Ceva Logistics has officially opened two new facilities in Western Australia, at Hazelmere and nearby High Wycombe, both of which are near the Perth Airport freight hub.
At Hazelmere, Ceva has built a 60,000 sq.m multi-user complex that has 4,600 racking locations, continuous loading docks and advanced materials handling equipment. The company also highlighted the facility’s integrated IT and warehouse management systems, as well as its bonded warehouse.
The 40,000 sq.m integrated transport and new vehicle storage facility at High Wycombe is designed to process some 25,000 vehicles each year. It features hail protection nets, an automated car wash and truck height detection sensors.
Ceva has partnered with major customers across the automotive, energy and mining, and consumer and retail sectors to launch the new facilities. They were officially opened by the Hon. Bill Marmion MP, Western Australia’s minister for finance and mines and petroleum.
“Ceva has a long history in Western Australia and we are very excited about this next chapter,” said managing director for Australia and New Zealand, Clayton Noble. “Our new facilities are an important investment that will give our customers tangible benefits through economies of scale, shared resources and industry-leading technology.”
The company said in a statement that both facilities had been built incorporating sustainable design, including translucent roof sheeting for natural light, high efficiency T5 warehouse lighting, solar hot water systems, drought resistant landscaping and rainwater harvesting.
