CEVA Logistics, has completed Phase One of a major global inbound aero logistics project for Rolls-Royce. Starting in 2017 and running through the first half this year CEVA has been responsible for designing, implementing and managing the domestic, regional and international shipment of aerospace parts for both the civil and defence divisions of Rolls-Royce.
Over 1,200 shipments per week with an average weight of 300-500 kgs and ranging from and small parcels to out-of-gauge are moved into multiple Rolls-Royce facilities across the UK, Germany, US and Singapore. By establishing three global control towers at Ashby-de-la-Zouch, UK, Singapore and Jacksonville FL, and by utilising its Matrix Supply Chain Management global platform CEVA has been able to transform the way Rolls-Royce manages its inbound inventory. In order to achieve this CEVA has transitioned some 800+ individual Rolls-Royce suppliers onto its Matrix system to provide Rolls-Royce with a single source for the data and visibility of its shipments.
