CEVA Logistics launches expansion plan for Africa

CEVA Logistics has launched a three-part expansion plan for the African market. The company has accelerated its expansion in East and Southern Africa with the acquisition of AMI Worldwide.
The company has integrated three CMA CGM Inland Services (CCIS) facilities and is opening its own new operations. Three CCIS facilities are also joining CEVA’s network in Mali, Burkina Faso and Ivory Coast. These intermodal sites provide a launch platform for the company’s freight management ambitions. They offer freight forwarding services in addition to their full range of inland solutions related to container fleet management and ocean freight value-added services such as ‘reefer’ (refrigerated container) management services, stuffing and de-stuffing of containers, dry port and container depot functions. CEVA is also expanding in Mauritania, where a direct presence has been established with extensive expertise in transit corridor operations, and in Ethiopia, where a new joint venture with MACFAA will be integrated into the CEVA network once all regulatory approvals are obtained.
