Bangkok, Thailand, 2009/03/26 - CEVA Logistics, one of the world’s leading supply chain companies, today announced that it had maintained its number one position in the International Transport Air Association (IATA) ranking in Thailand.
This is the second consecutive year that CEVA tops the IATA ranking list after it announced a 27% airfreight growth and achieved over 3.8 billion Baht of airfreight sales volume in Thailand for 2008.
“Certainly, this is an impressive accomplishment that we are able to maintain our leading airfreight position in Thailand even during these tough times. I believe that the local demand for outsourcing logistics will continue to grow as companies look to consolidate their operations and focus on their primary business needs.” commented Roy Tan, CEVA’s Country Manager for Freight Management operations in Thailand. Tan furthermore shared that the outstanding performance is directly attributable to the team’s commitment in one of the CEVA’s key values ‘Customers Come First’. “Our team takes pride in meeting our customers’ needs and expectations, driving us in everything we do. In addition, establishing a reliable relationship with the airline partners is a very important component in our airfreight operations today.” said Tan.
In Thailand, CEVA employs more than 3,800 people across its 700,000 square meters of warehouses and shipping yards, and operates over 520 dedicated vehicles and trailers. In terms of air freight services, CEVA provides international coverage in more than 100 countries and offers a comprehensive range of services including critical response service for urgent shipping needs, oversized cargo and worldwide charter services.
