CEVA Logistics has and signed a new five-year contract with Western Power, the energy provider owned by the Western Australian state government.
CEVA operates out of Western Power’s main distribution centre in Jandakot as well as other regional and metro depots, and will work in close partnership with Western Power to develop and support its future supply chain strategy.
“We recognize these complex projects do not happen through good luck but through a methodical approach requiring careful planning, constant dialogue and in-depth testing,” said Colin Davis, supply chain manager at Western Power. “It was a great collaborative effort, which supports our focus on improving our business efficiency to better serve our customers.”
A key part of the collaboration is the implementation of CEVA’s Matrix warehouse management system, which delivers further functional improvement, better stock visibility and tighter controls to drive increased logistics productivity for Western Power.
CEVA has been providing a comprehensive range of logistics services to Western Power since 2008. In addition to warehousing, transport, depot management and reverse logistics, the company also provides value-added services including cable cutting and coiling, evidence retention, pole-to-hole management, bundling of transformer returns, emergency call-outs and quarantine management.
“Armed with a decade of specialist knowledge from working together, our team members have worked diligently to deliver on Western Power’s needs,” said Carlos Velez Rodriguez, managing director of Australia and New Zealand at CEVA Logistics. “We believe the introduction of Matrix WMS is the start of a new long-term strategic relationship between our two organizations and we look forward to enabling Western Power to continue to efficiently deliver energy to the WA community.”
