Suzuki awards Ceva 7.9m euro extension

Suzuki has renewed its distribution contract with Ceva in a deal worth 7.9 million euros.

Ceva will to manage the nationwide distribution of aftermarket vehicle and marine parts for a further three years, delivering some two million parts per year.

The operator has been providing dedicated distribution services for Suzuki in the UK since 1994. However in April 2011 Ceva began operating the contract via its specialist automotive network.

Suziki dealers will be provided with a web based system to handle enquiries, dealer warranty and returns tracking. This will use Ceva’s in-cab asset management track and trace system which monitors all transactions and the movement of roll cages, including all returns and reverse logistics, allowing real time visibility.

Wayne Dye, Suzuki’s general manager parts and accessories, said: “During our long standing relationship with Ceva our partnership has evolved in many ways, including the introduction of double deck trailers and sophisticated IT systems. By working with Ceva and its other automotive customers we are joining an established automotive network which will improve cost efficiency and deliver higher service levels for our dealerships.”
