FIAMM, a manufacturer of batteries and horns for automotive and industrial use, has appointed CEVA Logistics to manage the distribution in Italy of three product groups: standby batteries, starter batteries and horns. CEVA will be responsible for the picking of products at FIAMM’s warehouses in Almisano, in the province of Vicenza, and Veronella, in the province of Verona; it will also undertake deliveries to end customers. Under a new two-year agreement, CEVA will handle around 19,000 shipments totalling some 43 million kilos per year.
CEVA’s solutions will enable FIAMM to guarantee accurate delivery times for shipments, as well as provide constant monitoring and tracking of goods for final users.
“We decided to entrust the supply chain management to a single and reliable partner in order to gain direct benefits in terms of simplification, efficiency and support our planned growth,” said Eddy Danuso, supply chain and purchasing manager of FIAMM. “Through the deep expertise developed by CEVA in our sector, FIAMM can now achieve concrete benefits in improved flexibility and cost reduction, while helping to guarantee our customers high-quality products and service.”
Adds David Albanesi, automotive and industrial sales director of CEVA in Italy: “We look forward to supporting FIAMM’s development by providing a comprehensive and reliable distribution function, as well as the development of integrated logistics solutions comprising our freight management and European road transport offerings.”
