CEVA Logistics opened a new facility this week in the Ruhale area of Taguig, Philippines, offering its customers a new warehouse with advanced technology and environmental best practices.
The new 14,000-square-meter facility allows CEVA to serve existing customers better, keeping pace with current demand while remaining flexible for future capacity needs in the rapidly growing Asia Pacific region.
Designed to meet a wide range of warehousing and logistics needs
The Ruhale warehouse boasts a full suite of warehousing and logistics services for customers across various industries, including electronics, food, and beverages. The facility features ambient, temperature-controlled and dangerous goods storage, 13 loading bays, floor staging and an optimised shelving configuration that can accommodate up to 16,000 pallet positions.
Currently employing approximately 50 people, the warehouse offers customers a full range of warehousing, distribution, and value-added services, including picking and packing, labelling, bundling, re-work, tax stamping and digital bottle printing. The CEVA team can also manage the return and reverse logistics and integrated B2B and B2C omnichannel operations.
The site was chosen based on its proximity to Manila’s city centre, as well as for its easy access to major transportation hubs, including Manila’s international and domestic airports and seaports, and to major highways for ground transport options.
Meeting the needs of today with an eye on the future
In addition to meeting anticipated regional capacity needs, the Ruhale warehouse was also built with an eye on the future in terms of adopting warehouse innovations. Employing state-of-art technology to improve both employee health and safety and risk management, the warehouse also incorporates best practices in waste management and energy conservation to improve the facility’s carbon footprint and environmental impact. To optimise productivity, digital lean dashboards have also been implemented. Planned future enhancements include the use of wearable device scanners, drones for stock-taking and cleaning robots for facility maintenance.
Elaine Low, managing director of Southeast Asia and Pacific, CEVA Logistics, said, “I am very proud of the team’s expansion in the Philippines, and I am confident this strategic investment in one of Southeast Asia’s more vibrant markets will be the start of many more successful ventures as we continue to support customers’ supply chains with responsive logistics solutions.”
