As part of the CMA CGM Group, CEVA Logistics is committed to finding better ways to transport and manage customer shipments and reach net zero carbon emission by 2050.

With a strong business presence across Australia and New Zealand, CEVA has been expanding and implementing its green initiatives across its 41 facilities in the two countries.

Recently, CEVA unveiled its Kemps Creek warehouse, a new 34,000 sqm facility with notable features including market-leading temperature control technologies, state-of-the-art racking, and traffic management for seamless flows.

“With the unveiling of our warehouse in Kemps Creek, CEVA is demonstrating our dedication to investing locally and expanding our footprint of sustainable logistics in Australia,” says Michael Harich, Head of Contract Logistics for CEVA Logistics in Australia and New Zealand.

“Together with our existing sites in Orchard Hills, Eastern Creek, and two other upcoming facilities in Erskine Park, we are forming a logistics cluster in Western Sydney to better serve the region.”

The facility is strategically located near the Western Sydney Airport and has access to key transportation routes, including the M4 and M7 motorways.

The Kemps Creek distribution warehouse was built to carbon-neutral specifications and 5-star Green Star certification standards. Sustainability features include:

  • 1510 solar panels for an 830kW photovoltaic system with battery, alongside translucent roof sheeting
  • LED lighting with motion sensors
  • Rapid roller shutter doors for the temp-controlled area to minimise energy consumption
  • Rainwater harvesting systems for water conservation, with recycled water being used for gardening and toilets
  • Building monitoring system for tracking and analysis of site-wide power and water consumption
  • Electric vehicle charging points
