CEVA Logistics, a leading global supply chain management company, today announced it has renewed its contract for 5 years with MANN+HUMMEL for its aftermarket logistics. MANN+HUMMEL is one of the world's leading manufacturers of filtration and intake systems in the automobile industry.
CEVA has successfully operated at MANN+HUMMEL’s 17,000 square meters storage facility at the Niederaichbach location since 2002, where CEVA received, issued, controlled, cleared, commissioned and packaged several hundred thousand oil and air filters before leaving for use in over 55 countries throughout the world.
"Thanks to a professional integration of CEVA with MANN+HUMMEL's logistical processes during the past seven years, we have improved efficiency and quality and reduced costs. We are therefore convinced that this future collaboration with CEVA, will be as successful as it has been over the past seven years, and we very much look forward to continue to work with CEVA", explained Thomas Mangold, Head of aftermarket logistics at MANN+HUMMEL.
"The confidence that MANN+HUMMEL has expressed by extending this contract is something we value greatly, and underlines our first-class service in the area of contract logistics", said John Klompers, Managing Director of CEVA Central Europe.
