Published: Monday, March 1, 2021

MARSEILLE: CEVA Logistics has expanded its rapid LTL (Less-than-truckload) services from China to Southeast-Asia via an optimized routing express service connecting China to Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore in seven days

CEVA said the service is designed to serve customers who do not have sufficient volumes to support Full Truckload Shipments (FTL). Emerging small to medium enterprises (SMEs), large local companies (LLAs) and multinational corporations will all benefit from this new service.

Through optimized routing, CEVA said the new service brings customers an express lead time of seven days from Shanghai to Singapore, offering them a comprehensive, reliable, fully-visible, flexible and customizable product.

 “The launch of our Rapid LTL Connection services in Asia is another testament to our commitment of continuously innovating with our services. We are confident that this new lead time-efficient and cost-effective solution will enable our customers to adapt to the increasingly evolving needs of their supply chains in a flexible and scalable way,” said Michael Leong, Ground & Rail Leader Product Leader CEVA Logistics SEAPAC.

Operating twice a week on Tuesday and Friday, it will importantly accept Li-Battery shipments (DG Class 9 Li-Batteries). Drivers on the service are specially trained and hold internationally recognized Dangerous Goods licenses for safe cross-border transport.

The Rapid LTL connects China’s regional hubs via Shenzhen to key cities in Southeast-Asia such as Hanoi, Bangkok, Penang, Kuala Lumpur and Singapore. CEVA Logistics is one of Asia’s largest players in cross border transportation and leverages its comprehensive network to move more than 25,000 TEUs annually
