CEVA Logistics opened a new 14,000-square-meter facility in the Philippines earlier this month, as the company looks to enhance its capabilities for the Southeast Asian market.
The warehouse will serve the electronics and F&B sector with a full range of warehousing, distribution and value-added services, including picking and packing, labeling, bundling, re-work, tax stamping and digital bottle printing.
The facility has ambient and temperature-controlled and dangerous goods storage, 13 loading bays, floor staging and an optimized shelving configuration that can accommodate up to 16,000 pallet positions.
CEVA said the local team will also manage return and reverse logistics and integrated B2B and B2C omni-channel operations.
Located near Manila’s city center in Taguig, the warehouse was built with the intent to adopt warehouse innovations, the forwarder noted. Planned enhancements include the use of wearable device scanners, drones for stock-taking and cleaning robots for facility maintenance.
