CEVA logistics has signed an MoU with Goodpack, which operates the world’s largest fleet of Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBCs), to develop a new game-changing concept for transportation within the tire industry.
The aim is to deliver a complete and robust supply chain solution for the tyre industry in a sustainable and environmentally friendly way which will benefit the whole industry and set new standards in lowering its carbon footprint.
CEVA’s market-leading tyre network will begin using Goodpack’s steel containers for both transportation and storage of tyres across Asia, North America and Australia, whereby Goodpack will be the sole supplier to CEVA . .
Under the terms of the MoU both companies will work collaboratively with their customers to maximise usage of the IBCs not only in the transport of finished goods but all other elements of the supply chain.
“Many tire customers are under pressure from Governments and the environmental lobby to come up with solutions for improving their footprint when it comes to the impact which tires can have. This new initiative will enable us to be more efficient, reduce the number of empty IBC movements globally and greatly reduce the customer’s carbon footprint,” said CEVA’s Executive Vice President automotive sector, Antonio Fondevilla.
