CEVA Logistics has won the contract to manage the supply chain of the largest interconnected electricity network in Western Australia.
The company has announced the signing of a new contract to provide logistic services to Western Power, which operates the isolated electricity networks of 88,000 kilometres of power lines.
CEVA Australia managing director Howard Critchley said the new partnership was expected to strengthen its service capability, encompassing warehousing, materials handling and transportation operations.
“As part of the service solution for Western Power, CEVA will manage a range of specialised and often heavy goods such as transformers, cable, street lighting, and telecommunications equipment under controlled conditions for short and long periods,” Mr Critchley said.
Western Power managing director Doug Aberle said the partnership was sought to establish an effective transport and logistics chain for intrastate services to Western Power depots and construction sites.
Mr Aberle said: “CEVA’s focus on achieving operational excellence has already seen development of a framework that clearly defines specific quality and service levels to ensure that the operation not only gets off to a good start, but that it is also continually improved upon.”
