The Netherlands-based supply chain management group CEVA Logistics is launching a new guaranteed weekly LCL (Less-than-Container Load) service from Antwerp, Belgium, to New York, USA.
The new service, with a transit time of 11 days, provides faster cargo availability at destination and more control over the cargo, CEVA says.
Further direct weekly services will be added from Antwerp throughout 2015, establishing the location as a key hub within CEVA’s LCL and Ocean Freight network.
”The opening of our LCL gateway in Antwerp provides CEVA with a greater opportunity to provide our customers with a wide range of destinations and LCL services,” said Ferwin Wieringa, CEVA’s Vice President Freight and Transport Management, Benelux.
”Strategically located in Europe and well connected with our Ground and Air Freight networks, it’s ideally placed as an operational hub. We look forward to further increasing the number of destinations served to allow our customers greater flexibility and choice.”
The new service is a direct sailing, with door-to-door delivery services also available. CEVA ensures end-to-end tracking to provide customers with visibility of where their cargo is at any point during the shipment.
