CEVA Logistics has been recognised by Ford Motor Company as one of its Top Suppliers in South America.
At Ford’s Top Management annual meeting in São Paulo, Brazil CEVA received the award as 2016’s Top Supplier in the Category Logistics and Transportation. The award is based on a comprehensive assessment that includes criteria such as service performance, cost reductions, and commercial relationship. CEVA’s Executive Vice President for the South America Cluster, Nádia Ribeiro and Osmar Felix, Regional Key Account Director, represented CEVA at the event.
CEVA’s partnership with Ford in South America began more than seven years ago and encompasses freight management services in Brazil and Argentina, both for Air and Ocean Freight, including shipments from Europe, Asia, US and Mexico to all Ford’s locations in Brazil, and to its main factory in Argentina. The account represents almost 4,000 tons of cargo handled every year through CEVA.
Nádia Ribeiro explained: “We are honoured to receive this award from one of our key customers in the region. It is a great achievement to be recognised as a Top Supplier by Ford after handling their freight business to South America for a number of years.
“Ford is such a recognised brand in the automotive market. This wouldn’t have been possible without the continuous efforts of our CEVA teams in the Brazil and Argentina, who have worked very hard to achieve operational and service excellence for the customer, ” Ribeiro continued. “It is also important to highlight the close collaboration with Ford because excellence is best achieved when we work as a team. This award is a strong testament to the quality of our operations and testifies to our logistics expertise in the automotive sector.”
