Ceva Logistics has been chosen to operate the movement of parts in the production processes for Ford’s engine and transmission factory, in Taubaté, São Paulo State.
Ceva manages a 5,000 sq m warehouse where it receives and distributes materials, line supplies, production control and product distribution, inter-factory transport with full-time dedicated trucks, among others.
The transport of parts between production processes, which was previously performed by Ford itself, covers now the engines, transmissions and chassis factories. With the new service, 35 additional employees were added to the workforce, with a total of 162 staff dedicated to the customer.
Luiz Carlos Silva, Ford’s material planning and logistics manager, said: “The expansion in the scope of services provided by Ceva has the goal of achieving a higher integration between the activities of reception, storage and provisioning of the production lines. The new contract includes incorporated activities for part transport in our manufacturing process. Ceva is now responsible for the totality of our intralogistics.”
