Melbourne, Australia, 26 February 2016 – CEVA Logistics, one of the world’s leading supply chain companies’, today signaled its commitment to existing customers and market growth in Western Australia with the official opening of new state of the art facilities at Hazelmere and High Wycombe.

Our new facilities are an important investment that will give our customers tangible benefits through economies of scale, shared resources and industry-leading technology.
CEVA constructed the new buildings near the Perth Airport freight hub and key arterial roads including the Roe, Tonkin and Great Eastern Highways in close proximity to key infrastructure, and air and ocean service connections. Major customers across the Automotive, Energy & Mining and Consumer & Retail sectors have partnered with CEVA become the launch tenants of the new facilities.
