The first step of a strategic process of positioning CEVA in the area north of Madrid

February 6, 2018

Madrid, Spain – CEVA Logistics has opened a new multi-user warehouse in central Spain.

The new site is located at Alovera, an industrial area, 50 km north east of Madrid. The facilities comprise 16,300 sqm, in total with 400 sqm office facilities, and almost 16,000 sqm of warehousing space, and will eventually contain the operations of several customers.   

Expert teams, experienced in operating multi-user warehouses have already been moved into Alovera to provide customers with the highest service standards. It’s location next to two motorways makes it easy for customer goods deliveries and dispatch.

CEVA already has a number of other multi-user centers in Spain, including at Subirats, in Catalonia, and in the Ontigola area south area of Madrid.  Over their years of operation multi-user facilities have proven the benefits of these kinds of warehouses to CEVA customers through synergies, flexibility, better handling peak seasons and the operational knowledge of the staff employed there. 

The opening of this new multi-user warehouse is a key part of CEVA’s growth strategy across Iberia. It is also the first step of a strategic process of positioning CEVA in the area north of Madrid, where previously it had no presence and will enable the company to expand its plan to continue expanding in the near future. Its easy connections to the Spanish motorway network provide simple connections to both Madrid and Barcelona.  The operations of an existing customer have already been successfully implemented at the new Alovera site, and the future locating of existing and new customers is well under way.

“I am very excited about the opening of this third multi-user warehouse,” said Marco Galbusera, managing director of CEVA in Iberia. “We had been waiting for the perfect opportunity to expand our capabilities to offer excellence, synergies and competitive advantages to our customers and the north of Madrid was the key to this because of its strategic geographic position. This new site highlights our commitment to the Spanish market and we expect to continue the expansion over the coming years.”
