Heinz has awarded Ceva Logistics a five year contract to manage its ocean freight.
Ceva said the agreement represents the first time that a shipper with an annual volume of 60,000 TEUs has entrusted a single logistics provider with exclusive management of its Oceanfreight.
Heinz had previously utilised direct contracts with more than 20 shipping lines to move its global ocean freight.
The strategy has been led by Heinz’s global procurement organisation. The benefits for Heinz include a considerable complexity reduction, enhanced supply chain visibility and reduced supply chain cost.
