and consumer and rail sectors, who need the extended infrastructure.
The Hazelmere site has some 4,600 racking locations, continuous loading docks with dock levellers, a weigh in motion weighbridge, a 4,000 m2 breezeway, advanced materials handling equipment, integrated IT and warehouse management systems, and a bonded warehouse.
The High Wycombe site, which is designed to process some 25,000 vehicles each year, features hail protection nets, an automated car wash and truck height detection sensors.
CEVA Logistics is expanding its global infrastructure and the move in Western Australia is one of many as it establishes itself as a global brand leader in the sector.
