Volkswagen Group’s subsidiary in Argentina has signed a three-year contract with Ceva Logistics for inbound parts logistics to its transmission line at the Córdoba Industrial Center.
Ceva will manage inbound deliveries, direct the parts warehousing, control inventory line processes and part picks, and supply the parts to their point of use on the production line.
“VW is a global automotive leader, and the Córdoba site is a strategically important manufacturing facility for many of their models,” acknowleged Fabio Menunekas, senior vice-president of contract logistics in Latin America for Ceva. “Their trust in Ceva with this contract is testament to our expertise and our range of automotive logistics solutions.”
The latest contract builds on Ceva’s long-established services for VW in Brazil. For example, Ceva has been managing the 132,000 sq.m spare parts centre in Vinhedo, Brazil, north of São Paulo for the last 12 years. The Vindedo facility handles more than 90,000 spare parts on a daily basis delivered to the centre from 600 suppliers. It is the largest facility of its kind in Latin America
VW’s Córdoba plant manufactures transmissions for a wide range of models, including Polo, T-Cross, Ibiza, Tiguan, Taigun, Kushaq, T-Roc and Caddy, as well as transmission components for Transporter T6.
