GEFCO becomes CEVA
The GEFCO brand is now CEVA Logistics. With this change, CEVA Logistics announced today the creation of a dedicated Finished Vehicle Logistics (FVL) organisation as part of its integration of GEFCO.
The move comes following the purchase of the French automotive logistics specialist in July 2022 by the CMA CGM Group.
GEFCO’s remaining business, mostly in contract logistics and ground transportation, is being integrated into CEVA’s existing operations. CEVA plans to finish integration activities and replace the GEFCO brand worldwide in 2023.
CEVA Logistics offers a full range of global logistics and supply chain services, including contract logistics and air, ocean, ground and finished vehicle transport. With the acquisition and integration of GEFCO, CEVA is now the largest France-based logistics company and a global leader in automotive logistics solutions. CEVA moved its global headquarters to Marseille in 2019.
Guillaume Col, Deputy CEO, Regions and Products, CEVA Logistics said: “With the automotive industry undergoing significant transformation, integrating a mature finished vehicle organiSation puts CEVA in a very strong position. With a unique depth of expertise and solutions at all stages of the automotive supply chain, we are already developing comprehensive, end-to-end solutions for this sector.”
Adding, Mathieu Friedberg, CEO, CEVA Logistics said: “Our promise of Responsive Logistics requires high levels of industry know-how, so we are growing in both scale and expertise to co-create value with our customers. With our new CEVA colleagues who came from GEFCO, we are able to offer extensive global capabilities to a wide range of industries, including the automotive industry. Backed by the CMA CGM Group, we expect our growth to continue as we target becoming a Top 3 global 3PL.”
