BMW awards parts distribution deal to Ceva

BMW UK has awarded Ceva Logistics a contract to manage the delivery of spare parts to some 200 BMW and Mini dealerships across the UK and Northern Ireland.

Ceva will transport goods using a collaborative delivery service specific to the requirements of moving automotive parts overnight.

The company says by doing so it can provide a service typical of a dedicated operation but with a significantly lower cost.

Ceva will be using its C-CAM IT track and trace system in order to fulfil the contract, which monitors all transactions and movement of assets, including all returns and reverse logistics.

Martin Douglas, national parts manager at BMW (UK), said: “BMW and Ceva already work together in many markets around the world.

“Their high level of expertise in the automotive sector makes then the clear choice of our UK parts distribution.”

David Jackman, automotive business sector director at Ceva in UK and Ireland, added: “ This [contract] will expand the work we already do with BMW in Australia, Brazil, China, Poland and the USA.”
