Ford Motor Company has retained CEVA to provide container management, deconsolidation, metering, sequencing, transportation and inventory control for the car maker’s Louisville Assembly Plant (LAP) in Louisville, Kentucky. CEVA has served Ford LAP as a Manufacturing Support Center (MSC) provider for the past four years.

CEVA will renew services to include metering, small lot logistics, return container management and just-in-time transportation to and from the plant. CEVA will also expand its services to provide sequencing to the line of various parts in colour/type order for ease of installation. CEVA will be investing in improvements to its current facilities by adding capacity in the form of an additional facility and equipment at the LAP site to better serve Ford.

“It is exciting to renew and expand our manufacturing support services to Ford in Louisville. We appreciate this commitment from one of our largest global customers,” said Kerry Zielinski, CEVA’s vice-president of business development for automotive in North America.

“The Automotive sector is one of CEVA’s largest and we owe our successes to operational excellence and year-over-year service improvements on Ford’s behalf.”
