CEVA adds 5 more network to its airfreight locations

Published: Tuesday, October 18, 2022

CEVA Logistics has expanded its owned and controlled SKYCAPACITY program and added five more stations to its network of airfreight locations certified under IATA’s CEIV Lithium Battery program.

In an announcement at IATA’s World Cargo Symposium in London, CEVA confirmed that it has purchased additional air capacity on key routes. The company now controls more than 1,300 tons per week thanks to more than 50 flights serving 20 airports.

CEVA said that its capacity program offers consistent pricing and guaranteed capacity despite market peaks and lows.

The CEVA network currently offers a variety of destinations to and from North and South America, Europe and Asia Pacific.

The network spans multiple carriers and includes freighter, pax freighter and passenger capacity — all available with management, tracking and customs services. The network is also available as a spot cargo solution for customers.

Said Peter Penseel, chief operating officer, air freight, CEVA Logistics: “We’re continuing to expand our global network as well as the quality and safety of our air transport services.

“With the improved SKYCAPACITY program and our newly CEIV certified air stations, we have strongly increased our ability to co-create value with our clients across a wide range of industries.”

In a separate announcement, CEVA’s locations in Frankfurt, Incheon, Shanghai (PVG), Singapore and Tokyo are now CEIV certified in the handling of lithium batteries, joining its Amsterdam and Hong Kong airfreight stations.

CEVA became the world’s first company to receive the new IATA CEIV certification in 2021 after teaming with IATA to support the development of the new program.

CEVA expects to receive the certification at two US locations in Atlanta and Detroit by the end of 2022, bringing its total number of certified stations to nine.

The certification confirms each facility’s ability to properly handle and store lithium batteries, as well as validates the necessary training and expertise of on-site employees.
