Ceva Logistics announced the launch of its Less than Truck Load (LTL) service as part of Ceva Ground’s cross-border road freight offering in Asia Pacific. The LTL service will enhance Ceva's existing cross-border solution which runs from Singapore to China with an average of 500 trips each month for various multinational customers in the region.
Ceva's cross-border service currently provides an integrated and cost effective solution for customers that need to balance speed and timely shipments throughout Asia with Full Truck Load (FTL) services. The LTL services will leverage Ceva’s established FTL regional network to offer a wider range of services for its customers and greater choice between LTL and FTL for faster response and delivery times.
The LTL service will launch with three initial cross-border lanes: from Shenzhen, China to Penang, Malaysia; Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam to Shenzhen in China, and Singapore to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. These lanes are heavily travelled routes and critical links in companies' supply chains.
Norm Mummery, senior vice president, regional operations, for Asia Pacific said: "We are very pleased with the success we have had since launching our cross-border Roadfreight solution last year. Our integrated road freight services are now further enhanced to meet our customers’ varying needs with the addition of the LTL offering. Intra Asia freight movements continue to be a rising trend in line with the economic growth in the region and Ceva's local expertise enables us to deliver greater value to our customers, offering reliability, speed, the highest security standards and world-class freight management systems and processes."
