CEVA Logistics, one of the world’s leading supply chain companies, has extended its partnership with SSL - a consumer brand company with the leading global brands Durex and Scholl plus a diverse portfolio of locally owned brands - to manage European warehousing activities for Dr. Scholl's shoes. The new contract includes the management of warehousing operations for the European market.
CEVA has created a European hub for SSL at the Somaglia facility, in the Italian region Lombardy. Four thousand square meters are used to store Dr. Scholl's products destined for distribution centers across the continent. Every year CEVA manages at least 75,000 parcels on almost 6,000 pallets on behalf of SSL. At least 15% of these parcels are assembled through picking-per-unit to meet the customer’s specific orders.
CEVA's partnership with SSL started in 1989. The Company is SSL's only logistics partner in Italy responsible for warehousing and distribution for the para-pharmaceutical product lines destined for drugstores and retailers. "This new contract is a recognition of CEVA’s capability to offer optimal supply chain solution focused on multinational deliveries", commented Carlo Rosa, CEVA Logistics General Manager Consumer Division.
