Vileda Renews UK Contract With CEVA

CEVA Logistics, one of the world’s leading supply chain management companies, is delighted to announce that it has secured a fi ve-year, multi-million euro contract renewal with Vileda.

Under the renewed contract which runs to 2018, CEVA will continue to provide Vileda with warehousing and transportation services, in addition to the receipt and management of raw materials and products, re-packing services, and the storage of spare parts in the UK.

CEVA stores approximately 5,300 pallets across over 700 SKUs for Vileda in its multi-user warehouse facility in Corby, Northamptonshire. The company also assembles 100 different product lines from over 275,000 raw components before dispatching around 350 orders per week, equating to around 2.7 million cases per annum. Vileda’s Consumer and Professional product ranges are also assembled into the correct packaging denomination and product confi guration before distributing orders to its UK wholesalers. In addition to this, CEVA also provides product receipt, stock management, supplier collections and label

production as part of the solution.

Mirib Michael, Supply Chain Manager for Vileda, said: “CEVA provides a well managed and effi cient converting, warehousing and transport solution. The service levels and performance that we have come to expect from CEVA is very pleasing, particularly in the areas of on-time, in-full deliveries, and stock

accuracy where KPIs are tracking at very high levels. This year, as part of CEVA’s LEAN methodology, a full review of our converting operation was undertaken which resulted in a complete overhaul of the way product fl ows through the warehouse and converting area. The subsequent changes have delivered some huge benefi ts, and we look forward to further improvement measures across the contract term.”

Matthew Carroll, CEVA’s Regional Director for Consumer and Retail in the UK, said: “We are delighted to be awarded this contract extension with Vileda. The team at Corby work extremely hard to continually maintain very high service levels, and I am extremely confi dent that with the inherent culture of continuous improvement across our operations, the team will continue to deliver real benefi ts for this customer.”

As part of CEVA’s holistic approach to managing and driving effi ciency in Vileda’s supply chain, it works closely with Vileda’s packaging suppliers and parcel network, holding regular reviews and exploring cost saving opportunities.

HSS Hire Services Group (HSS Hire) has acquired Premiere FCM Limited (TecServ), the specialist provider of maintenance services for cleaning machines from Premiere Products Group.

The acquisition will accelerate HSS’ growth in the cleaning sector, adding a national fl eet of engineers famous for their ‘fi rst fi x’ record, and bringing a new dimension to Reintec, HSS’ own market-leading cleaning equipment service, known for its stand-out range of green machines and unique service proposition.

Chris Davies, Chief Executive Offi cer 16 | NEWSFLASH

It is an exciting time for our business as we embark upon the next stage of growth and development, increasing our presence in existing markets and expanding into new ones throughout the UK and Ireland.”

TecServ’s capabilities will complement and broaden the footprint of Reintec. It has a successful track record in expert maintenance services in contract cleaning for local authorities, PFI

sites and specialist food facilities throughout the UK, as well as to major contract cleaners.

HSS and TecServ will still continue to partner with Premiere Products Group though, to provide complete cleaning solutions for all customers.
